Absolutely, I say this from both personal experience as an adult with ADHD, parent, and professional.

Without the label, there is a point where the frustration is real and children know that they are different.

Understanding the disorder communicates a lot of things… I am not broken, I just have a challenge that also has some perks. There is hope. There is a gameplan. There are others out there like me.
