One thought on “Medicating Class Cut-Ups But Overlooking the Rest

  • August 20, 2012 at 1:54 pm

    I tried the ritalin to no avail and I agree meds are not the way to go. My daughter is 8 and has ADHD. I use a neurofeedback/edufeedback program called Play Attention (playattention.com). This program was developed by a teacher for parents and teachers as well. We use it before homework time (which was unbearable) and when she cannot focus and is not calm. She likes to play it so much that I am now using it as a reinforcement tool. I have seen immediate results and I am so happy I changed over to this platform. It also gives me the interaction with her and control over the behavior whereas the medication did not. Once they wore off she became lethargic and just as out of control. It has shaped her behavior and I believe in a few years she will live a normal and happy life without using anything except her own mind! I can’t say enough about it.
