Ben Glenn was diagnosed with Dyslexia and other Learning Disabilities while in grade school. As an adult he also learned that he has ADHD and suddenly everything about his life made perfect sense.
Dropping out of college to pursue a love of art and speaking, Ben has been on the road, full-time since 1995, traveling to every part of the United States as well as to more remote places like China and Australia. He blames his ADHD...but he's secretly happy about it.
You see, Ben belongs to an ever-growing group of individuals, who took their disability turned it upside down and discovered that they have ALL kinds of abilities that "normal" people just don't have.
Years of living with and studying ADHD have brought Ben to the firm conclusion that ADHD impairs a person's life the most when that person is trapped in an ADHD-unfriendly environment or does not possess the information they need in order to deal with their symptoms in the right way. Obviously, it may be a long time before much changes about the way typical schools operate, or the way a corporation expects their employees to behave, but meantime, Ben is sharing everything he has learned about ADHD with anyone who will listen. And lots of people are listening!
Ben's ADHD-adventure filled messages of inspiration and hope are both entertaining and educational. Youth relate to his struggles for acceptance in school, parents and teachers get an insider's perspective on what it's like to grow up "different", "special". Over the years, Ben has spoken to thousands of people honing his ability to take complex, emotionally-charged subjects and give his audience a fresh, easy-to-digest perspective that produces real change in attitudes, goals and motivations.
Finally, as much as Ben loves being a speaker and performing artist, he loves being a husband and father more. Married for over thirteen years, he, his wife and two daughters live in a great little city called Indianapolis.
