Academic Performance and ADHD

Researchers monitored the academic progress of 400 university students and found that those with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) had about a half grade lower GPA than students without the condition. Additionally, students with ADHD were less likely to graduate. The finding suggests that students with ADHD may need greater academic support to help them succeed in school.
