Detecting the ADHD Student in Middle School

(Adjusting to Middle School) - Hitting the wall
If behavior is not a problem, kids with ADHD may go undiagnosed for years, relying on memory and intelligence to get by in school. Eventually they "hit the wall" and these skills no longer work. Rapidly declining grades, failure to turn in assignments or poor organizatonal skills all signal a need for a closer look, and maybe an evaluation for ADHD or a learning disability.
