Learn to tap the skills and talents unique to those with ADHD and enhance your ability to succeed socially, academically, and in your career.

An inability to focus, impulsiveness, misbehavior, frequent daydreaming, and a predisposal to addiction are frequently referenced traits of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). But what about the gifts of ADHD? In Movers, Dreamers, and Risk Takers, Kevin Roberts, author of Cyber Junkie, takes a fresh approach to this much-written-about topic to help those with ADHD--their parents, teachers, and friends--to tap the hidden strengths and actual advantages inherent in the ADHD personality.Those with ADHD have a predisposition to confronting the challenges of life and a deep preference for perceiving the world creatively. Roberts helps readers appreciate how the perceptual, interpersonal, and cognitive differences of “ADHDers” like these can be translated into unique skills and talents that can enhance their ability to be successful socially, academically, and in their careers.Roberts combines the latest research with personal stories, as well as insights born from his work with those with ADHD. He shows readers how to get past the stigma of this condition to eventually turn what have been seen as “symptoms” into character strengths and creative ways to make life richer and more interesting for themselves and the people around them.
Kevin Roberts is a teacher and ADHD coach with a master’s degree in ADHD studies. He is also the author of Cyber Junkie: Escape the Gaming and Internet Trap. Roberts lives in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.

This is how we will handle things.Thanks, Mr. Roberts for an amazing tool!”--Reviews By Molly“Thankfully, this book is every bit as positive, and humorous, as it promises to be. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to everyone who knows someone with ADHD, has ADHD, is an educatorwell, to everybody, really. It’s funny, filled with current research on ADHD, and most importantly, gives hope that those with ADHD can not only succeed in life, but be a powerful force in it, coming up with new ways of doing things that the rest of us can’t even dream of.”--Life Unfocused“Once I started reading Movers Dreamers and Risk-Takers, I couldn't stop as I was so inspired and my brain was going crazy with joy that someone in the world understands what my kids and I go through on a daily basis. So much of my day is spent avoiding negative criticism (from certain people) that it is refreshing to read a positive approach at looking at ADHD.”--Book Snob Blog“Movers, Dreamers and Risk-takers is a must-read for every parent, caregiver, teacher and individual who knows someone, works with someone and/or cares for someone who struggles with ADHD. It is powerful. For all the knowledge it imparts, but even more for the power it gives to families and individuals to make ADHD a blessing rather than a curse; Movers, Dreamers, and Risk-takers is invaluable!”--My Bookshelf Blog“As a writer, Roberts is engaging; as a comedian, he is able to laugh at himself and keep the book light-hearted and upbeat. As a life coach, ADHD counselor, and ADHD patient, he demonstrates that he has the professional and personal experience to speak from a position of authority on the subject. This combination of personal and professional experience, positivity, and humor makes his book an irresistible read.”--PsychCentral
