How I Achieved Maximum Success with Autisim
ADHD is an abbreviation for the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. ADHD refers to a medical condition that affects how well someone can sit still, focus and also pay attention. ADHD is a commonly diagnosed mental disorder in children and teens and it can even continue to adulthood.
One of the signs of ADHD is that children with ADHD have a very self focused behaviour such that they are unable to recognise other people’s needs and desires. ADHD patients suffer from the lack of focus and thus they end up avoiding activities that require a continued mental endeavour like attending to class and doing homework because they have a forgetful mind.
There are various ways on how to deal with patients with ADHD and that is what we will discuss in this article. As said earlier, patients with ADHD have a problem of keeping track of things and activities and one way to deal with that is by making use of the calendar.
You can also organise your room, office, class or home in such a way that all the things you need to use on a regular basis are in a place where you can easily see them and also throw way those that are unnecessary to avoid confusion. Another way to deal with disorganisation of papers to avoid the use of papers in your work or minimise the number of papers you use by opting to the use of electronic gadgets such as computers, tablets and phones and also requesting for electronic gadgets statements and bills instead of paperwork.
The parent is required to have the energy, patience, affection for the kid in order to be able to help the child.
After defining the rules you want your kid to follow, it is advisable to allow flexibility by avoiding too much strictness on the kid because kids with ADHD normally have a problem of adapting to changes so u need to also understand that part very well.
It is also advisable that you also learn to ignore the mild disruptive behaviours of the kid because there has to be in one way or the other, a way, that the kid has to release his or her confined energy; if the kid does it intentionally, in an abusive way or deliberately disrupts other you should urge the kid not to do so or even punish him or her if need be.
If the kid has a tendency of having self focused behaviours you can help them by encouraging them to think out loud and share with you what it is that they are thinking about or what it is that is running on their mind; Asking your kid to articulate their thoughts and reasoning when the need to act out arises can also be a way to help them stop focusing on themselves and it also helps to curb impulsive behaviours in kids with ADHD.
