is there any correlation between adhd & intelligence ?

Dr. Cornelia Franz
Specializes in Pediatrics
Maybe: All the adhd children I have cared for are very bright. They can get by for a long time on their mental abilities...Which is why add/adhd often isnt diagnosed til 4th 7th or 10 th grades when their intellgence can no longer compensate for the amount of work that needs to be done..Also 1/3 of gifted children have add/adhd and /or allergies. So there is correlation...
Dr. Oscar Novick
Pediatrics 58 years experience
Intelligence: People with adhd are usually of normal, or increased inteeigence.
