i think its just considered a minor learning disability.
Oh and i have it so i would know =)
I don't need a classroom helper. I actually learn things FASTER cuz my brain works really fast. I read super fast, write fast, talk fast, and usually absorb the subject fast. My main problem is with stuff like math or some science classes like chemistry where you really have to focus, i tend to drift off into the most random things.
All you have to do mostly is make sure your organized. Write your assignments down in an agenda every day. Do your homework in the same time and place everyday. Also, its a PROVEN fact that smelling peppermint helps you focus, so i just usually pop a tic tac in my mouth before each class.
Also, its another proven fact that on average, people with adhd have higher IQ's. I took a certified IQ test and mine was 120 =). So even though sometimes school can be a struggle, i know that i'm really smart.
