Over 6 million children between the ages of 3 and 17 have been diagnosed with ADHD. That’s correct, 28% of the population in the US alone, has been diagnosed with this disorder. If you are raising a child with ADHD you understand that it can be difficult to capture and keep the attention of your child. It is with this in mind that we, at The Tutoring Center, would like to offer some simple tips for your daily lives at home, to help increase your child’s attention span, as well as have a more proactive and happy home life. 

Routine and Structure

We know that all children benefit from routine and structure. However, due to ADHD making it more difficult to exhibit self-control and focus, it is absolutely essential for children with ADHD to have external controls. Clearly stating what is expected of them, and when, will help them to develop these skills.

Healthy Living

It is essential that you and your child maintain a healthy lifestyle. Given your example, it will be easier for your child to adapt to healthy choices of his/her own. Let us start with three healthy living habits you and your child can practice.

Exercise and Play
A healthy amount of physical activity is crucial to the well-being of you and your child. Physical activity that is enjoyed will help to activate not only the body, but also promote mental health.   

Eating Well
A balanced diet, low in sugar, will help improve brain activity and brain health.

Sleeping Well
It is not simply a matter of how much you or your child should sleep, which will vary based on activity level and age, but also about how you or your child sleep best. This is based largely on preference. You should know what your personal preferences are, as well as asking your child when he or she sleeps best. Is it better that the room is completely dark? Quiet? Does he or she prefer sleeping with a nightlight or a fan in the room, providing noise?

Remember that for a child with ADHD, forming habits can take a bit longer than the average 2 weeks. So, don’t get frustrated. Stick with these tips to help your child succeed. You may find it necessary to get some extra help in an academic area or two with your child. The Tutoring Center in Roseville uses a special form of tutoring that will help to capture and keep the attention of even the least attentive of children. Our profession and dedicated tutors are here, ready to help your child achieve far beyond what they thought possible.
