Quotes on ADHD

"Having Ritalin is like having fifty TV sets going off in my head at once. Ritalin works by turning of forty-nine of them"

"In his office, he usually has a computer, several TV shows, and the radio going at once, constantly bouncing from thing to thing to keep from getting bored, I like it like that, he says, but it drives my wife crazy".

"When Grady (his son) was diagnosed, I was in big denial about it. I thought, well either they're overdiagnosing him, or he's not trying hard enough, or he just needs to work harder and concentrate harder - all the things my father told me. Now I reallly understand this condition."

"Clarence says journalism was a "perfect" match for him. The writing is short, he says, there's always a deadline. that makes it a lot easier to stay on track."

"He makes a comparison between prejudices against people of color and people with learning differences. "I grew up as a black kid in America in the fifties and sixties. People wanted to put me in a box, expecting me to be in a certain way, Clarence says. I was always fighting against that. I see the same thing happening to kids with ADD. People expect them to act and learn a certain way, but they don't. They have to fight to figure out who they are and what they need. Every child learns differently. Clarence says."
