More about a “Strength Based” Approach…
The parent tip above recommends taking old negative attitudes about ADD/ADHD and turning them around so that a fresh attitudes can take root. As parents, facilitators or even ADHD sufferers ourselves, we must see the glass of traits as “half full” and work toward nurturing positive activities for the future…using positive strategies. People working to overcome ADHD challenges must give themselves a positive action to reach for, whether its Learning Breakthrough Program, running, art classes, sports, music or another drug-free therapy.
Such activities are the essence of a “strength-based” approach for learning challenges. They turn negatives into a positives. People with ADHD need support and hopeful, forward movement in their lives and people who look at them through a positive light and who do not inflict feelings of guilt and shame that are often connected with ADHD. Turn negative associations into positive and move to work on the strengths we seek, not the weaknesses we fear.
