What is ADHD?

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a condition that affects a person's behaviour. A person with ADHD can seem restless, may act on impulse and may have trouble concentrating. The symptoms of ADHD tend to be noticed at an early age, and most cases are diagnosed when children are between 3 to 7 years old. Sometimes ADHD is not recognised when someone is a child, and can be diagnosed later in adulthood. Some symptoms of ADHD can improve with age, but many adults can continue to experience problems.

Symptoms in children and teenagers

Children may have symptoms of both inattentiveness and hyperactivity and impulsiveness, or they may have symptoms of just one of these types of behaviour.

The main signs of inattentiveness (difficulty concentrating and focusing) are: making careless mistakes; having a short attention span and being easily distracted; being unable to stick to tasks that are tedious or time-consuming; appearing forgetful or losing things; appearing to be unable to listen to or carry out instructions; constantly changing activity or task and having difficulty organising tasks.

The main signs of hyperactivity and impulsiveness are: constantly fidgeting; being unable to sit still, especially in calm or quiet surroundings; being unable to concentrate on tasks; excessive talking; excessive physical movement; being unable to wait their turn; interrupting conversations; acting without thinking; having little or no sense of danger.

These symptoms can cause significant problems in a child's life, such as problems with discipline, poor social interaction with other children and adults, and underachievement at school.

Advice for Parents

If you're looking after a child with ADHD, you may find this advice helpful:

  • Plan the day so your child knows what to expect. Setting routines can make a difference to how a child with ADHD copes with everyday life.
  • Set clear boundaries making sure that everyone knows what behaviour is expected, and reinforcing positive behaviour.
  • Give clear instructions, so your child knows what they need to do to create opportunities for praise when they get it right.
  • Set up your own incentive scheme using a points or star chart, so good behaviour can earn a privilege.
  • Intervene early if your child looks like they're becoming frustrated, overstimulated and about to lose self-control.
  • Keep social situations short and sweet. Invite friends to play, but keep playtimes short so your child does not lose self-control.
  • Make sure your child gets lots of physical activity during the day. Walking, skipping and playing sport can help your child wear themselves out and improve their quality of sleep.
  • Keep an eye on what your child eats. If your child is hyperactive after eating certain foods, which may contain additives or caffeine, keep a diary of these.
  • Stick to a clear bedtime routine. Make sure your child goes to bed at the same time each night and gets up at the same time in the morning.
  • Children with ADHD often have problems with their behaviour at school, and the condition can negatively affect a child's academic progress. Speak to your child's teachers or their school's Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO) about any extra support your child may need.

Tuition with a qualified ADHD teacher at your home in Lancashire costs from £46.00 ph. Online tuition with a qualified ADHD teacher costs from £40.00 ph. Create your own small tuition group and ADHD tuition costs from £17.50 ph.

Because we only ever work with qualified and experienced ADHD teachers in Lancashire, you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements. There is no excellent learning without excellent teaching, and our ADHD teachers are expected to teach in a way that inspires and motivates. We have over 20,000 talented teachers providing tuition, chosen for their broad range of experience, professionalism, academic specialisms, passion, and dedication to their students. We only ever offer qualified teachers as tutors, as we believe professional teachers provide the highest quality of tuition.

Location
Home Tuition: Involves an ADHD tutor coming to your home in Lancashire to provide one-on-one instruction. This offers convenience as you don't need to travel. Online Tuition: This can take place anywhere with an internet connection. Small Group Tuition: Typically with between 2 to 4 children, and often occurs in a physical location such as your home, though it can also be online.

Individual Attention
Home Tuition: Offers the highest level of individual attention, as the ADHD tutor focuses solely on one student. Online Tuition: Still allows for one-to-one attention, but it may be slightly less personal than home tuition due to potential distractions. Small Group Tuition: Offers less individual attention as the ADHD tutor must divide their time and attention among multiple students.

Cost
Home Tuition: This tends to be more expensive because it involves one-on-one teaching, and the ADHD tutor is required to travel to your home, in Lancashire. Online Tuition: Often more affordable than home tuition as your ADHD tutor does not need to travel but may still cost more than small group tuition. Small Group Tuition: Generally, this is the most cost-effective option, as the costs are shared among several families.

Flexibility
Home Tuition: Offers flexibility in terms of scheduling and curriculum, as your ADHD tutor will only be working with your child. Online Tuition: Provides flexibility in terms of location and may offer a wider selection of ADHD tutors. Small Group Tuition: Lessons will be more difficult to schedule as lesson times will have to fit in with other families.

Interaction
Home Tuition: Offers in-person interaction, which can be beneficial for students who learn better through face-to-face communication. Online Tuition: Provides interaction through video conferencing tools and chat, which can be engaging but may not suit everyone's learning style. Small Group Tuition: Allows for peer interaction, which can benefit collaborative learning and discussions.

The choice between home, online, or small group ADHD tuition in Lancashire depends on your preferences, budget, and the student's specific educational needs. Each option has advantages and disadvantages, so it's essential to consider these factors when deciding.
