Being a parent can be more complicated when your child is diagnosed with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), but with patience, dedication and the right help this task will be easier.
Children with ADHD have symptoms such as hyperactivity and / or attention deficit. When a specialist diagnoses it, it can be a relief to understand the reason for some of your child’s behaviors, but it does not mean that you can relax. Here is the time to ask for help and follow the appropriate steps for the child with ADHD to evolve and improve.
There are three types of treatment for this disorder: the pharmacological one, of which it is preferable not to abuse or precipitate its use; therapeutic treatment and psychopedagogical treatment.
At ADHD & Chess we highlight the existence of multimodal treatment, in which all three treatments are used, because using a multimodal approach has been shown to have great benefits for your child.
Some tips for parents with children with ADHD are:
The use of chess for therapeutic and educational purposes
Seek professional help
Do not punish for behaviors that your child does not control
Organize a schedule and establish a clear structure
Give rewards to effort
Cooperate with your child’s school
- Above all, believe in your child!
