Action point


Successfully treating children suffering from ADHD requires detailed input from their teachers.

Ask your child's teachers to write a short note on your child's behaviour and attention span in their homework book, especially regarding the class periods around break times and late in the school day.

This can be useful information for adjusting medication and dosages.

Head on over to our ADHD Centre for more on managing the condition.
