this summer im taking a special education course, and one of my last assignments is an IEP. i was given a case study and have to diagnose, make goals, and basically do everything for the IEP. the boy in my case study definitely has ADHD, but im not sure if he also has some learning disabilities.
my question is, if your child has ADHD does it cause them difficulties with reading, writing, and/or math? or do they simply have difficulty paying attention and dealing with distractions?
my textbook is crap and only mentions that its common for kids w/ ADHD to also have learning disabilities, but it doesnt mention any actual characteristics of both together. thanks!

But, last year he learned cursive writing, and it is no longer a fight. He actually enjoys cursive, and his writing is beautiful. Here's an example, I took it at the Spring parent/teacher conference:
