If you have a child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), he/she needs your full support. Of course, this means providing them with educational and medical support and other practical assistance. However, the most important thing you can do for your child with ADHD is to emotionally support them.
While you may not ever fully understand the ADHD brain yourself, you can do your best to understand the way your child’s brain functions. Even having a vague idea of how your individual child’s mind runs will be a tremendous help in his/her life.
ADHD support is critical at school and in all areas of your child’s life, but the support you provide at home is unmatched. The emotional care and understanding you can provide your child will make a huge difference in his/her personal success.
This video provides a little glimpse inside the ADHD brain. It’s important to educate yourself on how ADHD can work (although of course there are huge variations), to get an idea of how your child may be perceiving and processing their world.
