ADD a Disability?Views: 204

Hi Susan,

I agree, I don't feel that I have a disability at all. I have "secret weapons" that my associates don't have, but as with any "secret weapon" you do have to know how to handle it and keep it from blowing up in your face ;) There are coping techniques and different ways of doing things to take advantage of the unique abilities of the ADD brain, while avoiding the pitfalls.

I wonder what society would be like if 50.1% of the population was diagnosed with ADD? Would the other 49.9% ... no longer the "norm" ... be considered disabled because they were not as creative or able to handle as many tasks at once as most people (the "normal" ones with ADD)? Or would we accept them for their unique gifts, such as the ability to perform repetitive tasks for long periods of time?
