June 2012 Newsletter
June 22, 2012
To me, summer is a time to interact with others (the great weather helps!) and to stretch myself to try new things.  A time to take a break, perhaps travel a bit, and to spend some "down time" with kids and family...maybe even take on a project I've been putting off forever.  I hope it is the same for you, and that it brings you a sense of rejuvenation.

This month's newsletter reflects that sensibility.  It highlights many opportunities to connect (including with Dr. Hallowell at the Cape Cod Institute), provides information about organization, taking time with family, and more.  We hope you enjoy the richness of resources we've collected for you and that they enliven your summer.

FAQs

  

Q:  My 11 year old son with ADHD is eager to try sleep away summer camp but I worry that he'll be teased or ostracized. Despite his enthusiasm, he's somewhat socially awkward and kids at that age can be tough. What do you think?  

 
A:  It's great that he is interested in being so independent and I hope you embrace that, even if you feel some qualms! If you're worried about the quality of his experience, consider a camp that understands kids with ADHD.  I won't reinvent the wheel here - ADDitude Magazine has a good guide, and advice, for camps that are ADHD friendly. Dr. Hallowell's ADHD Summer Enrichment Camp @ Leelanau, July 16-20th is another option. Read here about the benefits of combining drug treatment for ADHD with an intensive Summer Camp.  Also, consider talking with the director of the camp to which you will send your son to make sure that he or she is aware of your concerns. But if he thinks he's ready to go, by all means, send him!
 
Q: How can I train my ADHD children to control their impulsive speech? It sure is a big problem for me. We talk about it, and the next day, it happens again." 
 
A:  Controlling impulsive speech can be helped signficantly with medication if your child can take it without negative side effects. Medication helps balance the brain chemistry - when it works it improves focus, and can help children slow down their minds enough to be able to "think" before they speak.  They can also practice "waiting" by teaching themselves to count to three to consider before speaking. 
 
Also good nutrition, i.e. a diet which is low in sugars and contains protein and vegetables, can also help diminish the symptoms of ADHD somewhat, which may help with the impulsivity you describe. (Sodas are not a great idea for kids with ADHD - too much sugar.)  Fish oil supplements can also improve ADHD symptoms.  Kids can take up to 2500 mg a day. Find more suggestions at Dr. Hallowell's ADHD Diet Menu.
ADHD and Summer ..... Get Organized Now!

Summer is a great time to catch up on your sleep... and tan, but it is also a great time to figure out how to better organize yourself and your family before the fall. Becoming well enough organized is a realistic goal for even the most disorganized ADD-er. I urge you to make this your goal, or your child's goal. I see people suffering and wasting time as they fruitlessly try to become someone they can't possibly become: a thoroughly organized person. Instead, I urge you to adopt my approach. Become well enough organized to reach your goals.

I recommend you set aside one hour a week (two hours to begin with to see if your measures work) while your life is less hectic and experiment incorporating different options.  Everyone with ADHD needs help with organization but the key is to find solutions that you will use long term.

Technology aids: Smart phones can be very helpful, if you learn how to use them, and not the other way around!  Here are some options to consider:
CrazyBusy Tips - my new app for the iphone guides you to determine what you value the most in your life, analyzes whether you are putting your time into these priorities, and then provides specific suggestions on how to live the life you want. Plus it has brain games to keep you sharp, and tools, timer, etc, to keep you on task.
DUE - This iPhone app helps you remember to do something at a certain time and will nag you to do it. You can set your phone to alert you to do a task at a specific time (e.g., 30 minutes from now, 3pm) and it will remind you and not let up until the task done.
MotivAtor - You or your child wears this on your person and it sends you reminders via vibrations at a timed interval of your choice.

Non-Technology: If you are just starting on the journey to better organization, printed calendars are better for you. Nancy Snell, an ADHD coach, encourages you to carry a printed calendar with you at all times. Read her advice here.
Getbuttonedup.com Offers FREE free-form or calendar templates. There are lots of great colorful templates for organization and time management goals. 

I discuss more on organization in my book Delivered from Distraction. Chapter 42, Getting Well Enough Organized: The Hallowell Approach, gives more details on my suggestions and recommendations.

Should you keep an ADHD kid organized in the summer or leave them to their own passions/ purpose? Children with ADHD need structure, even in the summer. This article from ADDitude gives pointers on how to help establish routines, in a fun way.

Parents can Provide Experiences That May Lead to Enduring Reductions in ADHD Symptoms    

 

Medications and behavior therapy provide short-term symptomatic relief for children with ADHD.  The benefits persist only if they are actively in use.

As we learn more about the underlying neurocognitive contributors to ADHD, we also learn that brain development is highly responsive to environmental influences. Diet, exercise, varying degrees of structure, and many other external factors can influence the development and expression of ADHD in children. Biofeedback, neurofeedback and working memory training are other examples of outside interventions that can make positive, sustained changes in the brain. Modifications in one's environment and experience made in the early years can prevent symptoms from escalating later in life.

A very interesting and important study was recently published in the Journal of Attention Disorders [Halperin et al., (2012) called: Training executive attention and motor skills: A proof-of-concept study in preschool children with ADHD.  29 four and five-year old children diagnosed with ADHD and their parents participated in a new intervention called TEAMS - Training Executive, Attention, and Motor Skills.' TEAMS was designed to "...apply frequent and enduring positive environmental stimulation to underlying neuro-developmental processes in children with ADHD." The theory behind TEAMS was that this would promote underlying changes in neural functioning that would lead to enduring improvements in ADHD symptoms.

Parents learned to engage in specific game-like activities with their child that placed increasingly challenging demands on a variety of neuro-cognitive and motor skills. For example, "Simon Says" to target inhibitory control, remembering shopping lists and hiding games to help train working memory. Games addressing visual-spatial abilities, planning, organization, sustained attention and motor skills were also included in the meetings.  Between group meetings, parents were instructed to spend 30-45 minutes each day playing these games with their child.  Pre- and post training ratings were taken to compare whether changes in their child's functioning had an enduring effect.


The Study is only an initial 'proof of concept' as there was no control group, a small sampling and no formal assessments, however despite these limitations, the results showed that the parents enjoyed, and therefore continued, the games after the completion of the intervention sessions and that there were significant reductions in parent and teacher ratings of ADHD symptoms that continued after the 3 month follow up. The authors are planning a larger, randomized trial to determine the potential benefits of TEAMS. 
 
Executive functioning (EF) training can begin early on with parents as good models for planning, prioritizing, organizing self-regulating one's behavior and working memory. However, from my reports from parents and kids time spent on EF is slipping for several reasons. For example, dinnertime table talk with at least one parent present is one of the best venues for learning to think critically, discussing successes and failures from the day, problem-solving, questioning assumptions, accountability, or negotiating a better allowance. Seemingly ordinary talk, but from these kinds of discussions sprout the seeds of EF - so crucial to success in life.

Coach's Corner
 
It's a Maintenance Problem

The other morning as I hauled myself down the stairs to get ready for my day, I looked down at my bare feet and noticed that the nails on my two big toes were bright red and beautifully polished and the 4 toes to the left and the right of them were in their natural unpolished state. It was a pretty stark, surprising (and yes, hilarious) contrast. My first thought, besides how ridiculous I would look on some posh poolside, was "it's a maintenance problem." And then, in my waking-up morning haze, I started thinking about how most people struggle with maintenance in some area of their lives and how people with ADHD can be very challenged by it.

Maintenance is just a fancy way to talk about how to keep doing what works for you.  As a coach, I work with my clients on setting up routines and structure that help them support maintenance on behaviors that are important to them. For the person with ADHD, this often means setting up structure in the environment to remind you to do what you KNOW you need to do.  A note by your toothbrush might remind you to pack your gym clothes so you will have them with you when you go to the gym later in the day or an alarm on your phone might remind you to check your calendar and plan your time for the rest of the day. What are the structures in your environment that remind you to do what you want to do?  Is there another structure you could add to support doing something that you are having a hard time doing?


One of the keys to keeping structure going is noticing that you have gone off course and restarting the helpful structure.  For the individual with ADHD this can be a challenge.  Working with a coach regularly can help you develop skills to notice what you are doing, what works, how to keep doing what works, and how to restart what works for you when you stop doing it.  What is one thing you can restart that will help you do what you do more often?
