Life can be hard for a child with ADHD. They're the ones who are so often in trouble at school, can't finish a game, and have trouble making friends. They may spend agonizing hours each night struggling to keep their mind on their homework, then forget to bring it to school. It is not easy coping with these frustrations day after day for children or their families. Family conflict can increase. Also, a child with ADHD can have problems with peers and friendships. In adolescence, these children are at increased risk for motor vehicle accidents, tobacco use, early pregnancy, and lower educational attainment. When a child receives a diagnosis of ADHD, parents need to think carefully about treatment and medication choices. And when they pursue treatment for their children, they may face high out-of-pocket expenses because treatment for ADHD and other mental illnesses is often not covered by insurance policies. School programs (social skills and behavior training) to help children with problems often connected to ADHD are not available in many schools. Also, not every child with ADHD qualifies for special education services. All of this leads to children who do not receive proper and adequate treatment. To overcome these barriers, parents may want to look for school-based programs that have a team approach involving parents, teachers, school psychologists, other mental health specialists, and doctors.
Most children in school need some help, but children with ADHD need special attention from their parents during the school years.Some possible ways to help your child include:Inform school administration about your child's ADHD and ask if they have any special programs available for children with ADHD.Contact a school counselor to setup appointments for your child, if necessary, to help them organize and stay on track of assignments.Seek proper medical treatment.Make sure to communicate with your child on their progress, both educationally and socially; both are important aspects.
No. Each child diagnosed with ADHD should be perscribed an ADHD treatment that will work for them. The same thing isn't going to work with every child. "Well, yes and no. ADHD treatment is different for each child affected, but there are standard medications and things like that which are used in each treatment."
Most cases of ADHD are diagnosed in the early school years; there is numerous new expectations that a child with ADHD would have trouble following like taking turns, remaining seated, and not disrupting the classroom. Also, there is increased observation of a child in the school environment, so a teacher or other school official could recommend a doctor visit. In some cases, ADHD is diagnosed in the teenage years. This is more common with the inattentive subtype; lack of focus becomes much more apparent with the increase of responsibilities and commitments in the teenage years.
