ADHD in adults
My son was diagnosed with ADHD as a child. (now 23) Was assessed by a educational phsychologist and found to be very intelligent. However he battled through school and couldn't pass grade 10. He battles to keep a job, is very anti authority and is agressive in his speech and attitude. His room is a pigsty and he Is never wrong and now has become involved in drugs. He does not think there is anything wrong with him. Please help!!!!!
