(NBC) - A new study finds ADHD symptoms may affect children's school readiness.

Stanford University researchers looked at five factors: motor and social skills, language, learning style and general knowledge.

They found children with ADHD scored significantly lower in all areas except general knowledge.

Experts say this shows the importance of considering all aspects of child development when determining school readiness.
