Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, or ADHD, is a disorder that 28% of children between the ages of 3-17 have been diagnosed with. The statistics are growing daily. There are many resources available to those of us who are raising a child with ADHD, but so much so, that it may become overwhelming. It is with this in mind that The Tutoring Center in San Ramon would like to share just two simple, yet essential tips, you can take to make sure your child with ADHD is engaged and happy in your home. 

Bring About Structure and Routine

Due to ADHD it is absolutely necessary that you provide structure and a routine for your child. As it is already difficult to exhibit self-control and focus, whatever you can do to help them understand what is expected of them at any given time, is a plus. Try posting this information on a calendar somewhere they’ll always be able to see. That way if there is any confusion, they can always check. 

Provide a Healthy Lifestyle

As a parent you are surely aware of the importance of living a healthy and active lifestyle with your child. Below are three ways you can help to ensure your child is living as healthy as possible. 

Exercise and Play
Find out what a healthy amount of exercise is right for your child’s age and help them to achieve it. It doesn’t matter much what the activity is, so long as it is engaging to your child. You can enroll him or her in organized sports, dance, martial arts, or even just ensure that he or she is participating in active play with friends. 

Eating Well
Not only is a balanced diet great for brain growth and development, but a diet low in sugar is extremely helpful for a child with ADHD. As there are already problems focusing on tasks, you can help out by limiting the sugar intake. 

Sleeping Well
Remember that this is not just about the quantity of sleep your child receives, but that quality is of equal importance. Try finding out what your child’s sleep preferences are. While it may be hard for him or her to verbalize, consider asking questions about the temperature of the room, what kind of noise they like, do they need silence of would a fan be beneficial. Find out how they feel about their mattresses firmness or softness. Should they have a nightlight. These questions will help you understand how your child sleeps the best, and then you can be as accommodating as possible to ensure 

Once you have begun to see results, remembering this could take longer than it might for a child without ADHD, you may find it’s time to work on an academic area or two that your child is having trouble with.
