I don't have kids with adhd
, but I have taught many, many, many of them during the last 39 year
s. And yes, the things you mention sound very familiar!!!
Many times adhd
is noticed early in school. However, if a child is smart, they will get by with B's and then C's and then finally the subject matter will be such that they can't get by on inherent intelligence (things like common denominators) and their school situation will rapidly spiral downwards.
