A new study is warning parents that students with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder may have a more difficult time finishing high school on time, if they graduate at all.

Researchers at UC Davis found that nearly one-third of students with ADHD go on to either drop out of high school or delay graduation.

That compares to 15 percent of unaffected teens who drop out.

Experts say it is important not to let ADHD go untreated in order to improve students' performance and achievements.
