Michael Phelps, the Olympic swimmer – who plans to win 8 Gold Medals at the Beijing Olympics – has ADHD.
He was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 9 years old. He used a combination of medication and behavioral therapy. After a few years, he was able to manage his ADHD without the medication.

I wish Michael the best for the Olympics, and I appreciate his and his family’s openness about his condition. I think this will help a lot of people with ADHD to realize that they can succeed with their ADD or ADHD.
