Flipping ADHD On Its Head | How to Turn Your Child’s “Disability” into Their Greatest Strength
In Flipping ADHD On Its Head, Dr. Jim Poole introduces and explores a holistic, integrated, and empowering approach to identifying and promoting the strengths of ADHD children. Rather than framing ADHD as a disability, Dr. Jim challenges the current stigma and encourages readers to see it as a gift, even if it comes with a set of real challenges.
Instead of “fixing” ADHD, Dr. Jim will lead readers on a highly practical journey to leverage the unique strengths of ADHD through effective parenting strategies, study skills, nutrition, exercise, sleep, medication, and more.
With a foreword by Edward Hallowell, MD, Flipping ADHD On Its Head is a comprehensive approach that is positive and uplifting and empowers parents to be proud of their FastBraiin child.

About Dr. Jim Poole, MD
Jim Poole, MD, FAAP, founded FastBraiin in 2010 on the premise that individuals with ADHD have unique strengths in athletics, business, engineering, medicine, sales, the arts, and the classroom—wherever a quick and adaptable brain shines.
Dr. Jim’s understanding of ADHD and the method of FastBraiin is the culmination of over 40 years of professional experience—listening to, learning from, and caring for ADHD children, youth, and adults. Dr. Jim graduated from Clemson University and the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina, completed his pediatric residency at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, Texas, served as Chief of Pediatrics at the Army hospital in Stuttgart, Germany, and founded Growing Child Pediatrics in Raleigh, North Carolina. Today, Growing Child Pediatrics is an affiliate of Duke Health and one of the largest pediatric practices in North Carolina.
The philosophy of FastBraiin was planted early in Dr. Jim’s life as he watched his father and fellow pediatrician, Dr. Frank Poole, care for patients and was taught to value each and every person, regardless of their background or socioeconomic status. This philosophy was also developed through countless experiences within his own marriage and family, practicing as a physician, playing sports, learning how to learn, reading and more reading, enjoy-ing thoughtful and sometimes tearful conversations with patients, conversing with professionals who challenged and energized him, and overcoming and thriving with his own ADHD (and an auditory learning disability).
FastBraiin has over 10,000 success stories and counting - helping children and adolescents move from Cs, Ds, and Fs to A/B honor roll and adults improve their productivity and relationships at home and in the workplace.
As the founder of FastBraiin, Dr. Jim says:
“I have a deep desire to help children, adolescents, families, and adults navigate the confusing and sometimes hopeless world of ADHD. For me, flipping my thoughts and understanding about ADHD has made ALL the difference—as a husband, father, physician, and friend. Those of us who are FastBraiin do not need to blend in with the rest of the world. We need to embrace our FastBraiin by developing our strengths, being grateful and excited about who we are, and sharing our gift with the world!”
