a. Explain the most common symptoms of this disorder. Provide at least two reasons why Parker might not have many friends. b. Parker began attending preschool at age 2. Do you think this contributed to his diagnosis of ADHD? Did his early entry into school make him more or less likely to be diagnosed? Explain your answer. ANS: Answers may include: a. Children with ADHD have excessive activity or fidgeting, inattentiveness, and impulsivity; they do not make friends because they miss subtle social cues and make unintentional social mistakes. b. Because Parker was entered into “formal” school at an early age, he may be more likely to have been diagnosed with ADHD because of being in a structured setting where he must conform to rules and control his behavior for long periods of time. Children who have a difficult time with these tasks may be seen as abnormal compared to their peers. The demands on Parker to control his behavior occurring at an early age may have been one of the major factors contributing to his diagnosis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
