Is it normal for kids with ADHD to struggle with going back to school after summer vacation?

ANSWER

Summer is the time for kids to relax, sleep late, and have fun. No kid wants to trade vacation for the structure and routine of the school year.

Although kids with ADHD can have a hard time getting used to classrooms and homework again, you can take steps to make the transition easier for both of you.
