The Asset: A.D.D. my Ass! (Nonfiction)
4 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:30PM
Description: The Asset: A.D.D. My Ass!, a brand new book authored by Carol Gignoux, M.Ed.,SCAC explores the ground-breaking concept that people diagnosed with ADD (attention deficit disorder) or ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) possess special, unique and often amazing abilities. The book, being released chapter by chapter as it is written, is an exploration of how people with ADD / ADHD are different, and how these differences are an asset, not a deficit to their loved ones, co-workers, and society as a whole. After all, inventors, scientists and famous artists such as Einstein, Picasso, John F. Kennedy, Leonardo da Vinci, and Mozart all have made global contributions to humanity. And all were diagnosed with ADD. Carol has coined the new term “rAfters, (rapid fire thinkers) to represent the special skills and unique abilities possessed by those with ADD / ADHD. Rapid Fire Thinkers have changed the world as we know it. Gignoux opens up a tool chest for self-esteem and thought and action control. She explores diet and medication but her message is freshest when she talks about the power of the spirit to alter and transform life.
