Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is often characterized with symptoms from the following 3 categories of attention disorders:

  • Hyperactivity
  • Inattention
  • Impulsivity

Children suffering from ADHD often lack certain executive function skills, and therefore might have difficulty succeeding in learning.


Effects on Learning:

  • Divided or distracted attention
  • Difficulty in task completion
  • Communicative misunderstanding
  • Disruptive in class

HKEPSC Interventions:

  • Solution-Focused Therapy
  • Goal Directed Intensive Therapy
  • Impulse & Emotional Regulation Training
  • Higher-Order Thinking Skills

 

Being involved is necessary as a parent; when your child suffers from ADHD parental involvement is even more crucial and being supportive is the first step.

Connecting with the school setting & supporters may benefit your child by enhancing his learning experience and social interaction.
