ADHD is the short form of 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 commonly observed in children.
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. 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.
The parent is required to have the energy, patience, affection for the kid in order to be able to help the child.
Giving them a chance to make mistakes as they learn to abide by the rules and also rewarding them for passing tests when they are well behaved can also be a way to encourage theem.
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 you are a teacher in class and the kid has a problem of waiting for their turn to ask and answer questions or do anything is to teach the kid on how to pose for a moment before asking or answering questions.
