Case Scenario 1
Jeremy is an eight year old boy that is experiencing problems at home and at
school. While at home, his mother often complains that he is very messy,
disorganized, and is frequently interrupting others. At school, his teachers
report that he is often distracted, fidgety, restless, and frequently losing his
work or leaving it incomplete. Jeremy’s mother feels that his behavior is
getting in the way of his school success and worries about his lack of friends.
Jeremy does not get along well with his peers because they get annoyed with his
erratic and unpredictable behavior, along with his inability to stay focused
during any type of game. It appears that Jeremy could be struggling with
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
