About the series:


"ADventures Heading up and Down" is a web series I'm creating with my kids to show ADHD humorously yet truthfully, and hopefully challenge public conceptions of ADHD.

Being highly aware of our disadvantages as well as our advantages as ADHD's, we share a unique view of ourselves, which by no means includes the words "deficit" or "disorder". We don't feel lacking (quite the contrary: what a load of simultaneous thoughts!) and we're quite in good order (though our stuff, just like our minds, may be a tad unorganized, but hey, we can always find a squirrel!).

This is why we think the word ADDED better describes our difference: compared with other people, we often have added creativity, imagination and curiosity, alongside added distractions, forgetfulness and impulsiveness.
