When your child is diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or other learning disabilities, it can be pretty tough to take. But here's the silver lining -- tons of wildly successful people, including well-known Hollywood celebs have battled behavior issues and learning disabilities, only to come out on top! Here are 14 celebrities who have managed to overcome ADHD, obsessive-compulsive disorder or dyslexia.

Will Smith

The two-time Oscar nominee told Rolling Stone that as a child he was “the fun one who had trouble paying attention… I was a ‘B’ student who should’ve been getting A’s… Today they’d diagnose me as a child with ADHD.” Even if that was the case, he hasn’t let his focus issues interfere with his life. In addition to being extremely successful as an actor, rapper and producer, he’s also a devoted family man with three children, including Jaden and Willow Smith, who act and rap, just like their dad.
