ADHD symptoms of inattentiveness, impulsivity, hyperactivity and lack of focus put a strain on appropriate social behavior. ADHD students may not notice how their behavior is affecting others and they can find it hard to pick up on social cues.
ADHD students may find it difficult to make and keep friends at school. Other kids at school may find ADHD students tend to go off-topic during conversations; have emotional outbursts; interrupting; trouble sharing and failure to follow through on promises due to forgetfulness.
When ADHD students find their social status diminished by their symptoms they can feel isolated, depressed, and unmotivated in their studies.
