Realizing your child has symptoms of ADHD and ADD can be difficult for many parents. You may feel helpless, unsure of the best way to help them cope. How do you find a solution to help them manage the symptoms of this diagnosis?
Historically the typical course of action in treating ADD is medication, but many parents are unwilling to try that as the first and only option. Are you searching for a more natural approach? Are you determined to discover the root cause of your child’s behavior before resorting to a prescription? You know there has to be another solution.
If you are trying to help your child and determine if a true and accurate ADHD/ADD diagnosis is likely, you’re probably observing symptoms like:
- Difficulty following simple directions or completing tasks
- Making careless mistakes or forgetting daily activities
- Losing things or frequent daydreaming
- Squirming or fidgeting
- Impulsivity and risk-taking behavior
- Difficulty sitting still or waiting for their turn
It’s common for most children to exhibit one or two of these behaviors as part of their normal personality, but if your child repeatedly exhibits a significant number of these behaviors — and you notice that it is interfering with their ability to function well at home, in school or in social settings — then you may consider having your child evaluated for underlying function issues in the brain that can successfully be treated without medication.
Sometimes medication is necessary for ADD and ADHD treatment, often as the short-term intervention. But if you as a parent are fearful of the impact that long-term medication can have on your child’s quality of life, there are other options.
