There is no link between ADHD and intelligence
Your child is likely to be more creative, spontaneous, caring, and energetic than anyone you may know – and there is no link between ADHD and intelligence. Here are some of the traits of this disorder, which you’ll see are very valuable attributes.
- Out-of-the-box thinking, a keen sense of humour, drive, and passion.
- Troubleshooting and the ability to push past setbacks.
- A generous, kind and caring nature.
- A strong sense of justice and a willingness to take risks.
More research about the benefits of ADHD is required, however, focusing on these benefits can help you and your child live with the condition more positively.
