Raising a Child With ADHD: When Equipped With Information, Parents Can Meet the Challenge

Every child possesses his or her own strengths and weaknesses. These capabilities are true even if the child has a disability, like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Effectively managing your child’s symptoms can affect both the severity of the disorder and development of more serious problems over time. As a parent, there are many ways to support your child with ADHD in order to build the requisite skills that will facilitate future success: 

  • Understand the impact of ADHD on your child: Different children experience ADHD differently. 
  • A comprehensive assessment is a critical tool to plan for future services: Diagnostic testing helps to identify and prioritize educational needs. 
  • Become your child’s case manager: Organizing and prioritizing your child’s needs is supported by effective data management to plan for the future and chart the progress that has been made. 
  • Communicate regularly: By maintaining ongoing communication with everyone supporting your child (teachers, therapists and physicians), the team can work together towards future progress.

With knowledge, resources and supports, parenting a child with ADHD can be accomplished successfully.
