Can reframing the wording surrounding ADHD help erase the stigma?

ADHD will continue to have “stigma” as many of us with this trait require accommodations, but it should never induce shame. I call ADHD the “entrepreneur’s trait” in this US News Health article by Jennifer Lea Reynolds.

    I was at the ACO conference in Reston VA in April and attended a workshop on shame that presented Dr. Brene Brown’s “The Daring Way” for Shame Resilience. – The ADHD Guy

  2. TheADHDGuy1 says:

    I call ADHD a condition deliberately, because words and how we think is important. ADHD is not a “problem.” Sure, it can cause problems, but ADHD itself is a neurophysiological condition. It is not a mental illness. It’s not a behavior problem. It’s not a moral degeneration. Yet many folks have seen it as such, and still do. The objective is to dispense with, and dispel the, at times, gross misunderstandings and myths that still exist out there about ADHD. – Shane Bruce
