Bullying at School: Is Your ADHD Kid a Victim?

There is an excellent article in a recent issue of ADDitude Magazine about this. Here is an excerpt:

Is Your ADHD Child Being Bullied at School?

Children with ADHD may believe they bring bullying on themselves with their inappropriate behavior, or that there is nothing they — or their parents — can do about it. Even if your child knows that she can safely confide in you and her teachers, she may be hesitant to do so.

ADHD kids have an “out of sight, out of mind” approach to solving problems, so it may help to gently question your child about the social scene at school. Casually ask her who she is friendly with — and who she’s not — and if she’s happy with her social life at school. Your child may not even be aware that she is being targeted until you ask the questions that reveal it.

If you suspect that your child is the target of bullying, ask her teachers whether your child’s social skills are contributing to any difficulties she may be having.
