What is ADHD?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a biologically-based behavioral condition that impacts the management systems of the brain called executive functions. These functions include impulse and emotional control, working memory, initiation, time management, planning, organization, flexibility, sustained attention, and self-evaluation.

How to Use the Deck

The ADHD Solution Deck gives you practical tools to help kids with ADHD improve their abilities for regulating words and actions, managing feelings, initiating, planning, organizing, staying on task, improving working memory, increasing focus, and learning self-awareness.

The deck is divided into five color-coded suits to reflect the 5C’s approach:

Self- Control – Manage your own feelings first so you can act effectively and teach your child with ADHD to do the same.

Compassion – Meet your child where they are, not where you expect them to be, with empathy and patience that’s appropriate to their stage of development.

Collaboration – Work together with your child to find solutions to daily concerns, using a “we” attitude instead of a “you should” approach. Make agreements about solutions with their input. Focus on changing one thing at a time.

Consistency – Do what you say you will do, as much as possible, without expecting perfection from yourself or your child. Aim for steadiness. Nurture your child’s efforts to do their best and focus on cause-and-effect learning. Notice and acknowledge what’s working by continuously offering words and actions ofnencouragement, praise, and validation. Identify traits, behaviors, or skills at which your child excels and nurture them.

Celebration – Notice and acknowledge what’s working by continuously offering words and actions of encouragement, praise, and validation. Identify traits, behaviors, or skills at which your child excels and nurture them.

You can select a card at random at any given time for guidance and support or work in a specific category for a period of time. Learning new skills takes time and practice, so plan to revisit the cards.
