Identifying and prioritizing key behaviors in children with ADHD and learning challenges.
My personal approach is to identify the unique behavioral patterns, particularly focusing on conditions like ADHD, anxiety, and depression because while there are clinical aspects consistent across cases, each person's experience is distinct. Even in cases of ADHD, no two individuals showcase exactly the same behaviors or brain profiles.
To effectively address these conditions, it's essential to pinpoint the primary behaviors driving the challenges. If we were to distill it down to three core behaviors, let's take an example of a recent case involving anxiety, ADHD, and learning difficulties like dyslexia. The most troublesome behaviors were aggression towards a sibling, faster processing, and challenges in learning. These behaviors were identified as the key drivers, providing a focal point for developing tailored strategies and interventions.
It’s best to have a journal, whether it's a physical book or notes on your phone, to track and detachingly observe your experiences. This can aid in the introspection process. You can also try joining relevant communities or groups, like our Facebook group which you can access through our Natural Parenting Solutions group.
Consider supplements, therapy, courses, or other possibilities like neurofeedback. Research each option thoroughly and prioritize calming and regulating the brain, especially for emotionally dysregulated individuals, as learning is ineffective without a regulated brain. Consistency is key in whatever path you choose, emphasizing the importance of avoiding the misconception of a quick-fix solution and understanding the need for commitment and dedication in the journey towards mental health.
