Actually, the statistics show that 50% of Gifted Children have ADHD. In a DVD we are working on right now Dr. Jain tells the story of a patient who was diagnosed as retarded as a child. He held down menial jobs, married a ‘low functioning woman’ and had kids. The kids had ADHD. Dr. J met the parents and told the father, “I don’t think you are retarded.” The guy got tested. He had a genius I.Q.. But his ADHD had interfered with him learning anything. He started treatment, and within five years had finished university and gone on to Law School.

As for Dyslexia and Dyscalcula and other disorders, noted ADDer, Sir Richard Branson (Of Virgin Mobile, Virgin Airlines, Virgin Radio, Virgin everything else with the possible exception of Virgin Mary) cannot read and cannot add up a column of figures. He hired people who can.
