In brief: Seek assistance
Attention difficulties are quite common and most obvious during school years.
There are many ways in which to treat attention problems, but an accurate diagnosis is the 1st step. Seek the assistance of a school counselor/advisor, psychologist, family physician, internist, or psychiatrist who has experience in attention disorders. If in college, the disability resource center is another option.
