What do I do if my child still struggles in school despite medication?

Check into learning disabilities

If your child struggles in school despite medications and efforts on your part and hers, it may be due to a disability beyond ADD ADHD, such as dyslexia. Dyslexia and ADD ADHD do have very similar symptoms. In fact most dyslexic children go undiagnosed. Most children that have dyslexia also have ADD ADHD. It is best to have an educational psychologist determine if your child has ADD ADHD, dyslexia or another unseen problem. Having that done will save alot of time and frustration for everyone. Especially your child.
