Inattentive ADHD Genius
by Tess Messer
at him to get him to pay attention to what was happening in front of him.
Poor Robert Frost was kicked out of school for daydreaming and Nikola Tesla could
work out his entire inventions in his head without ever putting anything on paper.

I feel that calling these folks inattentive is really kind of silly. These folks were
absolutely attending to some pretty heady stuff. What they were not attending to is
what is going on in front of them. People with Inattentive ADHD often cannot stop
'daydreaming' because what they are thinking about is extremely interesting and
what is going on around them is, comparatively, less interesting.

One of the most effective classroom accommodations for children with Inattentive
ADHD is to keep them engaged in the learning process. A classroom where an
instructor lectures on and on about a topic, without any required input or
engagement from the students can be a recipe for disaster for the Inattentive ADHD
child. Many parents have found that schools that understand that learning is an active
process are a much better fit for children with Inattentive ADHD.

Einstein, Edison, Wright, and Tesla may well have been diagnosed with Inattentive
ADHD. Would this have made them less Creative? Some folks believe that putting
creative inattentive individuals on medication will stifle their creativity. I actually think
that this is not the case. It is actually quite possible that these folks would have been
even more creative and even more productive with a bit of medication.

We have anecdotal data that reports that too high a dose of stimulants makes the
inattentive less curious but just the right dose is helpful. So these great inventors
would probably not have benefited from a high dose of Ritalin but a low dose of
Ritalin may have made them even more amazing and productive than they were
already.

Individuals with Inattentive ADHD
spend a great deal of time thinking
about things which are going on in
their minds and a lot less time
attending to the here and now. This is
considered a major liability in school
but it may, in fact, be the seed of
great creative inventions.

Albert Einstein as a college student
was described as being inattentive,
often spaced out, and disorganized.
Thomas Edison was said to be an
incurable daydreamer, and Frank
Lloyd Wright daydreamed so
intensely that his family had to shout
