A List of Famous People with ADHD

By Thursday 21 March 2024Health, The Web, Thinking

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a neurological condition where the brain is structured differently to that of other people. According to ADHD UK people with ADHD:

People with ADHD show a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity–impulsivity that interferes with day-to-day functioning and/or development.

Thanks to better understanding of this neurodiverse condition and increased public awareness, there has been an increase in the number of people globally diagnosed with ADHD. I’ve written about ADHD in my latest book Ways The Human Body Can Go Wrong.

But which famous people have ADHD? That’s what I cover in this post. I should start by saying that this list has been compiled by research on the internet, so can’t be seen as fully accurate. But hopefully, it demonstrates to people with ADHD that they are not alone and that ADHD won’t stop them from achieving their dreams. They might just have to go about it in a different way than non-neurodiverse people.
