If a parent has problems instituting a plan along these lines, seeking professional consultation may be in order. The professional can be a schoolteacher or a clinician. However, if the former already has ten percent of his or her class being treated for ADD, or the latter “specializes” in prescribing medication for ADD, be wary. Hang on tight to the concept that the ability to learn and concentrate is a skill that comes naturally only to a minority of the population. For the rest of us, it needs to be developed and refined through years of hard work and perseverance.
