Children with autism, specifically those diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder are more fortunate now compared to those who had to with it in the 90s. This era provides more awareness and knowledge on how to manage kids with autism.

In an article published by ODT, they said that it wasn't until recently that people with ADHD were given more information to cope up with their situation. In the past, it was so hard for them to live a healthy life, especially when doctors couldn't even distinguish what it is exactly that is wrong with them. Take the life of Wellington resident, Julie Hanify. She was diagnosed to have ADHD at the age of 43. Her life could have been easier if it was detected at an early age. But she was grateful enough that it was even diagnosed at all because now, she is learning how to cope living with ADHD.

Most of the time, kids with ADHD have a difficulty at school, as they find it hard to get the lessons that their teachers are trying to convey. You would be surprised how kids with ADHD could get an F, but after some treatment, they would bounce back and get straight As. Focusing is a huge problem for them and this is often the reason why it would be so hard for ADHD kids to get good grades and worse is when they grow up and start getting a job.

According to the site of CDC, behavior therapy is one way to manage children with ADHD. This kind of treatment is not just for the child but for the parent handling it as well. They will be given proper instructions on how to motivate their kids and strengthen their skills. Talk to your pediatrician regarding ADHD and how your child should go treatment once he is diagnosed.
