Ages 6-10: Rehearsing Lifetime Skills
It's during the elementary school years that children learn to take turns, play by the rules, handle frustration, failures and more. These skills carry over to high school and beyond so this time is especially critical for children with ADHD to not fall behind their peers in this domain because it can set the stage for failure in the future.
ADHD kids with lower frustration tolerances and who have difficulty staying on task can often find themselves excluded from team sports and cooperative board games that can help them build these critical social skills. Parents can help by taking the place of peers and engaging their children in games that will help them develop more socially acceptable behaviors.
