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 a condition that mostly affects kids at an early age.
Once an ADHD patient is self focused it can easily cause them to interrupt the people close to him or her while they are talking and they can also join into conversations, activities, games and arguments that they are not even part of. 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.
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.
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.
The first step to solving any problem is by accepting that the problem has already happened or already exists, similarly, the first step to helping a kid with ADHD is by accepting and understanding the condition of the kid plus accepting them for whom they are.
If the kid has a tendency of having self focused behaviours you can help them by encouraging them to think out loud and share with you what it is that they are thinking about or what it is that is running on their mind; Asking your kid to articulate their thoughts and reasoning when the need to act out arises can also be a way to help them stop focusing on themselves and it also helps to curb impulsive behaviours in kids with ADHD.
