Things to Do When You Have ADHD
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 a condition that mostly affects kids at an early age.
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. 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. 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.
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.
If you are a parent who has a kid with ADHD you can solve the problem of behavioural mismatch of your child by deciding in advance the behaviours which are good enough and acceptable or not by helping the kid understand the consequence of the actions they do.
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 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.
