The answer to that question is a resounding NO!

Many kids with ADHD do just fine in school. Some even excel, graduating at the top of their class.

Where the difference really shows is in HOW they get those grades. Struggling for many hours, taking longer than the others to learn something is very common for people with ADHD. We often have to work twice as hard just to keep up.

Procrastinating and finishing assignments at the very last minute is also common. I was famous for it and still do things that way every day.

If you suspect ADHD in the child you are talking about you should see about getting some tests done.  Struggling that hard to learn is an indication that something is wrong, and it’s no fun to have to spend 3 or 4 hours just trying to get through one page.
