What is Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder/ADHD?
ADHD is a Disruptive Behavior Disorder characterized by the presence of a set of chronic and impairing behavior patterns that display abnormal levels of inattention, hyperactivity, or their combination.
Three Sub-Types of ADHD
Play Intelligence Philosophy.
Play Intelligence, aka self design, open source learning, or free range education, is not something that we do to our children but largely a process of unlearning, or rethinking, for us parents.
Most adults are products of the traditional school system which convinced us that learning only happens when people with power over us – teachers, parents -, coerce or otherwise “motivate” us to absorb information that people with power over teachers – education and developmental experts – decided that we should know.
We were all born with a drive to learn that is more compelling than almost any other instinct. If we step back from the power struggles of ADHD we can be allies with our children in learning, solving problems and creating dynamic approaches.
Common Features of Ad/Hd.
Regardless of the type, many children with ADHD commonly report in their minds, distracting them. Those distractions; images, sounds, and thoughts churn constantly make staying fixed on any one task or make activity nearly impossible.
Some children with ADHD don’t even hear people speak because they are so distracted, according to the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP).
Others find that all those images create such frenzy for them that they are unable to sit still, to pay attention to what is going on, or to plan ahead.
The core problem of ADHD, say experts, is that it affects all thought-processing tasks.
Play Intelligence Solutions.
Play Intelligence solutions on rules of engagement.
Play intelligence code – for ADHD children.
We have solutions how not to control but to guide and encourage ADHD children.
You can control their behavior by praise and reward and they will learn to look outside themselves for approval and for worth.
You can watch their every movement, every action, and every decision making sure they ‘do it right’ – but maybe they will then learn to always doubt themselves.
You can also choose to love and guide and encourage children without too much controlling and they will learn to trust themselves.” – Play Intelligence
