In his new book, “Managing the Gift of your ADD/HD Child,” Emery discusses the different learning and thinking styles that these individuals bring to the table, and the problems they can face – including depression, anxiety and isolation - from trying to function in a non-ADD world.
"When we look at our current treatment plans for ADD/HD, it seems as if they are consistently based more on how to make them fit into the box we want them instead of truly helping them accept and work with the shape they were given,” said Emery.
Emery’s latest book challenges mainstream thinking on ADD/HD, emphasizing that these individuals “do not need to be fixed” and actually represent another step in humanity’s evolution.
“Recognizing both the positive and negative parts of the impacts of ADD/HD is a better place to begin than simply just trying to turn these individuals into people who are easier for us to deal with,” said Emery.
