While ADHD is not a learning disability it can significantly impact a student’s ability to learn and impair academic achievement. On average, children with ADHD have problems completing assignments, receive lower grades in academic subjects, and score lower on standardized tests. Over half of children with ADHD who are taught in general classrooms fail at least one grade by adolescence and over 1/3 will not finish high school. This 1-hour webinar is designed to help parents understand the impact ADHD has on learning and discuss the key to assisting their children to find success at school.
