ADHD is the short form of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. ADHD can also be termed as a condition of the brain that basically affects the ability of a person to pay attention. ADHD is commonly observed in children.
ADHD patients also have a problem of keeping their emotions all together such that they can just burst into anger or delightfulness at inappropriate times. Another thing that is commonly seen in children with ADHD is that they can’t often stand still because they will have to try to always run, fidget or turn in their chairs when they are required to get seated.
There are various ways on how to deal with patients with ADHD and that is what we will discuss in this article. The use of a day planner and electronic calendars is essential in this case because you can set up automatic reminders so that scheduled events do not pass unrecognised.
Coming up with a structure or a habit that you can follow on a regular basis can also help; make a habit of taking notes whenever you are in class or you are listening from someone so that it can boost your attention. Another way to deal with disorganisation of papers to avoid the use of papers in your work or minimise the number of papers you use by opting to the use of electronic gadgets such as computers, tablets and phones and also requesting for electronic gadgets statements and bills instead of paperwork.
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.
After defining the rules you want your kid to follow, it is advisable to allow flexibility by avoiding too much strictness on the kid because kids with ADHD normally have a problem of adapting to changes so u need to also understand that part very well.
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.
