More about the talk
It is estimated that 5-10% of children of school age in the western world are suffering from Attention Deficit Disorder; with or without Hyperactivity. Teachers are constantly facing a challenge with children that seem to not have the ability to focus on their studies, do their homework or keep up with the materials learnt in class. The parents experience it at home; they KNOW their child is bright and can achieve a lot, but the child just doesn’t do well at school. If there is also hyperactivity in the picture, it just adds to everyone’s frustration.
And the child? His/her difficulty is that they can’t help themselves, and feel misunderstood. They WANT to remember their school tasks, they WANT to do well at school, but they CAN’T concentrate. They feel like there is a fog in their head, masking everything else.
Why? Because they have an imbalance in their brainwave activity that makes it so difficult for them to focus.
Understanding what happens in the brain of an ADHD child will help parents and teachers guide, help and encourage the child. By learning about tools to regulate the brainwave activity of an ADHD child, you will be able to give him/her the tools to understand their brain, and most importantly – to take control over their brain activity and train it to become more focused and concentrated.
Join us for an in-depth talk about how you can help your child improve their achievements … and their life!
Topics that will be covered:
• The brain of a child with ADHD
• The genetic and environmental factors that induce or play a role in ADHD
• Do and Don’t-do for parents and teachers to ADHD children
• Ritalin – For and Against
• How to treat ADHD without medication
