ADHD only very well could be the wrong name for one of our most common youth places in recent times. Indeed, one of the best-known research psychologists in this field openly acknowledges that ADHD is not properly characterized by what our children are most in difficulty with.
What if it was not all about:
- And all else we "know" about ADHD
I I'm not going to sit here and tell you that these issues are not important, but I'm going to ask you to review how you understand ADHD.
Think about what your child has the most. Is he struggling to get a job or manages him more with the following instructions?
What if your child wanted to follow instructions, but something missing between their intentions or wishes and their actions to follow effectively?
What is often not spoken in most ADHD circles is the fact that children who suffer from the symptoms of the disorder must be emotionally and physically tired.
One person with ADHD suggested to me that he spent more time trying to control his emotions and his reaction to certain events than anything else. In fact, it is one of the benefits many ADHD children find using drugs.
The drug does not necessarily alleviate the symptoms, but it helps them to continue focusing on tasks rather than spending energy trying to control their emotions as well as the tasks requested.
Imagine for a moment how successful you are and may be when your mind is disturbed by emotional response to circumstances. How successful are you completing your project or completing a project? How easy are you distracted?
Now I want you to imagine how physically wearing it can find after you've solved this emotionally too much.
Imagine this is a child's cycle face several times a day while trying to deal with ADHD.
