ADHD is not a learning disability, even so, it greatly impacts how a child performs in school. Your child might forget to do homework or do the homework and forget to hand it in. He might miss what the teacher is saying because he is distracted or daydreaming. He might know the work when reviewing for the test but completely blank out when it comes time to put it on paper. As parents, it is frustrating to watch your child try so hard and still struggle. It is even more frustrating for your child.
