My teenage sister has ADHD, the smptoms where when she went to kindergarten - she got upset when she was slower doing school work- directions have to be repeated to her and she is given extra time on tests if she needs it. She would get frustrated and throw books down and would cry cause she would get confused about school papers/ like I said directions have to be repeated. Now that she is older she has been on the honor roll 6 times- she is a A/B student going inot her school in Sept. She is in chorus and drama and was on the school paper. She still takes a long time with homework, but she gets it done and handed in on time. She takes ritalin- with out it she is more apt to have outbursts where she says inappropriate things- not anything real bad, just lack of judgement and more hyper-talkitive. It helps her in school be more focused. She is disorganized, but somehow finds everything. My Mom is dedicated.
