Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders of childhood. Without early identification, treatment and support, children with ADHD can have significant impairments in school, home, and other aspects of life including interpersonal and social skills. For children from racial and ethnic minority groups with ADHD, barriers to ADHD diagnosis and treatment can place them at greater risk of poor health and educational outcomes than their white peers. Teachers play a critical role in understanding these disparities and the impact of ADHD on learning and academic performance of all children.
