Handling the child with minimal brain dysfunction
Concentrate on the positive aspects of your child; making her feel a failure and comparing her with others will only add to her problems.
Many children who have trouble learning academic subjects are extremely good at practical skills â” encourage them.
For some children tuition in a special school or class is best; for others remedial teaching at school is sufficient.
A lot of time, money and effort can be wasted on the wrong treatment – have the child expertly assessed before going to a private therapist.
Hyperactive children need a planned, stable routine because they cannot control one for themselves. Make a time for homework, a special time for you to read to her and to discuss the day’s events. When you give instructions, keep them simple and precise, repeating the key points.
