stage that kids go to school to learn
negative characteristics develop when children do not pass stage
do good in school and you do good in life What does this mean for students with ADHD? if teachers are not providing for their students then they are at a disadvantage to pass this stage How does this explain my results? people don't see, in their everyday lives, people with ADHD in stereotypical successful positions
therefore they must not be attaining the necessary skills, in school, to be successful 32.3% of students with ADHD drop out of highschool
15% of students without ADHD
28% students with ADHD repeat grades
