Discover How to Optimize Your Mind & Achieve Your Goals........More


This list of famous people with ADD or Learning Disability has been compiled over the years from various lectures, books, websites and individual communication. Some of these famous people on the list have never had a formal diagnosis. However, from observing them in action, and/or reviewing writings by them and about them, they meet the criteria for ADD or Learning Disability.

I believe very strongly that having ADD or ADHD or a Learning Disability should NEVER hold you back from accomplishing anything that you really want.

Let this list be an inspiration to you:
