Chalk Talk: Attention Deficit Disorder
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), formerly known as ADHD, is a common condition that parents and teachers face today. Telltale signs may include difficulty focusing on school work or other duties, an accumulation of incomplete assignments, interrupted sleep pattern or difficulty falling asleep, restlessness, and talkativeness. However, children who have ADD may be able to focus on things that they are very interested in, be quiet, or sit for extended periods of time. A doctor must diagnose this condition, and cannot do so until the child reaches a certain age. There are traditional and natural treatments for ADD, as well as recommended lifestyle changes that have proven to be very helpful in relieving children of the symptoms. As a result, students with ADD have the same opportunities and successful experiences as students without it.
