Children with ADHD often have difficulty interacting socially with others due to their inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity. As a result, they may experience problems developing relationships and social rejection which may lead to emotional pain and suffering. The Theory of Mind (TOM) incorporates the idea that individuals have their own perspective, ideas, thoughts, and behaviors. TOM proposes that in children with ADHD, and other behavior challenges, they do not have the ability to understand, relate to, or interact with other perspectives, thoughts, ideas, or behaviors.
However, with proper guidance and development, children have the ability to improve their social skills. With improved social skills, children are able to make and keep friends more easily and improve other interpersonal relationships such as with family and teachers.
