Re: Questionnaire for parents of children with ADHD

I filled out the questionaire and sent it to the OP via private message.
Probably should point out that I'm the gramma, not the actual parent.
Although I'm helping my divorced daughter raise her two children, we
all live together.

a. Explain
Unmediated, he will continue to have low self esteem and social problems. Being a male there is continued risk of negative behaviors combined with his impulsivity and poor judgment will result in very difficult teen years and potential catastrophic results. Being identified as “gifted” places him in the highest risk group for teen suicide and combined with the social difficulties of ADHD, the risks are extreme. If he follows his sister’s lead, he will just drop out of high school and become a hermit that only interacts with her direct family and her online gaming friends with no real future direction and little self motivation.
