    ADHD: Helping Your Child Get the Most From School

    Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may have difficulty in school, because their symptoms—inattention, impulsiveness, and hyperactivity—get in the way of learning.

    Success in school is important for the development of healthy self-esteem and confidence.

    You can help your child succeed in school by:

    • Working with teachers and other school personnel.
    • Educating yourself about ADHD.
    • Helping your child control his or her symptoms.
