ADHD

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) not only affects a child’s learning but creates challenges in the everyday lives of the entire family.

There are a number of options available tor the treatment of ADHD along with medicine also being an option. There are some children who only respond well to medicine while there are others who respond well to something else or a combination of treatments. Together with a psychologist, you can come up with an effective ADHD treatment plan suitable for the needs of your child.

For most children, medicine is key in their ADHD management. Experts also agree that if the dosage is tailored carefully about 80% of children respond well and show remarkable improvements over time.

At the time, medicine may not be a good option for all. In such a situation there plenty of therapies to help children with ADHD. Here are some options which may help:

  • Behavioural Therapy: This therapy aims at changing negative behaviour into positive behaviour. It includes reward systems which can be adapted and used at home. Behavioural Therapy is often used along with some medication in ADHD children.
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy: This therapy involves talking to the child directly and getting them to know about their thoughts, feelings and behaviour. CBT helps children in replacing negative thoughts with positive ones which are also realistic at the same time. It can be extremely helpful in building the self esteem of children, which is often negatively impacted by ADHD.
  • Social Skills Group: For some children, ADHD makes socializing an extremely difficult process. Children in such situations either talk nonstop and have a difficult time in trying to think before they speak. They have various problems managing their emotions and experience them in extreme forms (sadness as well as happiness). Joining a social skills group can teach children to overcome these issues and interact with others.

Apart from these approaches, there are also alternative approaches which can help make a better impact for treating ADHD. These could be exercising or playing sports, other outdoor activities like hiking, taking omega supplements and making some changes in their diet (after consulting with a nutritionist!)
