When a child receives an ADHD diagnosis, they often take home a prescription for medication, maybe a handout titled “What Is ADHD?”, and that’s it. Rarely do they get a clear, fact-based explanation of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. As a result, many kids — and parents — feel unnecessarily ashamed of the diagnosis.
ADHD Awareness Month is a perfect time to address this prevalent and persistent problem. The gains to a child’s self-esteem and self-understanding are huge when a caregiver works to gain deep knowledge and insight about attention deficit disorder (ADHD or ADD) — and the words to explain it effectively to a child, family members, and friends. Helping your child explain his own ADHD to peers and teachers is empowering and the most effective form of self-advocacy.
