Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Learning Disabilities

When a mind is tangled in a web of confusion it is often difficulty for the person to focus, which is an element required to learn. Conclusions in studies state that Attention Deficit Disorders are the most commonly known learning disabilities worldwide. Some of the symptoms include, difficulty focusing on tasks or even fun time, and difficulty with hearing.

ADHD symptoms include, organizing difficulties, short tension spans, and forgetfulness. Most persons with AHDD endure frequent carelessness, loss of property, and difficulty staying afloat. They will also suffer difficulties in concentrating on one task at a time.

Attention Deficit Disorders may include hyperactivity, and difficulty staying in one spot for longer than an hour. They are often overactive, excessive speaking out of turn, fidgety, relentless energy, and interruptive.

We can break the symptoms down to see how learning difficulties fall into place. Since, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) includes hearing difficulties, which affects balance. Hand and eye coordination impairments and other elements will hinder the person from learning.

We must consider special tactics to help these individuals learn according to their ability.

Often when a person has Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorders the doctors will prescribe medications, including Ritalin and Adderall. Now we have another problem, since the medications work to a degree, but add more to the problem by including harmful side effects. In fact, Canada recently placed a law against prescribing Adderall XR. After reporting of deaths came in, the Canadian Law prohibited the sales of Adderall XR, which was utilized worldwide treating thousands of individuals with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders.

Since the prescription, drugs are causing more harm than good it is wise to learn more about natural herbs that enhance the person’s ability to function properly. Flavay? is one of the most common natural herbs that have proven to enhance learning abilities in people that suffer ADHD.

Flavay is safe and works to enhance mental alertness, which improves the person’s ability to concentrate. Flavay contains helpful substances, such as Vitamin E, C, and Zinc. Vitamin E is required to promote healthy fat cell membranes, and Vitamin C enhances the body’s requirement of selenium. Zinc was added to the natural herb.

Since studies have shown that Attention Deficit Hyperactivity individuals lack sufficient fatty acids and zinc to promote a healthy mind. Other helpful herbs include Spectrient and Concentrated Omega-3. Fish oils have also been found to help children suffering with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders.

We can stop here, since as I write I look back at my son’s growing years and see an inconsistency in studies, research, and so forth. According to studies, Attention Deficit Disorders start at youth and continue throughout a child’s lifetime. It is said that the disorder is genetic. This is where I have to stand up and make a statement, since when my son was four or five he showed no signs of ADHD.

In fact, my son showed no signs of this diagnose until he was around the age of thirteen years of age. It has been difficult for my children since we all suffered tremendous mistreatment throughout our lifetime. However, my children have praised me numerous times for helping them to grow even though times were difficult.

I see something in a memory that has not been mentioned before at least as far as I know. My youngest son became a victim of his older brother who is diagnosed properly with Obsessive-compulsive disorder. He was also diagnosed with Oppositional Defiance Disorder.

His diagnoses included Antisocial Disorder, and Impulsive Control Disorder. Finally, his diagnose included Intermittent Explosive Disorder and Psychopathic Tendencies. I cannot think of the times I had to call law enforcements to help me deal with this child. Now, my youngest son was passive, observant, and quiet until he took enough from his older brother. As you can see hereditary does not fit in this story.

This leads me to believe and hold firm that the central nervous system, which is affected after abuse is the single largest key to unlocking the doors of ADHD. This information should push researchers to find answers to questions, no one has found to date. I see a pattern here that tells me that Attention Deficit Disorders may be invoked if a person endures trauma.

Finally, we can see that learning takes care, consideration, responsibility, and a lot of tough love to help these children learn.
