A child’s mind is steeped in possibility, creativity, curiosity and wonder. But when he starts showing signs of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) (or a learning challenge — or both) — what then?
Signs of ADHD:
- Interrupting – A child with ADHD may interrupt others while they’re talking.
- Hyperactivity – Children with ADHD can’t sit still. They may fidget or squirm in their chair when forced to sit.
- Trouble Following Instructions – Children with ADHD can have trouble following instructions.
- Lack of Focus – A child with ADHD may have trouble paying attention, even when someone is speaking directly to them.
- Unfinished Tasks – A child may start a project, chores, or homework, but move on to the next thing that catches their interest before finishing.
- Impulsivity – An ADHD child will struggle with having to wait their turn during classroom activities or when playing games with other children.
- Distractibility – Staring into space, daydreaming, or ignoring what is going on around them.
- Forgetful – A child may forget to do chores or their homework. They may also forget their book bag, lunch box, coat, etc. at school.
At some point, all children are going to exhibit some of these behaviors. But, if your child regularly displays signs of ADHD or their behavior is affecting their success in school and having negative effects on social interactions with other kids, Neurofeedback can help.
Neurofeedback can help children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) to retrain their brain and recover optimum neural functioning. In other words, focus improves and impulsivity, distractibility, and hyperactivity diminish.
