Living with challenging behaviours is overwhelming. It involves grief, anger, stress, conflict, guilt, feelings of inadequacy, helplessness and hopelessness.

For parents it is constant embarrassment, searching and fear of the future (including tomorrow).

For professionals it is a complex minefield of behaviours, individuals, parents and families in stress.

For those with ADHD/SLD it is confusion, trouble, failure, helplessness and hopelessness often leading to giving up.

If left unchecked or mismanaged these conditions, particularly when combined, can lead to a bleak future of disengagement and lack of fulfilment.

There is no one to blame. These are hereditary conditions.

The brain has developed differently; therefore these individuals see situations differently, hear comments differently; therefore they will, and do, react differently.

The answer to these issues is actually quite simple:

  1. Understand the thinking process
  2. Put a strategy in place

So where does it go wrong?

  1. Very few people have the required understanding (it is different to having knowledge)
  2. Therefore, reactions are misunderstood
  3. Leading to the use of inappropriate strategies
  4. Creating more problems
  5. There is also a need to know which strategies are appropriate

Here is an example

Issue:

A 7 year old talking about self-harming

Knowledge required:

Individuals with ADHD can be up to 3 years behind in emotional maturity

Self-harming is a signal of being in a situation of pressure and feeling that there is no way out

The missing understanding:

For a 7 year old dressing themselves may be appropriate, but for a 4 year old it can be a pressure.

For a seven year old doing homework might be bearable. For a 4 year old it is an unbearable pressure.

The strategy:

Go back to assisting with dressing

Read a story together for homework

The result:

References to self-harming immediately stopped

Why?

We need to have knowledge but it is the understanding of what that knowledge means in everyday life that makes the difference.

How can we help

Each resource created by Every Day with ADHD answers the above 5 questions and more.

Why?    Because I am passionate about the potential of individuals with ADHD/SLD and strengthening parents, the family unit in order to provide support and security.

Sort through the challenges and live the potential
