So my DS8 is grade accelerated and in an HG classroom. He also has ADHD. He struggles (relatively) with getting his thoughts on paper and finds long assignments that are not broken down difficult. He just got assigned one of those and even though they worked on it in class for 2 weeks, he did not finish. The teacher let him bring it home where he still struggled until we helped him piece it out. Anyway, part of the assignment was to reflect on the book he was reading and one his reflections was:

"Percy has ADHD and dyslexia. Even though those are disabilities they are also advantages. I think this is part of the author's message. I think the theme is you are more powerful than you think you are."

I thought it was a nice theme and a nice message. I am very proud of how powerful my DS thinks he is.
