82: Why ADHD Kids Can’t Get Anything Done

ADHD involves attention, impulse control, and hyperactivity which interferes with your kid’s ability to stay focused and organized. That is why we’re going to discuss in this episode why ADHD kids can’t get anything done.

Parents often take pride when their kids get to accomplish things on their own. However, there are kids who just can’t seem to get anything done, especially when they are diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

ADHD involves attention, impulse control, and hyperactivity which interferes with your kid’s ability to stay focused and organized. That is why we’re going to discuss in this episode why ADHD kids can’t get anything done.

Why ADHD kids can’t get anything done

When we speak of task completion, we associate it with executive functioning as it involves the ability to plan ahead and meet these objectives. For ADHD kids, they have issues as regards their executive functioning causing them to have difficulty even starting a task.

It’s crucial for us to have a deeper understanding about this matter to be able to take action on it. However, we have to keep in mind that the solutions that we have will only work if we do it consistently. We have to keep reinforcing the positive developments that we want for these behaviors to change.

Kids diagnosed with ADHD don’t have enough impulse control which contributes to their difficulty in transitioning from one task to another. Problems with general self regulation, low motivation, and procrastination are also some other factors as there are kids who just don’t have that ability to push them through to do tasks that are less desirable.

How do we take action on it?

The beauty of doing QEEG brain mapping is that I get to show parents and their kids how their kids’ brains look. We get to see the overstimulated and under stimulated areas of the brain. Through this assessment, we are able to identify the proper treatments and provide the necessary tools and resources.

Self-monitoring and self-regulation through neurofeedback greatly help improve your kid’s executive functioning skills. Neurofeedback is a safe alternative to medication.

Your kids are not doing it on purpose.

In connection with the abovementioned explanations, we have to take into consideration what’s going on with our kids. They are not doing everything on purpose; there are triggers causing them to behave that way.

They behave that way because they lack the appropriate skills for task completion. They may not be getting enough reinforcement. We just really have to take a look at the situation in a different and bigger perspective as it is multifaceted.
