ADD/ADHD and anxiety

I have 2 boys that have ADD and ADHD. They have both anxiety issues and mild learning disabilities. Does anyone ever fell if other people's reaction to them or the way they are treated adds to the symptoms of ADD/ADHD and the anxiety issues?

Heck yes.

My daughter has pretty severe anxiety issues and her teacher, who does try, but doesn't really "get" it, often times says things that will heighten my daughters anxiety and make it difficult for her to concentrate and work.

Its not intentional though, but all the same, it affects my daughter.

She goes to psychotherapy once a week to learn coping skills and problem solving techniques.

Take care,
