In this powerful new video, six young people talk about their experiences coping with ADHD!

These inspiring role models talk about their strengths, successes and dreams. These young people offer a sense of hope for other children and teenagers with ADHD. Their message is simple but powerful: "We have ADD and we're OK!" They have learned to recognize their strengths, feel good about themselves and compensate for the challenges of having ADHD.

Comments from the Director, Chris A. Zeigler Dendy: This uplifting video was produced primarily to give parents, children and teenagers a sense of hope regarding the challenges of ADHD. In my opinion, the teenagers themselves are in the best position to tell others what the experience is really like and what has helped them cope effectively with this challenge. Furthermore, children and teenagers with ADHD are much more likely to listen to other teenagers rather than their parents or another adult. In spite of over thirty years experience as a former teacher, school psychologist, mental counselor and administrator, but perhaps more importantly, as the mother of two grown sons with ADHD, I know first hand just how difficult and frightening the ADHD teenage years can be. Many parents, teachers, guidance counselors, therapists, and physicians have found that this video has been extremely helpful for children, teenagers and families who are coping with ADHD.

Here are a few quotes regarding their thoughts about taking medication: Julie, 7th grade, "Medication calms me down and helps me concentrate."
Jerry, 11th grade, "If I don't take my medication, I forget the small details in language arts, like writing down the work. Because if I don't take it, I just sit there. The medicine also helps me stay awake. If I don't take it, that's one of my first signs. I'm practically falling asleep."
Lewis, high school graduate, "I don't like the way medication makes me feel but I know I need to take it so I can do okay in school."
Alex, college jr., "It doesn't do me any good to study unless I've had my medication. Otherwise, I won't remember what I studied."
Jerry, 11th grade, "It helps me get my work done. It doesn't really affect my personality that much except maybe I don't yell out in class as much or get in trouble as much."
