Newark, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/18/2014 -- Parents and teachers can help children to succeed in the classroom, even if a child is pre-disposed to symptoms of ADHD. Children are being diagnosed with ADHD at younger and younger ages, often being prescribed strong stimulant medications for ADHD, even in preschool. However, much can be done in the classroom and at home to help children. Parents should set firm but reasonable limits at home. Teachers note that children benefit from one-on-one attention at home and in the classroom.

Parents and caregivers, give children one-on-one attention after school. Spend time with young children, read to them, take them to the park and let them burn off energy, help them with their homework, make sure they are keeping up with their homework, and regularly communicate with their teacher. This can help circumvent negative patterns that may be developing in favor of positive adjustments.
