You only have to do a very few things right in your life so long as you don’t do too many things wrong.” - Warren Buffett

THE ANSWER LIES IN THE REALITY OF YOUR CHILD’S LIFE

The brain of the child with ADHD acts similarly to that of someone suffering from severe trauma or living in a constant state of fight or flight.

WHY? Children with ADHD are born with increased awareness causing many sensations to be overwhelming.

They are more sensitive to one or more of the 5 senses; touch, smell, sound, etc, as well as emotions.

On the positive side, this increased awareness means they have exceptional gifts and talents, are capable of concentrating intensely, and going into hyperfocus.

Overload causes the brain to freeze. In fight or flight, it can be impossible to begin a task, or stay connected with it.

It can be difficult to concentrate on conversations or remember what was said later.

In can be challenging to make sense of things when awareness is scattered across many different things, or focused deeply on one relatively inconsequential detail.

WHAT THIS MEANS

Children with ADHD are born hypersensitive and aware, both emotionally and physically.

Children with ADHD excel in some areas, and flunk in others.

They may be naturally gifted. For example, at art, math, music, design, sports, etc.

They may appear inattentive.

Educators and parents wonder if they’re smart, slow, or just ‘choose not’ to pay attention.

ADHD does not mean that a child is stupid; Being overwhelmed means they’re actually trying ten times harder to get started, stay focused, or finish projects.

They may go into hyper focus, or ‘disappear down rabbit holes’, focusing on the wrong things.

WHY CHILDREN WITH ADHD STRUGGLE TO GET THINGS DONE

  • Some things are overwhelming due to increased sensitivity and awareness. The brain forgets things, gets scattered, can’t focus, or shuts down.
  • Some things are boring, or feel like a waste of time, making it difficult to pay attention.
  • They may have a natural understanding of the big picture, making unexpected leaps in intuition but find it hard to work on details.
  • Children with ADHD know the wonder and potential of life, so they avoid activities that bore them.
