Latest word on ADHD

Family First | VoiceAmerica™

More and more children today are being diagnosed with learning disabilities, and at earlier and earlier ages. Schools have difficulty meeting the needs of kids with learning differences, and some kids can affect the whole classroom when they become bored or confused. Parents face difficult choices when they hear ADHD: get supplemental schooling, change schools, use questionable medications, try alternative health approaches, check environmental factors, hire tutors, or try home education?

Take Home Tips from Randy Rolfe: Frequent, loving interaction between parent and child is the best way to see that a child's brain, behavior, and perception develop normally. It is also the best way to notice if something doesn't seem right so that you can investigate further to see what adjustments you can make to the environment or your interactions to minimize any developmental delays.
