Dyslexia Misdiagnosed as ADHD
Imagine being 16 years old and having no idea how many letters there are in the alphabet. Dylan Smith grew up in New Hampshire in poverty after being adopted from Russia by a family who also adopted his twin brother.
Dylan Smith was wrongly diagnosed with ADHD, and all his teachers and doctors told him and his mother that he had ADHD. They said he needed to be medicated with Ridellan and Concerta to help him get by in school. Dylan did everything he could to prove them wrong, studying harder than anyone else and working twice as hard to learn the alphabet.
Dylan had to learn how to make the best of his current situation by himself and get by. He decided not to go to college because Smith realized he was using all the tools, lessons, and experience he gained from overcoming his misdiagnosis. Therefore, Dylan transferred everything he learned into an internship and created a brand to help change the game for those who need it most. Consequently, today Dylan is seen as a successful leader who advocates for others!
