Famous People with ADHD/AS

History has and will probably look favourably on those in this list. Indeed society owes a great deal to many on this list, leaving us to wander what society would have been like without their personal contribution. This said, we must remember that the vast majority of people who have had ADHD, ASD, Dyslexia and other related conditions will never appear on this list. Like them, most of those who do appear on this list were not popular, were not considered extraordinary during their time, never had a penny to rub together, and have not been scientific geniuses, but wandered if the world would notice they had ever existed. Each name here represents hope, ambition, gifts and above all confirmation that despite their personal struggle through out life, those who have these conditions can and do make a real and fundamental difference to those they come into contact with. They have earned as much right as the rest of society to be accepted, and treated with respect and dignity, and be provided with the high quality of education experienced by their peers.
