A few seconds. That's all it takes for his contagious smile to bring a smirk to your face. Carlos was thinking back to when he got to play some football a few days ago. "Took out some aggression," the 18-year old says.

He has been at Centennial for seven years. During that time, Carlos has learned to control the anger that was his ticket out of his community middle school. With a quieter temper, other opportunities start falling into place. "The teachers are trying to help me learn masonry," Carlos says.

ADHD and Adulthood

Aug 1 2010 - 10:00am

Few people realize Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is incurable. The disorder can be managed, but it persists with people throughout their lifetime. Studies estimate that more then 4 percent of the adult population lives with ADHD.

The disorder has plagued adults during some of their most productive years. Michael Phelps became history’s most decorated Olympian, Ty Pennington continues to be the world’s greatest home makeover extraordinaire and Albert Einstein postulated his Special Theory of Relativity, all while living with the disorder.
