In 2002, PBS aired a 90-minute story called "MisUnderstood Minds". It is a documentary about kids that struggle with learning disabilities. It discusses some of their struggles, successes and failures. It is worth the time to watch. The information shared in this video is still relevant, even 15 years later.
PBS also created a companion site to the publication: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/misunderstoodminds/intro.html
Throughout the site there are some very interesting "Try It Yourself" links. The links provide you with a very eye-opening, insightful look into what some of our kids struggle with every single day. They give you a great look into what an individual who struggles with focus and attention sees and/or hears when they are faced with different situations.
Please check out the webpage and "Try It Yourself" for some great insight.
