I'm delighted to highlight a programme about identifying a child with ADHD. Do you recognise your child from the descriptions in the video?
"What's the difference between a problem child and a child with a genuine problem?
Watch our webTV show where Lorrine Marer, Behavioural Specialist and ADHD Coach, shares her practical advice on the subject.
With Christmas just around the corner, children are sure to become easily distracted, excitable and impatient at the thought of all the presents they soon get to unwrap.
Along with all the added stress of present buying and manically organizing Christmas parties, this time of year can also be a nightmare for mums and dads when it comes to handling their child's behaviour. This could not only be affecting home life but also having an impact in the classroom and proving to be a distraction for other children at school. Furthermore, figuring out whether your child is just being a typical excited kid at Christmas, or whether they might need specialist help with their behaviour, can be hard to decipher during the festive season.
So how can you really tell whether your child is suffering from a genuine problem or whether their inability to focus is just ordinary child behaviour? Do you feel at your wit's end, or do you often think you might be reading too much into the way your child behaves?
If you answered yes to any of the above then watch our webTV show on Monday 12th December at 2.30pm with Lorrine Marer, behavioural and ADHD expert who will give her practical on the subject.
