Symptoms and Outcomes of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), is a behavior pattern seen as the lack of ability to stay on task, with trouble in controlling emotions and staying still, when compared with the general population. This behavior can hinder your teenager’s ability to finish her work, and function successfully in society.
If your troubled teen is easily sidetracked, has poor organizational skills or jumps from one unfinished assignment to another, she may well be facing the problems of Attention Deficit Disorder.
Precise causes of ADD (also Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, or ADHD) are unknown but studies show some links with heredity, nutrition, and environment.
Because it’s so easy for teens with ADD or ADHD to be distracted, a large percentage fail to finish high school, or don’t get the kind of grades needed to go on to a good college. While your girl may not completely outgrow her symptoms, she can certainly learn strategies for success, even as a teenager.
