Dr. Jerome Schultz, a clinical neuropsychologist and expert on ADHD/Learning Disorders, discusses the impact of chronic stress on children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and/or learning disabilities. Stress can contribute to learning and behavioral difficulties in children at school and home. While treatment and school assistance can help, even the best efforts of parents, teachers or therapists may not be enough. Few adults comprehend how often children with ADHD and/or LD experience or anticipate failure and embarrassment and how this puts them in a chronic state of stress that impedes effective learning. This is the first part of a 2-part series.
