A new study shows that too many students with ADHD are not receiving the school services they need to be successful with their academic studies. The executive functioning demands only become greater as they progress through middle school, high school and on to college and these services can make a tremendous differences in how these student fare.
As children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) grow older and enter adolescence, some of the outward signs of their condition may decrease. Although they may be less active and have more control over impulsive behavior, many middle school and high school students continue to experience problems with focus and attention in the classroom. Issues related to poor concentration and distractibility may intensify, affecting their grades and their ability to learn. Without intervention, many teenagers with ADHD develop poor self-esteem, difficulties in relationships and substance abuse problems.
