For the good of the children and families involved, more and more cases of hyperactivity "come out of the closet". You are not alone: this is the message that parents of a hyperactive child want to give with their book to other families who feel, as they once felt, in a dead end.
This attractive testimony of parents who sought and found answers for their child's behavioral problems brings hope to families with children who suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder with or without Hyperactivity, especially in the first stage, when they have just confirmed the diagnosis. The support, in this case, comes from the explanations, from the experience and especially from the achievements of the couple.
In an exclusive interview on our site, the authors of the book, María Jesús Ordóñez (primary care pediatrician) and Roberto Álvarez.Higuera (businessman and editor), talk about their experience as parents of a child who was diagnosed with ADHD at the 14 years of age. Clothed in hope, they review what they had to face and what they accomplished. I'll give you a summary of what I think is the most important thing for the parents of a child with hyperactivity that, as few know, is a neurological pathology that affects, according to the World Health Organization (WHO), 8 percent of the children population. - A reliable diagnosis of a child with ADHD is usually given after 6 or 7 years of age because it is considered that many of the symptoms may be within normality. - There are very obvious cases in which ADHD could be diagnosed at an early age. - Constant movement, forgetfulness and confusion, excessive impulsiveness, are just some of the characteristics of a child with ADHD. - Attention Deficit without Hyperactivity is more common in girls and since they are always in their things, they go unnoticed. - Hyperactive children do not stop, they hit, they do not know how to be still, they hum, they get up, they answer before you finish asking ... their behavior alters the family's well-being and their adaptation to school. - Up to 70 percent of ADHD cases are associated with learning disorders such as dyslexia. - At school, hyperactive children are sometimes seen as problematic children due to their behavior. They do not take turns, have difficulty sharing games, do not stand still, make noise in class, destroy anything that is put in their hands, get up when they have to remain seated, etc. - Because his bad behavior in class is not well seen by teachers and classmates, the self-esteem of the hyperactive child deteriorates and he ends up believing that everything he does is bad. - It is important that parents know how to value and recognize the good things hyperactive children do and that they know how to correct their misbehavior by instilling rules and limits. - Treatment is multidisciplinary, that is, medical (with drugs), psychosocial (at home and at school).
