Growing up I was fully aware that I had issues with concentrating, especially when it came to school work. My attention span was short, and at times my school performances suffered. It was not until I was older was I finally diagnosed with an Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).
Given my own history, I often wonder if this same disorder has been passed onto my son. While he is just barely 2 years old, and he could easily just be an energetic toddler, I couldn’t help but want to start to research disorders such as Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), which is quite similar to ADD. Research shows that ADHD affects 4%-12% of school-age children. Boys are actually diagnosed three times more often than girls. Worrying that may be down the line my son could suffer the same attention issues, I turned to the Lifescript.com Childhood ADHD Health Center. This amazing resource features everything from tips to articles to quizzes to recipes, all provided by professional health writers, experts and physicians, to assist you in managing your child’s ADHD.
If you are unfamiliar with Lifescript, it is an amazing website that aims to provide insight on healthy living for women. I was thrilled to see that they offered a whole section of the site covering ADHD. Have a medical inquiry?
