Do you know that within the United States, over 6 million children between the ages of 3 and 17 have been diagnosed with ADHD? That’s right. 28% of the population suffers from this disorder. If you are raising a child with ADHD you know that it can be difficult to capture and keep his/her attention. You should also know that you are not alone, and that there are several resources out there to help you with your journey. The Tutoring Center in Middletown would like to assist you today by offering a few simple tips you can begin enacting at home, to help engage your child with ADHD. 

Routine and Structure

We know that all children benefit from routine and structure. However, due to ADHD making it more difficult to exhibit self-control and focus, it is absolutely essential for children with ADHD to have external controls. Clearly stating what is expected of them, and when, will help them to develop these skills.

Healthy Living

It is essential that you and your child maintain a healthy lifestyle. Given your example, it will be easier for your child to adapt to healthy choices of his/her own. Let us start with three healthy living habits you and your child can practice.

Exercise and Play

A healthy amount of physical activity is crucial to the well-being of you and your child. Physical activity that is enjoyed will help to activate not only the body, but also promote mental health.   

Eating Well

A balanced diet, low in sugar, will help improve brain activity and brain health.

Sleeping Well

It is not simply a matter of how much you or your child should sleep, which will vary based on activity level and age, but also about how you or your child sleep best. This is based largely on preference. You should know what your personal preferences are, as well as asking your child when he or she sleeps best. Is it better that the room is completely dark? Quiet? Does he or she prefer sleeping with a nightlight or a fan in the room, providing noise?

Remember that habits take weeks to form, and it is possible that said habits may take longer for those with ADHD. Don’t fret. Stick with these tips to see what you and your child can achieve. It is possible that you will discover your child still needs assistance in one or more academic areas, and that is OK. Remember that The Tutoring Center has a particular method of tutoring that is designed to capture and keep the attention of those with ADHD.
