Attention Deficit [Hyperactivity] Disorder

How does AD[H]D affect Learning?

Attention Span: A person may be able to sit still, but not be focused and as such may miss important points.

Staying on task: Repetitive tasks tend to be boring, and if low priority generally do not get completed unless a person enjoys them.

Short-term memory: There maybe issues where a person has difficulty remembering and recalling new knowledge and skills. A person may also forget to make notes or write things down.
