A diagnosis of ADHD can bring some peace of mind to a lot of people. Most people appreciate it as an explanation of why they think the way they do. Some people spend years feeling that there is something “wrong” with them because they have spent those years as a round peg in a square hole. But a diagnosis should be a beginning and not an ending. So now what? ADHD does not then become an excuse. Understanding the way you or your child thinks will help clarify what your natural tendencies are and how best to use them.
