ADHD, or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, affects more than 10% of 3-17 year olds within the United States. That means that almost 6 million children are diagnosed with this disorder. It may seem difficult to capture the attention and concentration of your ADHD child, but know that you are not alone. 

Here at The Tutoring Center we aim to provide you with two simple tips you can use at home, in order to engage your child with ADHD. 

Routine and Structure
All children benefit from routine and structure. However, due to ADHD making it more difficult to exhibit self-control and focus, it is absolutely essential for children with ADHD to have external controls. Clearly stating what is expected of them, and when, will help them to develop these skills. For more tips on how to organize their workspace, read Creating a Study Environment.

Healthy Living

It is essential that you and your child maintain a healthy lifestyle. Given your example, it will be easier for your child to adapt to healthy choices of his/her own. Let us start with three healthy living habits you and your child can practice. 

Exercise and Play

A healthy amount of physical activity is crucial to the well-being of you and your child. Physical activity that is enjoyed will help to activate not only the body, but also promote mental health.   

Eating Well

A balanced diet, low in sugar, will help improve brain activity and brain health.

Sleeping Well

It is not simply a matter of how much you or your child should sleep, which will vary based on activity level and age, but also about how you or your child sleep best. This is based largely on preference. You should know what your personal preferences are, as well as asking your child when he or she sleeps best. Is it better that the room is completely dark? Quiet? Does he or she prefer sleeping with a nightlight or a fan in the room, providing noise? 

Once you have begun enacting these habits in your home, you may find it still necessary to receive extra help with your child. We are here for you. At The Tutoring Center in West Caldwell we have dedicated and professional tutors, willing to help your child reach ultimate success.
