ADHD in Boys
Doesn't socially respond to adults
My nine-year-old great grandson with ADHD has lived with us for four years. He gets a lot of extra help at school and has a tutor on Saturdays. I work at home with him each day. He came with Delayed Development so is slow in making progress. He has good friends his own age. He is in Cub Scouts. He has a problem with socially relating to adults. When people speak to him in the neighborhood or church, he barely responds, if at all. I tell him to at least wave his hand and smile, if he can’t say anything. Any other suggestions? Thank you.
