Every year there are students who want to take an AP or honors course but feel as though they cannot due to their learning disability. ADHD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, is one of the most common disabilities and kids who have ADHD tend to also have other learning impairments, such as dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia. Most often when ADHD is discussed, it is looked at as if it is only hyperactive kids who do not want to work. When side effects are brought up, you only see the problems with math or reading, never with writing which is only seen as a common problem anyone could have. We enlightened teachers and helped students to understand what ADHD is through informative videos and a club/elective.
