ADHD/ADD Guide

Intro

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a condition that, according to the NHS, affects between 3-5% of children, predominantly boys. Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a distinct term that was used. Generally, people who are diagnosed with attention deficit will be termed as having ADHD, even if they do not display hyperactivity. This is worth bearing in mind as you read literature on the subject, as you are likely to come across both terms. For the purposes of this piece we will refer solely to ADHD.

Children and young people with ADHD often present with behaviour that is perceived as “disruptive”. This can often mean that a child faces additional challenges at school and additional support is therefore vital.

Key Features

Here are some general symptoms and behaviours which may indicate a child or young person has ADHD:

  • Concentrating on a task for a period of time can be a struggle
  • Quick to become frustrated
  • Impulsive behaviours
  • Hyperactive behaviour

What can help?

In the first instance, you should consult with your GP if you suspect your child has ADHD. Once diagnosed, there are a number of strategies that may help to support the education of a child or young person with ADHD. Here are a few ideas:

  • Clearly presented and structured routines
  • Clear and consistent communication between teachers and parents
  • Break up complex and long-winded tasks into short, achievable challenges
  • Accentuate the positives by rewarding good work and effort, no matter how small
  • Establish “time-out zones”, quiet areas where the child or young person can go and sit if things become overwhelming
  • Targeted one to one support via school based support or one to one tuition

Final Thoughts

ADHD can be a challenging condition for the child or young person as well as parents. From an educational perspective, the great news is there is much more understanding of the condition now and as such, approaches are being developed

"We hired Owl Tutors to help our American daughter get up to speed on some UK Maths and English questions prior to us relocating from California to London. We were assigned Kelly, and she was fantastic. Our daughter was a little nervous in the beginning and Kelly was calm, friendly and patient, and our daughter warmed to her in no time.

After a couple of months our daughter took her UK entrance exam with confidence, and passed.

We highly recommend Owl Tutors and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kelly. We hope to use her ourselves again in the future.

Thanks

Richard"
