Helping Your Son with Attention Deficit Disorder
Our boys homes in Missouri treats boys struggling with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), a behavior pattern seen as the lack of ability to stay on task, with trouble in controlling emotions and staying still, when compared with the general population. This behavior can get in the way of his ability to finish his work, and function successfully in society.
If he is easily sidetracked, has poor organizational skills or jumps from one incomplete assignment to another, he may well be facing the problems of Attention Deficit Disorder.
Precise causes of ADD (also known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder/ADHD) are unknown but studies show some association with heredity, nutrition and environment.
About Attention Deficit Disorder
Attention Deficit Disorder is one of the most oft- diagnosed problems among teenaged boys today and it is imperative to identify this Disorder properly, as certain other conditions (i.e.: anxiety, sleep or thyroid problems, depression, unforeseen life change) can closely mimic ADHD-like behaviors
Because of the great level of distraction with ADD leading to poor academic performance and low self-esteem, a large percentage of boys with it will fail to finish high school. While he may not completely outgrow his symptoms, your boy can certainly learn strategies for success.
You don’t want ADHD to control his life!
