Child & Adolescent ADHD

Children with ADHD may be difficulties at home and in the classroom. Children with ADHD may find it difficult to learn social rules easily or to understand social cues. This can affect how they make friends, or don't make friends. Turn taking can be problematic, and interrupting other children when talking can make developing friendships difficult.

If ADHD is untreated there can be very serious consequences in a person's academic, social and family life. School years are particularly difficult for children with ADHD as they find it difficult to conform to the restraints of the classroom, often standing up or looking out of the window . Their behaviour can be very frustrating for parents and teachers and other children.
