ADHD Awareness Week: Fact Seven

ADHD Awareness Week is October 14 – 20, 2012.  We were chosen to parent a child with ADHD, so this week is all about awareness and giving you a peek into our world.  There are seven facts listed on the ADHD Awareness Week web page that I thought I would share this week – one each day.  Here’s fact seven

Fact #7: ADHD treatment is multi-faceted.

Here’s the great thing about ADHD:  There are so many different strategies to try!

Here’s the challenging thing about ADHD:  There are so many different strategies to try!

Medication – PRO: Focus is on!  CON: Side effects.

Therapy – PRO: Meant to be short-term and gives strategies that can improve behavior, organization, and focus.  CON: Finding a therapist who works well with cubs.

Diet – PRO:  Natural is always best.  CON: Can take months to figure out what foods to avoid.

Remember those puzzle pieces I talked about earlier?  Treatment – and our cub’s reaction to the treatment – is what the puzzle is all about.

Peace and Blessings!
