    1. Social narrative is a learning tool designed for a person with disability (e.g. Autism and Asperger syndrome) that teaches them how to do something new. It is referred to as a story or a written explanation that tells the learner not only what to do but also what the situation is, with the goal of addressing the challenge of learners finding social situations confusing.[2]

    1. ADD is het enige type dat vooral last heeft van de symptomen van onoplettendheid. Je concentreren en het organiseren van taken kan bijvoorbeeld moeilijk zijn. Ook overprikkeling is een veelvoorkomende klacht.

      Het verschil met ADHD

    1. Er zijn kinderen die voldoen aan het stereotype ADHD'er: ze zijn luid, energiek en hebben moeite zich te concentreren. Maar er zijn ook vormen van ADHD waarbij het kind veel dagdroomt of juist hypergefocust is en alles om zich heen vergeet als die ergens mee bezig is. “Er zijn grote individuele verschillen, op alle niveaus die we meten”, concludeert Durston. Bovendien hebben veel kinderen met autisme ook moeite zich te concentreren. Dus concentratieproblemen zijn geen kenmerk van ADHD.

      Interessant onderzoek uit 2018, Durston legt in video onder andere uit dat [[ADHD]] niet alleen iets biologisch is wat in de hersens afspeelt. Maar onderdeel is van menselijk gedrag

    1. If ADHD is not a disorder, but a mismatch with a human environment, then suddenly it’s not a medical issue. It’s an issue for educational reform.

    1. In particular, the connection between overexcitability and twice-exceptionality (i.e., the experience of being both intellectually gifted and experiencing a disability such as ADHD or anxiety, among many others, often abbreviated as 2e) has not been explored adequately by anyone, especially as it exists in adults.  And since it’s in adults and adolescents that we see the dynamisms, the subject of overexcitability in 2e adults is a subject that is ripe for research that could have significant positive impact on many people’s lives.
    1. The most evident aspect of developmental potential is overexcitability (OE), a heightened physiological experience of stimuli resulting from increased neuronal sensitivities. The greater the OE, the more intense are the day-to-day experiences of life. Dąbrowski outlined five forms of OE: psychomotor, sensual, imaginational, intellectual, and emotional. These overexcitabilities, especially the latter three, often cause a person to experience daily life more intensely and to feel the extremes of the joys and sorrows of life profoundly. Dąbrowski studied human exemplars and found that heightened overexcitability was a key part of their developmental and life experience. These people are steered and driven by their value "rudder", their sense of emotional OE. Combined with imaginational and intellectual OE, these people have a powerful perception of the world

      Extremely prominent traits of AD(H)D are described in the overexcitabilities.

    1. I was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) since 2004. Neither my ASD and ADHD are as much of an impact on me now than it was several years ago, but I still carry some of the symptoms of it (Stuttering, repetitive movements, etc.), none of it being life threatening of course.

      I'm glad you don't let your disorders affect you. That you have managed to look past them nearly all together. I can relate to you in a way due to me having ADHD and Tourette's Syndrome (TS). Being able to look past the syndrome you have and not let it affect you and keep you from enjoying you're everyday life.
