Leonardo da Vinci had ADHD

And why that’s important

When I was six, my teacher called my mom to tell her, “Your daughter has the worst case of ADD I have seen in 40 years of teaching.”

She showed my mom a collection of half-finished spelling tests, during which I got bored and started drawing. My school notebook was full of scribbles by three weeks into the school year.

Not only was I ADHD-Primarily Inattentive. I was, and still am, chaotically ADHD-Primarily Inattentive.
