I suspect that my cousin has ADD/ADHD because he struggles when it comes to reading. He''s able to a text once but if I ask him to read the same text, it''s difficult for him

Please advise.

Dear Tebogo,

A difficulty with reading could be attributable to many things, not just ADHD.

Please visit an educational psychologist or remedial therapist in your area who will be able to identify the root cause of the reading difficulty and provide advice on forms of remediation.

Best wishes,
