The Edison Gene: Attention Deficit Disorder
with Thom Hartmann
December 11 at 1pm et-Thursday
Listen on the web at http://www.ieamericaradio.com

Thom Hartmann provides new genetic evidence that children and adults with ADHD have gifts, not liabilities. He argues that the brains of these children and adults who possess the Edison Gene are wired to give them brilliant success as innovators, inventors, explorers, and entrepreneurs, but that those same
qualities often cause them problems in the context of our public schools. Thom offers concrete strategies for helping Edison gene children and adults to reach their full potential and shows that rather than being "problems," they are an important and vital gift to our society and world.

The Thom Hartmann Program "Uncommon Sense from the Radical Middle" Thom Hartmann is the man who uncovers corporate lies, deception by mega-media, and rampant confusion in the offices of our politicians.

Might they not be both?

a vital gift and
a source of problems,

choose to see
as opportunities?

Yes they are both in my oppinion

I have been very fortunate to discover early the gifts of ADD but not without paying the sevear social and family price that was included in the price tag for my Good Fortune.

This would go back to a post I made somewhere in history about how we should be teaching our children in different ways and getting away from the "BOX " that society tries to put every one into

( look up the song by Crosby Stills Nash and Young) I believe

Teach Your Children




And Tara

Thank you for alerting me to this information

and curse you for telling me it is avalible on satilite radio.

they are wonderful devices for the boring life of the long haul truc driver and I had thouraly convinced myself that I didnt need one.

Now I have to go through the entire battle again of convincing my self of that I dont need another toy as much as I want one.

Hey folks,

did you hear him expressing a challenge, based on research, that drugs did anything OTHER THAN make teacher's assessments of behavior improve... that is, not even grades improve?

Did you hear him say that depression was the ready result of being so drugged?

I think this might belong, as a discussion in the thread already started:
