Managing Everyday Routines

Caring for those who learn and think differently can take time, energy and additional resources. Accurate advice and guidance on supporting your child to manage their problems and difficulties, is paramount to their environment within the family unit. ADHD can be experienced in mild, moderate, or severe forms, all depending on the extent to which it interferes with learning, relationships, work and managing everyday life. With the support of the right reliable resources, workshops and education forums, teachers, parents and carriers can learn techniques to engage each child’s unique learning styles and support them to explore their creativity.

Make the world a better place

As children with ADHD have the ability to think “outside of the box”, it is a gift we need to help them thrive with. Why? Because with the great power of being creative, passionate, sensitive and caring, they can lack the emotional regulation, attention and an impulsivity which may hinder their daily lives. But if they focus on what they find difficult, without giving them the right support, they can think their differences are negative rather than positive. They can become anxious, self-destructive, lack self-esteem, isolate themselves, or become attention seeking.

That’s why supporting a child by highlighting their strengths and helping them to manage their limitations will give them develop the confidence they need to be successful in life. Let’s help our kids shine!

ADHD in adults from childhood – fact or fiction?

“It’s a myth”, according to the disbelievers – “Kids with ADHD with outgrow it when they reach adulthood”. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Most people with ADHD in childhood

continue to have ADHD in adulthood. Unfortunately, there are a million people with diagnosable ADHD in Australia, most of whom are adults and with no diagnosis or access to treatment to improve the quality of their lives. While some people are fortunate to have sufficient support to thrive with their ADHD symptoms, the majority are not so fortunate.
