ADHD Caregiver Tips
The most important thing you can do for a loved one with ADHD is to be supportive. Try these helpful strategies:
- Get an accurate diagnosis.
- Manage your expectations.
- Work with your child’s school. Schoolchildren with behavioral problems need more structure and support than their peers.
- Recognize that teenagers with ADHD aren’t intentionally lazy or disruptive. Lack of attention and hyperactivity keep them from becoming motivated and engaged.
- Connect with other parents of children with ADHD for support.
- Identify and encourage the child’s strengths. Focus on the positive.
- Don’t listen to people who say ADHD isn’t real. ADHD is a complex brain disorder that neuroscientists are still struggling to understand.
