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 condition that mostly affects kids at an early age.
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. One major problem that ADHD patients encounter is the inability to pay attention when one is talking to them or in class; a child with ADHD will have a lot of trouble keeping track of routines and activities .
Some of the skills that you can learn on order to be able to get your symptoms of ADHD under control includes the following: With the advancement in technology, one can equip themselves with a calendar app on their mobile phone and using the calendar you can always set a reminder so that it reminds you about your appointments, deadlines and other events.
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. If you are in the office or class and you have problem to do with disorganisation of your paper work, you can deal with it by choosing a paperwork system that works well with you and also avoid piling of papers on your desk or in the office.
Once you have decided on the kind of behaviours you want your child to have and they keep failing to follow the guidelines you can even punish him or her once for having an unacceptable behaviour or for failing to follow the instructions and guidelines given to the kid so that he or she will be afraid to face the consequence in case they are tempted to repeat the mistake.
One of the things you should completely avoid is discouraging the child when you realize they have an unusual problem; you should instead encourage them by telling them good and positive things about the problem they are having or encountering.
For instances, aggressive outbursts from children with ADHD is a common problem so one way to deal with it is by accepting and always being ready to help the kid no matter the situation.
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.
