    ADHD in High School

    Help! We are on our 3rd school now (6th through 9th) where my child starts out with a full group of friends. Within 3 weeks she is ostracized. She isn’t invited to parties and kids just walk past her in the hallways. I am not there to see what she is doing but clearly know now that it has to be her. I can’t sleep, I can’t think, I am obsessed with figuring this out for her and driving her crazy in the meantime. Does any other mom have this issue and how are you dealing with the heartbreak? I am so frightened that the wrong group will show her attention and then she will be in a downward spiral. I feel as if this is making me crazy and completely heartbroken. I must say that she was diagnosed with ADHD 3 years ago and clearly know this is a result of her diagnosis. I just want to know how we can help her.

    High school can be a tough time no matter if she has ADHD or not,
    Personally what I can suggest you to do is to schedule a meeting with the school so they can help you follow up and investigate whats going on as a first step

    Also make sure to let your daughter know that is not her fault and that people can be mean, and if you know as a fact she have attitudes problems don't put blame on her and try to research with her what happens before their friends stop talking with them, look for things if they get into a argument or stuff like that and try to make her feel supported.

    Does she take ADHD medicine? Try asking teachers if your child should have an IEP and you can also ask teachers to help your kid at school.
