Hyperactive children

It is said that hyperactive children have learning difficulties:

WHAT ARE THE LEARNING DIFFICULTIES

Learning disabilities are a set of disorders that impair a child’s ability to learn. This expression is multifaceted and refers to a large and heterogeneous group of disorders that manifest themselves with significant difficulties in acquiring and using listening, speaking, reading, writing, reasoning or even mathematical abilities.

These disorders can be divided into the following groups:

BEHAVIOR: (Example: ADHD, autism). 
COLLECTION: (Example: Low IQ). 
SKILLS: (Example: speech, writing, reading).

Many factors are involved in the diagnosis and treatment of learning difficulties.The reason is that the problem of learning difficulties is complex and multifactorial.So for the diagnostic track a child with learning disabilities may need to be examined by an Ophthalmologist to see if the child is seeing well, an ENT to determine if the child is hearing well, and a Pediatrician to determine if the child has learning difficulties some neurological condition. In the area of ​​treatment and where no clear organic cause can be found to justify learning difficulties, these children often need to be monitored and supported by a Developmental Specialist in collaboration with (where appropriate) a special educator, speech therapist, project therapist and / or physiotherapist.

WHAT DO WE MEAN WHEN A CHILD IS TRANSFERRED

A child who is hyperactive is a child with increased motor activity and speech. He is a restless child who shakes hands and feet nervously and often gets up in the classroom without permission. There are criteria-based separation between the children who are given the disorder and the others who simply have similar symptoms.

WHEN WE ARE TALKING ABOUT: DEFICIT ATTACHMENT DISORDER AND MOTIVATION

ADHD is a disorder that affects a child’s ability to concentrate on what they are put to do. These children have three main symptoms:

Attention Deficit. They cannot concentrate on one particular 
activity especially when it is long lasting and tiring. 
Impulsivity. They answer questions before they are completed. They often make careless mistakes. They cannot wait their turn in a game. 
Hyperactivity. They have increased motor activity. They move up to eight times more than other children. How common 
ADHD phenomenon is: 
The disorder occurs in 3-5% of the total pediatric population, it is 3 to 9 times more common in boys than in girls.

BECAUSE OF DEFICIT CARE AND TRANSFERRAL DISORDER:

There is no specific known pathology but we assume that the dysfunction of some neurotransmitters is responsible for the appearance of ADHD. Around 75% of children with ADHD have at least one relative with the same diagnosis. In addition to heredity, there are exogenous factors that can cause ADHD such as exposure to environmental toxicants, smoking and maternal alcohol use during pregnancy, prematurity and brain injury.

WHAT IMPLICATIONS HAVE FOR THE CHILD:

A child with ADHD has severe adjustment problems, cannot perform as expected, and suffers from poor self-esteem as he cannot complete missions, even simple tasks. Children with ADHD who are referred for diagnosis face difficulties at school. Of these, a percentage of 30-50% may remain in the same class while about a third are at risk of not finishing school.

HOW IS ADHD TAKEN:

Stable frame. 
Stable quiet environment for the child to concentrate. 
Pedagogical support. 
Medical Support.

DRUGS, NEVER:

Stimulants of the Central Nervous System are used to treat ADHD. These include some potent or similar drugs of the amphetamine type which mainly inhibit noradrenaline neurotransmitter uptake. These medicines are made so that the patient is not addicted to them. The use of medication is always complementary to special education and psychological support for the child.
