A very high number of adopted kids are ADHD
Both my boys have ADHD. I've read mothers that are stressed during a pregnancy or have low birth weight babies have a much higher chance of ADHD children. So how do you treat ADHD? My boys take drugs and that helps, but diet and therapy also help. I'm looking into biofeed back therapy, and diet. It also helps to find what your child is good at, and encourage this. Philip likes to work on his bike, so we are looking at a class to learn bike mechanics. Thomas wants to fly airplanes, so we are looking into glider plane lessons (you can take lessons when you are 14 years old). There are so many people telling them what they can not do...we have to help them find the stuff they can do!
