Moreover, such children get frustrated very easily and show short temperament, such children lack concentration in the class and therefore offer poor academic performance. In sports, they display impatience and cannot wait for their turn and never go with the rules. instead, they have their ways. Such children are more prone to injuries and accidents (ADHD).
. . . . . . . . . . . ADHD individuals display co-morbid issues as around 30-50% individuals have the oppositional defiant disorder (ODD), as well as they, say conduct disorder (CD) as well as 20-30% ADHD cases show signs of anxiety. In comparison, 11 to 22% of ADHD individuals display bipolar disorder (Biederman, 1991).

Neuroimaging of ADHD cases display diminished prefrontal cortex. thereby, they lack in executing prefrontal functions and therefore, they have reduced working memory (Hill, 2002). Schachar et al., (2000) defined ADHD as “a disorder of dysregulation of thoughts and actions associated with poor inhibitory control. The incidence of ADHD is more prevalent in boys as compared to girls. It shows the sign of inheritance as it runs in the family (ADHD). ADHD individuals display incapability in their reading, writing and mathematical skills. On the other hand, if ADHD is associated with CD, then the condition may worsen further as the issues are not confined to academics. Instead, they are associated with offending or disposition of criminal temperament (Daley, 2010).
. . . . . . . . . . . According to Daley et al., (2010), there exists a correlation between academic performance as well as executive functioning. Children with ADHD, along with low EFs, display poor performance in their academics in contrast to the children with ADHD and adequate executive functioning. When the results were compared with controls, then low EF does not find any co-relation with the academic accomplishments, suggesting that prevailing symptoms of ADHD and essential cognitive shortfalls and not co-morbid behaviour predicaments are responsible for academic mutilation.
. . . . . . . . . . . Academic intervention suggests that academic performance does not appear to be associated with co-morbid behaviour issues or troublesome/ hyperactive symptoms. Coordination is required between the ADHD child, teacher, parents and the care providers. . Research is being conducted across the globe and states that it is desired that the working memory enhancement is expected, which require parent’s attention and persuasion (Daley, 2010).
