Education

Positive peer relationships are a very important part of children’s development and good friendships provide a number of positive functions for children. Unfortunately, many children with ADHD struggle to develop and maintain close friendships and this study provides some interesting new information on this issue. Attached is a review of this study by Dr. David Rabiner.
