You Can Take: Working with Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder
opportunities for the child and family to become educated about AD(H)D
so everyone understands the biochemical nature of the problem, and that
sometimes the child may be unable more than unwilling.
- Have the child seen by a physician to determine
if medication could be useful.
- Ensure that an appropriate educational plan
is in place, and that school personnel are equipped to teach in a manner
in which the child can flourish.
- Link caretakers to training in behavior
management techniques, and ensure an adequate support system.
- Set up individual, small group, or family
counseling to help address daily living problems that accompany parenting
a child with AD(H)D.
