Every child faces emotional difficulties from time to time, as do adults.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
- having trouble focusing or concentrating on tasks
- being forgetful about completing tasks
- being easily distracted
- having difficulty sitting still
- interrupting people while they’re talking
When a child is acting out—disrupting activities, ignoring rules, goading others or erupting in defiance at being told “no”—the entire family feels the impact. You may feel helpless to control your child’s restlessness or anger, unsure how to respond or at a loss as to how to return some sense of stability and normalcy to the family environment.
The common treatment for language disorder is speech and language therapy. Treatment will depend on the age of your child and the cause and extent of the condition. For example, your child may participate in one-on-one treatment sessions with a speech-language therapist or attend group sessions. The speech-language therapist will diagnose and treat your child according to their deficits.
Early intervention often plays an important role in a successful outcome.
