This series is based on a clinical encounter in Spanish about attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, ADHD (trastorno de déficit de atención con hiperactividad / TDAH). The original encounter was written in English by a listener, Dr. Craig Horn. Dr. Horn is a pediatrician who serves patients with ADHD. He shared the following with me in an email.
“Philosophically, ADHD can be a beautiful gift of high energy and creativity when developed properly. ADHD is not a disease but simply who we are. I think the medical/psychiatric model of ADHD as a disease state is hurtful.”
We put this series together while studying at the San Pedro Spanish School in Guatemala. My friend Sonja Um-Siri (an interpreter) translated the clinical encounter on ADHD into Spanish with her teacher Francisco González Yojcóm. Then, we recorded the encounter with Francisco, my teacher, Elizabeth Cortez, and Eliza’s daughter, Nicole.
