The Power of Different: Link Between Disorder and Genius
Millions of people suffer from learning disabilities, dyslexia, ADHD, anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and autism.

While we label these conditions as "disabilities," many individuals with deficits in certain areas of the brain possess great talents. In fact, the very conditions that cause people to experience difficulties in school, social situations, at home, or at work are also linked to creative, artistic, and advanced cognitive abilities.

Gail Saltz, MD, author of The Power of Different: The Link Between Disorder and Genius, joins Dr. Friedman to share an inspiring connection of how the source of our struggles can be the origin of our greatest strengths.
