Question

Q.

Reading material for ADD

ADD and ADHD is often lumped together, but my son is not hyper. Can you recommend reading material for improvement of attention, as well as sensible nutritional guidelines.

Kids will read what interests them so  get him to read anything and everything that interests him first – even comics and magazines as once he is hooked into reading he will develop his focus. Also set him easy to manage time targets (read for 5 minutes, then build to 10 etc). In terms of nutrition – lots of fruit and veg – as fresh as possible.  And have him checked out for gluten and lactose intolerances. Also keep him away from processed foods, sugary drinks (encourage him to drink water), caffeine, tartrazine, MSG, sweets and the like. Keep his diet as healthy as possible and offer treats only occasionally.
