Further help with ADHD
Once the ADHD diagnosis is certain, parents will be concerned and worried about many questions. What will help with ADHD? Can my child learn to better concentrate? And how to deal best with hyperactive and impulsive behaviour? The following tips and tricks will help you support your child to better cope with everyday life.
Concentration training: ADHD
Concentration exercises are an important component part of occupational therapy with ADHD. The child will train, for example, to deal with a task for a specified period of time and finish it.
What to do against hyperactivity?
Above all, children with ADHD need fixed daily routines and structures. When they know what is to come and what is expected of them, they are often significantly calmer and right away more balanced.
Children with ADHD frequently tend to impulsive behaviour. Parents know violent mood swings and tantrums only too well. In such situations, it is important to give the child time to let off steam.
ADHD: Forgetfulness and disorganisation
Your child constantly forgets things and loses items such as notebooks or pens? These oddities are also typical for ADHD. Some tips may help to handle the mental chaos.
ADHD: Bolster self-confidence
Unfortunately, children with ADHD frequently get negative feedback from their social environment. Too loud, too fidgety, too dreamy … All the more important that you help your child to still develop a healthy degree of self-confidence.
