A team advises on all issues
Between six and seven per cent of all children suffer the attention- and hyperactivity disorder ADHD. On La Palma, concerned parents in the have Asociación Besay de Trastorno por deficit de Atención e Hiperactividad (TDAH) joined together. As everywhere in the world is one stronger together. President Carlos Díaz tells of life with ADHD kids.
ADHD is the most common psychiatric disorder in children and adolescents. There are children, which have only an attention deficit, others are just hyper active, and some suffer from both disorders. Besay President's daughter belongs to the latter group and is today an adult. Carlos Díaz reported, It is not easy for the families, To detect ADHD at all:
Our daughter was seven years old, for us, it became clear, that it was more than just home a whirlwind. She remained in the school not in place, always ran around and could not concentrate. For many parents, this is how, the concern often starts with the school age, If no longer deny themselves can be, that children have an attention deficit.
ADHD is diagnosed, is there help. The Canary Islands Government provides resources for ADHD sufferers, including funds for expensive sessions with the psychologist. It has also issued a decree, of this particularly quirlingen children and young people in school grants special rights, as Carlos:
Is ADHD children during class work longer than the other students at the disposal. Additionally, the teacher can, to examine them orally instead of in writing, They then often much better cut. Unfortunately this is not always done, There are schools, you know the problem and want to work with us, and there are other. If a teacher is not observed the adoption, Parents have the opportunity, to display this violation at the Ministry of education.
But he wants such extreme 2004 Club was founded in Besay actually avoid. Its members rely on diplomacy, go to schools and talk to the teachers, to enlighten about ADHD. Also inform the "Socios" repeatedly at exhibitions or stands on the developmental disorder, where they are supported by the Island Government of La Palma. 2016 the project was "No. nos ignores": TDAH"launched. This appeal is aimed against the ignorance not only at the interested public, but concerned parents. Carlos knows, that ADHD kids on La Palma, often with their hard multisize "Super powers" be left alone:
On the island there is than about many more children with ADHD 50 Members of our Association. But many do not want to enter, they do not want, that other people know. Some don't even give their children the special medicines, but is itself left simply - I know of cases, because 16 year old drinking every day. While the medications for ADHD kids are constantly improved and bring great success along with a customized treatment. For example, my daughter has successfully completed the school and parallel made a training as a gardener in the last three years at the Collegio.
Medication and psychological treatment can make a difference. Especially the hyperactivity goes back the Besay President according to, If the children are greater. The lack of ability to concentrate could not be resolved. Carlos must have today like yesterday keeps an eye on his daughter:
The problems grow with age. You have to be very careful, in particular with regard to smoking, Drink or drugs. Because ADHD kids can say no and then stop. Therefore, they are also the perfect victims for sects or criminal - the prisons are full of people with ADHD. Also, they have no sense of time, Therefore, they are always late and never as agreed to come home - you must always accompany them to important dates. In addition, ADHSler tend to, always something to lose. As children are erasers or pencils, but as adults they no longer find the car keys or your Passport then.
This happened affected people of course also of this disorder. But not to the extent. And so, constantly necessary supervision requires the parents of ADHD kids up in adulthood of course to the extreme. Carlos Díaz can tell many a tale:
My daughter lives with me still at home. And today as yesterday she brings me and my wife at our borders. The constant force destroyed many families - the 60 Per cent of involved parents separate.
Therefore, Carlos Díaz as President of Besay invites the parents to a conversation. Because together with other stakeholders, the burden can be worn easier, and also the members of the Association, the track help diagnostic, Medication, Therapy and applying to embark of guelders.
