1. Sugar Intake Impacts Attention and Hyperactivity
A recent study highlighted the importance of limiting sugar intake to improve children's attention and reduce hyperactive behaviors. Focus was on students' consumption of energy drinks which contain sugar and often caffeine. There are implications for children with Attention Deficit Disorder.
2. Safer Driving for Teens with ADD
A recent study, published by JAMA Pediatrics, examined the records of youth with and without Attention Deficit Disorder in New Jersey. They were looking at risk statistics concerning young drivers, without and with ADD, and when they obtained their driver's licenses and had their first crash.
3. Kids with ADD Need Positive Reinforcement
Research published in the journal Behavioral and Brain Functions in 2015 suggests that positive reinforcement actually works better than criticism to provide motivation for the child with ADD/ADHD. It seems that children with ADD are more influenced by external reinforcers than kids without ADD.
4. Start Homeschooling by Tina Razzell Book Review
Many children with Attention Deficit Disorder have problems in school. Parents want an alternative, but worry about homeschooling. If you are considering homeschooling your child who has ADD, read Tina Razzell’s excellent book, Start Homeschooling – Great Education with Your Child at Home.
5. How Attention Deficit Disorder Affects Adults
ADD isn't just for kids! The National Institutes for Mental Health (NIMH) estimates that over four percent of the adult population has ADD. Attention Deficit Disorder can seriously impact many areas of adult life.
6. Using Music for ADD Motivation
As you go through your day, play the music of your life. Listening to music, pay attention to how it makes you feel! Music has been linked to the limbic system, which affects motivation. What do you need to do today? If you need to concentrate or study, put on music designed to help with that!
7. Stabilize Your Household with ADD
For many people with Attention Deficit Disorder areas that need work are the home setting, money management, personal relationships, and the workplace. When these areas are in balance, then so many more activities can be accomplished in all parts of your life. This starts in the home.
8. The Hidden Curriculum and ADD
Social rules are often unstated. People learn them by observation as small children. What happens if you don’t learn them? People who don’t learn these rules have all areas of their lives impacted by negative interactions with others. Learn what the “hidden curriculum” is and how it can be taught.
9. Limiting Stress with Attention Deficit Disorder
Stress comes because there are things to do, and we are not getting them done. Procrastination often stems from feeling overwhelmed. There is too much to do, too little time to do it, and your whole life is one confusing mess. How can you get it all sorted out and lower your stress level?
10. Quinoa Jambalaya Soup Recipe for ADD Nutrition
Quinoa Jambalaya Soup is not the customary recipe, it has its roots firmly in the flavors of the Creole flavor tradition. My recipe is truly a hearty soup made with quinoa and chicken sausage to improve the nutritional profile. Use your ADD creativity to play with this recipe to make it your own!
