Not all children with ADHD have social and/or emotional challenges. Children with ADHD generally exhibit a constellation of characteristics that may interfere with successful social development. Kids with ADHD have trouble paying attention, are easily distracted by external stimulation, and can be behaviorally impulsive. They can also have difficulty reading the social signals of their peers which may lead to being perceived as insensitive or provocative.
ADHD children have trouble learning social skills and self-regulation on their own – they need help learning and practicing skills. Group therapy has been found to be highly effective in helping parents and ADHD children develop necessary skills to manage ADHD symptoms.
