Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Learning Disabilities


You cannot focus when the mind is confused. ADD[attention deficit disorder] is a common learning disability throughout the world. You cannot focus on a single task in  case of ADHD. You find it very difficult to hear in ADHD. ADHD people have short attention spans. They forget easily.

Persons afflicted with ADHD become careless. They suffer losses. They have loss of propriety.  They cannot concentrate and are hyperactive. They are restless and cannot stay put. They are interruptive, violent  and unwittingly hurt others feelings. This is  because  they do not know what and when to speak. These people lose their balance of mind. Such people do not have proper hand and eye coordination. As a result they are not able to learn properly.

You need to be tactful and help these people learn as per their ability. Doctors prescribe Ritalin and Adderall as medicines for  ADHD cases. These medications work up to a certain degree. They have harmful side effects. Canada has passed a law against prescription of Adderall XR, after there were reports of deaths on account of the drug. This drug is banned in Canada but is used throughout the world to treat ADHD.

Natural herbs are better than prescription drugs because they are safer They increase ability in ADHD cases. Flavay TM is a common natural herb. It is a safe drug. It increases mental acuity and concentration.  The drug contains  contains vitamin C,E and zinc. Vitamin E makes fat cell membranes healthy. Vitamin C increases selenium in the body. Zinc has been added to this drug. ADHD individuals lack fatty acids and zinc. These elements are important for a healthy mind. Drugs containing omega 3 fatty acids are very useful in treating ADHD cases. Fish oils are an important source of Omega 3.

I look back at the growing years of my son. He became inconsistent in studies. He suffered from ADHD when he was young. It lasted for a long time. Studies say the disorder is genetic. My sun was stricken with ADHD when he was 14. He did not show any signs  before this. My son praises me because I stood with him in difficult times. Actually, my son became a victim of oppositional defiance disorder.

After a thorough diagnosis, my son showed antisocial disorder with  psychopathic tendencies. Sometimes he even took the law in his own hands.

After my experience with with my son I can easily say that if you can control a sufferer's mind than the battle is won. Research on ADHD has not found a complete cure for the affliction.
