How can you help manage inattentive attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)?

ANSWER

Your child spends much of his time in school, so you’ll need to be in touch with his teacher to keep tabs on how he’s doing in class. Together, you can come up with different ways to help your child. The school can make accommodations to better serve your child’s needs. Talk to the principal.

When a child has the treatment, tools, and support he needs, he’ll be able to focus and accomplish his goals.
