Those diagnosed with ADHD may experience the following:
Hyperfocus - the ability to focus on a task for hours on end essentially tuning out everything else around them.
Resilience - Living with ADHD is challenging and means overcoming a number of obstacles that, over time, can build resilience and strength of character.
Creativity - those with ADHD are often highly creative - this may be because people with ADHD often have to approach tasks differently which means they can become great problem solvers and can often think of unique solutions because of their different perspectives.
Conversational skills - people with ADHD are often great conversationalists - this ability applies especially to those who have more of the inattentive type of ADHD. Studies also suggest that people with ADHD may have higher levels of social intelligence, humour and empathy.
Spontaneity and Courage - many people enjoy the unplanned moments and adventures that keep life interesting, and individuals with ADHD excel in this area. Their impulsive nature can lend itself to spontaneous activities that often leave enjoyable and lasting memories.

Hyperlexia - Learning to read at a very early age.
