Different allergies – and complications associated with them – can impact kids in different ways while in the classroom. When not correctly diagnosed as allergy, some label these behaviors as ADHD, dyslexia, and a variety of others. With allergy can come decreased productivity, inability to focus, missed class time and poor grades, which is where the “misdiagnosis” can occur. Allergic rhinitis symptoms can cause severe distraction during class hours. Uncontrolled allergy symptoms at night can lead to daytime fatigue. Treating the cause of the allergy can reduce symptoms and increase productivity, attendance, and overall confidence at school.
