Patient discussion about academic

Q. I am worried about his academics…Can he learn in the same way like other children of his age? Hi, this is Olivia, My only son aged 11 is diagnosed as ADHD. He has tough time and is attention deficient. I am worried about his academics…Can he learn in the same way like other children of his age?

A. Hi Olivia, normally for parents and teachers it is hard to deal with ADHD children. Learning is going to be touch but possible with the help of specialist instructors. While some of them turn out to be average few of them really turn out to be rewarding students. Students with disabilities, of any kind, are a challenge to teachers. One of the students at a school that I've taught was diagnosed with ADHD several years ago. He's eight years old, and has been on medication for the last three years. Getting him to focus was, for his instructor, like pulling teeth.

Q. Need help for my son, 7 years.I am worried that his academic performance shouldn’t get affected. Need help for my son, 7 years. He doesn’t take his food in time. He likes milk a lot; say 3-4 glasses, especially in chocolate milk forms. He enjoys good health but he is thin and suffers from constipation. I am worried that his academic performance shouldn’t get affected.

A. Milk is good for kids. But consumption of abnormal volume could cause constipation. Consumption of more milk reduces the water intake which in turn paves the way for constipation. He needs to have balanced diet containing fats and carbohydrates to ensure weight gain. Make sure that he takes more of fruits and vegetables in his diet. Juice will provide with other nutrients like minerals as well give the required water content, which would reduce the constipation. Try this and if there be problem, consult your physician.
