I am asking because I would like to compare my daughter's grades with other kids who have ADHD. I know that it is hard for her to study as long as any other kid after school but she really tries and I am proud of her. She mostly has all B's and sometimes she will bring home an A or C. Before we knew about the ADHD, she would bring home D's and sometimes F's. She is in the 3rd grade.Answer Question

Thank you butterfly 1108, I don't know about other kids with ADD or ADHD, but my daughter takes A LOT of our time. We have changed so many things to help her. She takes Focalin XR (the lowest dose) but I only give it to her on school days to help her focus in class. That's probably why we haven't had to up her dose because she doesn't use it every single day. It's really tempting to use it when she's at home acting super hyper and I want a break....lol Hubby and I encourage her 24/7. We are constantly telling her that she's doing well, even if she's just pushing the buggie for me at the store. Also we set a homework/study time for her of 5:30 everyday. She makes it home around 4:00. That way she knows that when 5:30 comes she can stop and go play. That's great because it doesn't take up all of our evening trying to help her study.

As a teacher I can say that kids with ADHD have grades ranging from As to Fs. There are tons of factors other than ADHD that contribute to grades. It's sounds like her grades have improved quite a bit. Good Job!
