Parents of ADHD Children

social skills

My 6 yr old has ADHD. He is an only child. He has always struggled with making friends because most of the time at home he plays independent. At school he has come a long way with sharing and being a good friend.  He constantly asks for new friends and play dates.

I don’t have many friends with kids for him to socialize with.

Is there a separate forum to set up play dates?  I am so concerned that he will become a loner.


Hi whitaker10! has some great articles on helping your child learn social skills. Here are a few that might be helpful to you:
