This is where a child:
Low self-esteem as children don't want to play with them
Isolation because friends seem not to be accommodating and lose interest/patience
Educational success can be impacted as they don't hear lessons or understand instructions
The child often:
socially clumsy as they speak without thinking
barge into games so spoils other peole's fun
have mood swings and be volatile
lash out when frustrated
embarrass parents or hurt them with their words and actions especially in company
underachieve at school because they rush or don't listen to the whole question
The child often:
Forgets rules of a game and makes silly mistakes so other children avoid them
Exasperates parents when they do not do as told
Inattention at school could lead to inability to grasp handwriting or doing structured work
However, there is evidence to suggest that early diagnosis and management of the condition may help avoid long term consequences. The main challenge for professionals is to diagnose, treat and support the children and families.
