Giftedness and ADHD

Some children who have ADHD are also intellectually gifted.

These children often have specific challenges with learning and social interactions that other gifted children may not experience.

It is important that gifted children who have ADHD are provided with learning opportunities that are interesting and challenging for them.  It is also important that they have support for their ADHD as well, as ADHD symptoms can make learning and school challenging for these children, despite their high intelligence.
