At age ten, our daughter was diagnosed as having ADHD. She is not hyperactive, loud, or intrusive like her brother, and so, by comparison, did not attract attention the way he did. Over the years, teachers suggested she had some learning problems, because her grades, although not bad, did not seem to reflect her level of intelligence and understanding of the material. The teachers could not be specific about what the problem was, and we thought she was not as interested in the material as she needed to be to earn better grades. My daughter had more insight than her teachers or her parents. When I would talk about how distractible her brother was, she would often interject, "I'm distractible too." And I would say, "No, you're not." Compared with her brother, she seemed okay to me. Everyone is entitled to some denial.
