Attention Difficulties in Children with ADHD
Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), formally known as Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), experience differences in brain development and brain activity that affects their attention. The disorder impacts a child’s ability to sit still and and maintain self-control. While ADHD impacts a child’s development it can also impact family dynamics and social interactions. The good news is, there are many forms of treatment for ADHD.
Complementary ADHD Treatment Pathways
Healthcare professionals may prescribe a combination of ADHD treatments, involving medication, behavioural therapy, parent training, and cognitive therapy. Tali Train is an early intervention option which may be implemented for kids at an earlier age than other treatments. Depending on your child’s needs, each treatment may complement another. Train can be used alongside other treatment, including medication.
Why use Cognitive Training as an ADHD Treatment
Cognitive training, sometimes referred to as “brain training” works on the premise that skills can be improved through repeated practice. While cognitive training is not guaranteed to help or treat all ADHD symptoms, cognitive training can be a strong supplemental treatment for children with ADHD. There are cognitive training programs that are designed specifically for children with attention difficulties and disorders. Because medical intervention is generally used for children seven years and older, cognitive training is a strong first line intervention.
