Natural Alternatives and Practical Exercises to Help Your Child Focus

ADD/ADHD is one of the most misunderstood disorders affecting children today. Between 3 to 5 percent of school-age children are suspected to have ADD or ADHD. Parents of children with this disorder are often at a loss for ways of helping their children focus, complete tasks, and manage their behavior.  These parent are often under pressure from their child’s school to “do something”, and often resort to agreeing to medication for their child, even when they are uncomfortable with that treatment decision. As parents of children with this condition know, medications that are commonly used to treat this disorder, like Ritalin, may only temporarily alleviate symptoms or they may not work at all. More alarmingly, these medications can come with serious side effects such as weight loss, insomnia, and slowed growth rates.

 

Frank Jacobelli has treated both children and adults in a variety of clinical settings, including inpatient psychiatric, private practice, and community mental health. L.A. Watson has been an early-learning education director, multiple subject teacher, special educator, special education administrator, and resource specialist. The authors have first-hand experience in treating children with learning disorders during their years in these positions.

The book features personalized games and activities designed to strengthen brain functioning in the areas that will benefit the child most. It also includes advice on how parents, teachers, and counselors can alter a child’s daily routine in order to minimize or even eliminate his or her symptoms. The authors include tips on diet and exercise ideas, gentle behavioral modification, and effective discipline techniques for children with these disorders. The book also includes survival skills for every parent who does not want to lose his or her personal life.
