Great article- I know a lot of parents struggle with their children’s ADHD. A parent really gets frustrated because many of these children are intelligent, they just can’t focus long enough to finish an assignment. That really becomes a problem as the child ages because children in the later elementary grades are expected to perform at a certain level independently.
A child in my daughter’s class has ADHD and she is struggling in almost all of her subjects. The poor girl repeated third grade once and is currently failing a second time. It is really sad. She just can not focus on the assignments in class and almost never finishes them. I know that this disorder like many others mentioned in the article really devastates parents but at least we are learning more about the disorder.
