Does your ADHD Child have Difficulty Making and Keeping Friends?


One concern that we often hear from parents when it comes to their ADHD child is the fact that they seem to have difficulty making and keeping friends.

This is not uncommon – for a number of potential reasons, children with ADHD often experience difficulties in their relationships with peers. As a parent this can be heartbreaking to witness, particularly because it often feels out of your control to help.

What you can control, however, is your understanding of the connection between your child’s ADHD symptoms and their relationships with others. Once you better understand what’s getting in the way, you’ll be able to better target specific social skills that may help your child move forward.
