How to Better Communicate
With Your ADHD Child
Communication with a child can be difficult regardless of the circumstances. However, communication can be even more difficult with a child who has ADHD. Individuals with ADHD often have weak executive function, making it more difficult for them to communicate. Emotional control can be a challenge. Therefore communication often comes out as overly emotional and not always rational.
So, how can we effectively communicate with children who have ADHD? Additude magazine recently did an article on How to Talk to Students with ADHD. This article focuses specifically on strategies that are effective in the classroom; however, they are also useful strategies that can transition into the home environment as well.
