My toddler has ADHD and I thought about starting this blog to show how we found a method to helped us to improve our sons attention skills and to encourage him to talk, improve his vocabulary and more.
1. Monkey see Monkey do. Show toddler his/her image in front of Mirror or camera IPAD smart device, pronounce words with him then playback on IPad or smart phone and show him.
2. Follow a routine. It is important to set a time and a place for everything to help the child with ADHD understand and meet expectations. Establish simple and predictable rituals for meals, homework, play, and bed. Have your child lay out clothes for the next morning before going to bed, and make sure whatever he or she needs to take to school is in a special place, ready to grab.
3. Signs. that link to actions like cross arms to stop or palm of hands open.
4. Cutout the Babble. Try not to use baby talk unless he/she using it already.
5. Multimedia. Avoid putting on tv and favourite cartoons To keep them busy. Any media other then interactive actions are not beneficial.
6 Listen to your child. Listen to the sounds or words your child is making. Sometimes they have there own language and it’s the parents that need to discover identify what the child is saying or means. This last point is important particularly in a household where parents speak different languages sometimes interchangeably and unknowingly.
7. Keep your energy levels high. Seek as much support as you can. Rearing a child with ADHD is that you don’t have to do it alone. Talk to your child’s doctors, therapists, and teachers.
8. Forums.Join an organized support group for parents of children with ADHD. These groups offer a forum for giving and receiving advice, and provide a safe place to vent feelings a share experiences.
9.Alternative Medicines. Some sources useful for reading are homeopathic Medicines including CBD oil for parents, Eating balanced diet and exercising regularly find ways to reduce stress, whether it means taking a nightly bath or practicing morning meditation. If you do get sick, acknowledge it and get help.
10.Diet. Evaluate your child’s diet at home and at school. Consider the effects of diet particularly Gluten intolerance. This is one of those aspects that shouldn’t be overlooked
