Gifted children with ADHD do suffer from executive dysfunctions, be they compensated or un-compensated by the giftedness. Their suffering, from the outer as well as from the inner perspective is real, and their development might well be harmed. This chapter described the complicated issues of diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in gifted children. Gifted children deserve, as all others, the best treatment they can get, but in this special group it should be planned for both aspects of their "twice exceptionality".
