ADHD is a behavioral disorder that affects many people in the United States. Both children and adults alike can be diagnosed with ADHD, a prognosis that has many implications, especially for school-age children. Due to the different ways that ADHD manifests itself, both school performance and socialization can be impacted.
When a child is diagnosed with ADHD, it can manifest itself with inattentiveness, hyperactivity, or a combination of both. This can negatively impact a child’s school experience, causing the child to experience difficulty with academic performance, as well as making friends.
