My son is realizing that he is slightly different from other children, even though I don't feel that he is and I never let him use his learning disability as an excuse.

I realized this when he went to see Percy Jackson and it was mentioned he had ADHD.. my son was thrilled to know some one else was like him!

Yup, my boys know, mostly because they are on meds, but they are old enough now they know there is something different about them.

My son knows because he is medicated and we have open conversations about it. I tell him that yes he is different, but he is special and loved and nothing will ever change that. I want him to know that it isn't his fault either, that it isn't something he did or that we did to make him that way. He understands and has accepted his differences. He actually has other friends who are ADHD so that has never been a problem.
