Re: Do tuition centres still continue to run P6 class afterP

Re: All About ADHD : Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorde

I'd say it's independent of whether one has ADHD or not. If the interest is there, they can learn it. I have a close relative with ADHD, and he's learned to play the ukelele and violin because of his interest in music.
