I do tell the coach, if she has someone besides me. For example, DD is in All Stars right now, and the coach is aware of her ADHD. She is Innattentive, so she tends to wander, and needs to be "brought back into the game". She does well with someone just calling her name. DD is not on meds for the summer, so I felt it was necessary for the coach to know.

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
