ADHD & Gifted?
Can a Child with ADHD be Gifted?
Studies have shown that 50% of kids who are gifted have ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. But that doesn’t mean that 50% of people who have ADHD are Gifted. Alas. It doesn’t work that way. See that’s why statistics are tricky. Just cause of half of some group have something, doesn’t mean having that something gives you a 50-50 shot at being in that group… Y’see?… okay studies have shown 50% of kids who are gifted have ADHD attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, but that doesn’t mean that 50% of people who have ADHD are gifted, alas it doesn’t work that way.
Statistics are tricky because just because half of something have something doesn’t mean that having something gives you a 50/50 chance of being in that something, you see? okay one out of every six guys in the village people are a cop but that doesn’t mean that one out of six cops are in the village people they may wish they were but they’re not. Over 80% of people who have adult ADHD have trouble paying attention but just because you have trouble paying attention doesn’t mean there’s an 80% chance you have ADHD you could have anxiety disorder, depression, the overworked, planning your wedding, going through your divorce, overwhelmed, under stimulated, heck you could have a live iguana in your pants well you but someone… it happened to a friend… it’s the worst pet store.
