Twice Exceptional: ADD or ADHD
||Nurturing the exceptionally gifted child
||This article by Joe Sinclair discusses ADD and ADHD compared to giftedness in children. It is not the intention of this article to deal with the causes and treatment of children suffering from ADD or ADHD. This article addresses the fact that until recently it was not recognized that similar behavioral difficulties might be the result of a child's inability to integrate into a classroom or group environment because of his/her exceptional intelligence.
