My best friend has ADD, and speaks perfect English and excellent French. I should also mention that she came to this country when she was 6 months old with her parents, 2 older siblings, and her teddy bear, Mr. Bear.

One thing I kind of wonder about, though. A lot of LD's are either language-based or interfere with language in some way, like auditory processing disorders, for example. Since a high percentage of ADDers have LD's as well, I wonder if this might be the source of the idea that ADDers have difficulty with languages?

Just tell your doctor what's going on. That's what they're there for, and I'm sure they've heard it all, your not alone in what's going on. -- jazzper
