  • to succeed.

  • attention deficit is his biggest problem. Leo gets distracted so easily it happens

  • even when he tries his hardest to focus. he often realizes that he has suddenly

  • zoned out and has spent the last 15 minutes thinking about something

  • entirely different. just the tiniest thing can get him off track. to him it

  • feels like his brain is broken. he is also forgetful books and homework

  • are often left at home and if he doesn't miss an assignment he often loses it

  • somewhere or forgets to turn it in. his grades are terrible and some teachers

  • are beginning to think that he is a lost case.

  • then there is his hyperactivity: when they have to do group work he is

  • restless and has trouble staying focused. staying calm and listening while others

  • speak can completely drain him, making any normal conversation a serious

  • challenge. to him it feels like there is no capacity left in his brain to deal

  • with all the input that needs to be processed.

  • he then feels angry about not being able to follow along. to help cope with his

  • hyperactivity he likes to keep his hands busy all the time.
