Re: All About ADHD : Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

My friend went there. Don’t waste your money. Hi, Has anyone engaged child psychologist Dr Wilson Chan or used the Gifted Lab @ Balmoral Plaza for ADHD assessment or full cognitive test? Charges sound more reasonable than others but not sure the level of accuracy. Does anyone have a child with ADD(...

Re: All About ADHD : Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

I have ADHD too. One of its strengths, as I like to explain to my clients, is that it allows one to see order in chaos. Does that resonate with any of you?

Re: All About Dyslexia

I would advise getting intervention, e.g. through the DAS. A good therapist should be able to spot what your boy's underlying weaknesses are and patch those gaps.

Re: All About Teaching Values

Parents tend to think that children are naturally loving and generous with their affection. This is true, but for loving sentiments to last, they need to be reciprocated. It's chilling to realize that over the course of a typical busy day, the phrase "I love you" is probably the one that a child is...

Re: How to motivate your child to read independently?

Have you noticed that kids seem to follow their parents' footsteps? It's no surprise, because at that young age, they are looking for an example to follow. Just be an example to them by reading what you like in front of them and I'm sure they will pick it up after a while. Oh yeah, cannot stress en...

Re: Upset with home math tutor

Re: [World Health Organization] Limited or No Screen Time for Children Under 5

Yup, parents have to be very firm about certain boundaries. You wouldn't allow your child to do something that could potentially cause themselves serious harm, so excessive or unpermitted usage of the phone or tablet should be no exception too. That being said, it's also important for parents to rem...

Re: Child Easily frustrated

Teach the stoplight with deep breathing. You’ve probably heard a lot about the power of deep breathing lately, and for good reason. When done properly, deep breathing can calm a child’s senses and help that child work through a frustrating event without resorting to screaming. Aye, breathing right ...
