Douglas E. Severance, MD
Family Medicine
To connect with your child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), it is important to accept the child completely. Let your child know how much you love them. Find activities you can do together and praise your child for even small attempts at a new task. Help your child develop social skills, which can help her get along with peers at school or at play.

In addition, determine your child's strengths and find ways to help them use these attributes to boost their confidence and self-esteem.
