ADHD.Part 2

Hello again, Munchkins!=)

As promised,I'll continue with the beauty part of ADHD in this post.

When we spoke of ADHD, a kid that is very hard to handle and be controlled comes to picture.

Well,not necessarily, see, ADHD does not involves intelligence or the mental capability. And many kids with ADHD really is intellectually and artistically gifted.

They have a lot to give...

a lot more than we think they're capable of.

Yes,the challenge in dealing with kids with ADHD can be very huge,or perhaps,unbearable. But there is something little that we know of these gifted kids.Something that is beyond our expectations of them.

Believe it or not,ADHD really have its own positive effects,it brought out the best out of the person.

Number 1 : Creativity
Oh yes,creativity. One thing about daydreaming is that you have this unlimited access of every part of the world you could possibly go. And kids with ADHD often daydreams. They see what others can't see. You can imagine what they are capable of doing when they have ten different thoughts at a time.

Number 2: Flexibility
No,they do not do acrobatic,whatsoever. You see, ADHD kids do not see things in particular since they have limited attention or focus.Good thing is that, they consider several other options at once,instead of sticking to one.

Number 3 : Enthusiasm and Spontaneity
Kids that are diagnosed with ADHD, they have limited attention span and interests on things, but the good thing is that, they have various interests. And thus,they are rarely boring. They are very much fun to be with since they tend to experiment things that we couldn't even imagine trying.

Number 4: Energy and Drive
When these kids with ADHD get their hands on the activities that really captures their interests, they really work their best in order to succeed or achieve the goal. They are very dedicated in doing what they do best.

See you on the next post!Keep reading!Oh,and don't forget to leave me a comment or any suggestions below.Lots of   !!
