Helping your child to learn

What is ADHD?
All children are different – this also applies to children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. They usually show some or all of the following behaviours in more than one context.
• Behaviour problems: - Aggressiveness, tantrums, depression or anxiety.
• Restlessness: - She has a short fuse, doing things without thinking.
• Difficulty in making relationships: - She is out of tune with others, acting silly or out of control.
• Specific Learning Difficulties: - She may also have problems with reading, writing, language and mathematics.
• Disorganisation: - She struggles to plan and see through tasks at home and school.
• Poor Attention: - The child is easily distracted from tasks, having difficulty following or remembering instructions.
• Intrusiveness: - She is hard to satisfy, tending to go on and on.

Will a child always have ADHD?
Sometimes the symptoms can diminish. Children and young people who continue to live with ADHD can learn to manage their symptoms, with the right support and management from parents and school.
