Many researchers and artists say ADHD and other learning differences are forms of neurodiversity that can actually benefit creative expression.
Painter Chuck Close says, “In the 40s or 50s no one knew from learning disabilities; I was just dumb. I learned early on that since I wasn’t athletic, I couldn’t run or throw or catch a ball, I needed to do something to keep people around me. I began to realize that one of the things I could do that my friends couldn’t do was draw.”
