This seminar is equally suitable for professionals such those from the health sector and teachers along with parents and adults with ADHD.
An interesting way of looking attention, if you have ADHD!
There’s attention and inattention. You’re paying attention or you’re not. You’re focused or you’re distracted. We often talk about attention like it’s a black-and-white, on-or-off thing. But in many ways, it’s more of a spectrum.
Struggling to concentrate, having too much energy and being unable to control behaviour – the main manifestations of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) – have been linked to disruptions in sleep, researchers will reveal on Sunday.
The findings underline a growing awareness among doctors that disturbed sleep is associated with many major health hazards. Other ailments linked to the problem include obesity, diabetes and heart disease. The work opens up the possibility of developing treatments for ADHD without drugs, the researchers say.
ADHD is a disorder that affects the brain and behaviours. There’s no known cure for ADHD, but several options can help your child manage their symptoms.
Treatments range from behavioural intervention to prescription medication. Read on to learn about the options available today for treating ADHD.
Stimulant and non-stimulant medications
Medication is often an important part of treatment for a child with ADHD. However, it can be a difficult decision to make as a parent.
Many people wish they had superhuman powers to deal with life's problems. When you’re an entrepreneur, focus and concentration are seen as critical to success. So, if like me, you have ADHD, it can seem like you’re on the back foot from the get go.
However, if you’re determined to succeed, there are many ways you can embrace the condition and use its quirks to your advantage; in life and in business.
