ADHD combined with learning differences often results in social anxiety

It is very common for boys who have processing difficulties to have social anxiety because they feel like they can’t keep up in conversations. Having ADHD on top of learning differences add another layer of complexity to this.

Many boys with processing difficulties who experience social anxiety are mistakenly placed into social skills groups that do not address social anxiety. Social is anxiety and social learning challenges are two different things. During group this week I gave the guys “homework” which was was to make small talk with someone at their lunch table about the eagles game.

If you’re not sure if your son has social anxiety, social learning challenges or both please set up an appointment so we can figure help him be socially successful.
