In my personal opinion, the symptoms of ADHD can be more pronounced in a school settings than they might be at home. At least for my son, his symptoms were much more noticeable in a setting where he had to sit still and remain quiet for long periods of time (like at school). At home, the symptoms were there – they just weren’t as noticeable.

My son’s diagnosis included testing that had input from teachers, parents and other caregivers which gave the doctor a more comprehensive look at my son.
