AD(H)D typical symptoms

Attention Mastery Program, in my personal practice, makes up to 76% of the all programs conducted.

And at the first preliminary call, mothers often complain about the following symptoms:

- the first problems are noticed in early childhood or in the reception class of school,

- for a long time the child could not learn to speak/pronounce individual sounds, read,

- it was difficult to speak another language,

- difficulty expressing your thoughts when speaking,

- reads slowly, and has difficulty understanding and retelling what he read,

- difficulty solving problems in mathematics, does not always understand what mathematical operation needs to be applied,

- difficulty understanding instructions, especially long and multi-step ones,

- difficulty remembering information,

- problems with short working memory,

- difficult to focus on a task, constantly distracted,

- problems with spelling,

- studying is not a joy,

- restless and impatient,

- “lazy”, but if he wants, he can study well,

- dreamy, “having his head in the clouds”,

- loves to communicate, but it is not always possible to build harmonious relationships with peers,

- hot-tempered, sometimes to the point of hysterics,

- disorganized,

- impulsive,

- inattentive,

- his room is a mess,

- always late, difficulties with planning and implementation of plans,

- homework takes 3-5 times more time, than necessary,

- vulnerable, sensitive,

- smart, but cannot achieve academic results,

- very creative,

- can write great stories

- successful in activities where you can do without words: art, music, sports, dancing.

Most of these symptoms are always named by mothers, with slight variations.

Check if this is by chance about your child?
