How hard is it!?

Through your child’s eyes

ADHD Foundation has identified this resource as a very valuable tool for parents to explore to learn firsthand how frustrating it can be when can complete a simple task because you have trouble focussing.  This link www.understood.org/en/tools/through-your-childs-eyes provides you with the ability to experience these feelings through a series of simulations.  Game-like experiences provide a way to see why learning and attention issues can be so frustrating for your child.

Without effective management, ADHD will often have a substantial impact on academic and work-related outcomes. Several published studies have found significant differences in academic performance, relationships with siblings and behavioural and conduct problems in children with ADHD compared to those without the condition.
