As a side note, I really wanted to mention that Rick Riordan honours kids with ADHD and dyslexia. Thus, you’ll find ADHD references in his series of other books (Percy Jackson and the Olympians). The message from the author is clear – it’s not bad to be different! Here’s more about “The Learning-Disabled Hero” from Rick Riordan.
