Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a condition that some people experience. ADHD manifests itself through numerous symptoms which may include one or more of the following: hyperactivity, impulsiveness, distractibility, lack of organisation, forgetfulness and procrastination.
ADHD impacts school-aged children and results in restlessness, acting impulsively, and lack of focus which impairs their ability to learn properly. It is the most commonly studied and diagnosed psychiatric disorder in children, affecting about 3 to 5 percent of children globally and diagnosed in about 2 to 16 percent of school-aged children. It is a chronic disorder with 30 to 50 percent of those individuals diagnosed in childhood continuing to have symptoms into adulthood. Adolescents and adults with ADHD tend to develop coping mechanisms to compensate for some or all of their impairments. It is estimated that 4.7 percent of American adults live with ADHD. In most cases children with AD/HD have wonderful, creative minds, minds that they don’t have control of. A common perception of suffers of ADHD is that they either could not control their mind or their minds controlled them. This often becomes a belief about their capabilities, which effects their abilities to learn causing them to lose interest and value in learning. As the child ages they would start to develop beliefs about their own identity about being “weird” or “different”. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a way of understanding how we use language to program our brain. NLP helps us understand how we process the information that comes into our brains and how we create a simplified version of our experiences in our minds.
