adhd high iq


I think I have Adult ADHD and would like to tested?

I have done my research as well as several online evaluations for Adult ADHD. Every “test” I have taken suggests a proffessional evaluates me. I have a fairly high IQ and consider myself a pretty smart guy. The problem is that I have never been able to concentrate, and it seem that there are 100 thoughts bouncing around in my head at all times. I gave up reading b/c my mind wanders so much that I read the paragraphs 3 or 4 times before I can move on. It affected my college and High school years and defiantly my career. I have read up on ADHD and have discovered that almost every “symptom” discussed is a symptom that I have. However, I cannot seem to find where to start. I live in Ocala FL and would like some help with this. Thanks

I studied a lot about ADD/ADHD (same thing) in college and by what your saying I do believe you have it. But of course make sure you see a trained specialist and not diagnosis yourself. Most people with ADD are very smart people, they just don’t know how to apply there knowledge when they need too. Nothing wrong with that because your probably really creative and have a lot of great ideas, A great trait to have. ADD has nothing to do with how smart you are so don’t let that bother you.

You’ll just get medication to help you focus which most ADD people see the first day they take it (I did!). It will really help you in life trust me.

Most people describe it by putting on glasses on for the first time and that is true.

Good luck!

adhd video games


Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and video games are a problem.

My almost 9 year old has ADHD, followed by the odd (Disorders of provoking the opposite). And PTSD (stress disorders post. tramatic) he spent XR Adderall 25mg once a day. All he needs to do is play on. PS2 or PC, or code gameboy, which will allow him out of trouble and he did not fight well with other children. Other (he is the oldest from 4) I worry that the game will hurt him because he does not want to spend more time with family I will not allow shooting or fighting game, so I knew that he was not. Behaviors that are not from them. His education will not suffer, he is actually pretty good at reading and he loves math. I worry about his behavior does not say much for his future. I have tried limited his time. In the game, but he was not playing when he is fighting with other children, or destruction. What is your advice.

While video games can certainly occupy. Your ADHD child that they can. overstimulating. My husband has ADHD and At 30, he still has a passion for video games because they give the brain to stimulate their focus. Thus, while He has lost focus on what most (I like to listen to:)) he can hyperfocus in video games because it has changed so quickly. He can take his game to play the video and in that time. It may not be the best thing for him will help him focus. As long as your children do well with his school work, it is OK to allow him to use video games to stop his work to organize his brain. He began to try to have more interest with the other kids by having them play video games with him in his first Then, try to find a board game or some other activity. That your child can do together. Participation in sports physical can help ADHD children. – Craves movement to team sports can really help. Baseball, football, basketball and more. Which requires a lot of movement and action. Can really help to organize children with ADHD.

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder technology



attention deficit hyperactivity disorder technology

Are there some video games used to test for autism?

There was a Reuter’s article, but I have not been able to access it.

I think this is what you’re talking about…there’s other sites that have info on it as well and those are listed below.
I hope this is what you were looking for.

Reuters Health
Thursday, May 10, 2007
By Lisa Baertlein

LOS ANGELES (Reuters Life!) – Bernard McCrory knows what happens when autism strikes and his company, Learning for Children, are selling video games to give children the help they may need.

As youngsters play the games the private U.S. company’s testing technology looks for signs of autism or dyslexia.

Parents who are haunted by a feeling that something just isn’t right with a child who avoids eye contact, resists cuddling, reacts extremely to changes in routine or has difficulty learning words or sentences, can use test results to plan their next step.

McCrory’s granddaughter played his company’s autism testing game and was later diagnosed with a mild form of Asperger syndrome, which falls within autism spectrum disorders.

“We’re really throwing up a flag that there may be a problem here,” said McCrory, who helped develop the testing technology at Caliber Learning Network , a Sylvan Learning Systems and MCI joint venture.

He and other executives were able to take the technology with them after the company went public in 1999 and have since invested about $2 million in the video game software.

Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder causing mild to severe developmental disabilities and, according to the advocacy group Autism Speaks, is diagnosed in 1 in 150 individuals.

The company said their games are not a replacement for professional medical testing, which can cost a few thousand dollars. Home and classroom versions of the games cost $50 and $90.

Children with autism often have trouble with spatial relationships and, in the game, will struggle to identify which hand a character is using to hold an object. They often are very good at naming numbers that come next in a sequence.

Youngsters with dyslexia, a learning disability affecting reading skills, will have trouble making words from scrambled letters or matching a picture of a cat to the word cat.

The autism testing game has won an endorsement from the Doug Flutie Jr. Foundation for Autism, started by the family of College Football Hall of Famer Doug Flutie.

Executive director Lisa Borges said early intervention is extremely important and that the software is an accessible tool for concerned parents.

Alex Wilkes was in that category about a year ago when her daughter played the autism testing game. The child, now four years old, was slow to start talking and didn’t make eye contact. Medical testing ruled out a diagnosis of Asperger syndrome and the game pointed to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

“She liked the games. To this day, she doesn’t know she’s been through any of this,” said Wilkes.

“It’s not a definitive diagnosis. CD’s don’t replace a doctor. I was just looking for some direction,” said Wilkes, who still plans to take her daughter to a doctor for testing.

adhd elementary school


I think I have ADHD?

I think I have ADHD. I find myself off-the-wall hyper, and forgetful. When i start something different I never seem to end it and forget about it easy. I will be talking, forget and change a subject. Do I have ADHD? How can I tell? Also, many of my previous elementary school teachers said I couldn’t sit still in class.

yeah, you do for sure. do you fail a lot of assignments in school? i was diagnosed with it when i was in 2nd grade(now i’m a junior in hs) and i didn’t want to take my medicine for a year not too long ago and i failed a lot. it’s genetic. if you have it and you have siblings, they will have a 50/50 chance of having it also. or since you have said elementary school..you’re in what grade now? it could be age related things. but mostly..
this is my symptoms of being ADHD

1. clumsiness
2. never sit still
3. always have to have something to do
4. forgetful
5. you don’t need to sleep as much as others
6. you’re too hyper to eat as much as you should
7. racing thoughts
8. total lack of concentration
9. you become a great multitasker over time(Trust me on this haha)

tell your parents about it, i’m sure they notice. some parents are in denial about their kids health because they think they did something wrong if we the kids have a little problem. but if someone on your dads side has it or your moms side, well then you have a high chance of it being true.
good luck kiddo!

Parents, you can. With children at home. Just remember the game of checkers as a child to learn problem solving strategies. (Let him change his, although he took his hand from the game pieces!).

Approximately 2,000,000. American children are affected by the disease lost interest. Hyperactivity – (ADHD), a classroom with children was a man. 3-5 times more likely to have ADHD symptoms of the disease started before age seven, and often continues as an adult.

There are three subtypes of ADHD: the inattentive hyperactive behavior no more; Hyperactive and impulsive with no problems, interests, and both accidental and hyperactive. / Impulsive with no testing. ADHD diagnosis, so requires time and expertise. Child psychologist or psychiatrist should be used because of this.

Low amplitude EEG?

I would like to know what conditions and diseases would lead to low voltage EEG activity, without consequential high EEG voltage actvity (not including brian death, cerebral infarction or strokes)?

This is not to be confused with EEG frequency.

The EEG biofeedback technique (Hyperactivity,
Attention Deficit Disorder, Specific Learning Disabilities,
and Other Disorders )
This technique appears to be quite successful in effecting remediation in hyperactivity, attention deficit disorder, specific learning disabilities, drug-resistant and other cases of epilepsy, in sleep disorders, and in cases of closed head injury. The effects of training appear to be permanent in most cases.

The unifying criterion underlying the conditions treated appears to be that they exhibit anomalous EEG properties. In a large fraction of the cases, these anomalous EEG properties are traceable to identifiable injury to the brain in the patient’s life history, including fetal drug exposure and birth trauma. Detailed family histories commonly indicate a genetic vulnerability or predisposition as well. At least partial normalization of the EEG is a demonstrated consequence of the biofeedback training in most cases. The clinical studies have considerably outdistanced the research to date, and clearly justify further research in order to put these findings on a sound basis, as well as to refine the technique and permit the determination of mechanisms. The generality of the technique suggests that we are dealing with a very fundamental mechanism of cortical regulation affecting areas of the brain beyond the sensorimotor cortex where training takes place.

What Are The Signs Of Adhd?

The signs of ADHD are the indicators that you have the Symptoms of ADHD.
You can find these indicators and help others find them to.
Doing this will give you the power to change your behaviour and take control of your ADHD.
Don’t quite follow?
Let me explain.

The Cold Analogy

A symptom of a cold is a runny nose.  
A sign of a cold is to blow your nose or have tissues in your pocket.

A symptom of the flu is chills
A sign of the flu is staying wrapped up in your bed.

A symptom of ADHD is impulsivity.  
A sign of ADHD is having your name written on the board for outbursts in the classroom.

Inattention is a symptom of ADHD.
Not understanding assignments because of inattention during a lesson is a sign of ADHD.

It can be a lot easier to pick up the signs of ADHD than the actual symptoms.  
The signs are everywhere.

As a child I was not aware of my symptoms of ADHD but I was very aware of the signs of ADHD in my life.  I was told I was inattentive, had outbursts and was hyper but I didn’t really know what that meant.
– I knew that my name was always on the front chalkboard for misbehaving.  
– I knew that teachers would constantly take me aside to talk about my poor behavior.  
– I knew my caretakers were often upset with me.
I knew I was in trouble, but I really didn’t know why.

Basically I just didn’t get it.

Mom was I good in church?

On Sunday mornings after church I would always ask my mother;
“Was I good in church?”
I was not aware enough to know if I was troublesome.  I did understand when my mother was feeling stress or upset when I was “bad”.  
I wasn’t able to connect that playing with the song books on the floor was a disruption during mass.  

It seems silly now, but as a child I didn’t get it.

Long Division and Becoming Aware

I was in my mid-20s talking with a friend who was a teacher, when I realized an important piece of the puzzle.

I asked her if she could teach me to do long division, since I had forgotten.   She patiently began the lesson. While she was explaining the steps,
I was constantly butting in,
making fun
and I kept interrupting her,
Naturally she became quite annoyed and stopped the lesson.

Bang!

For the first time I saw myself for being a disruption
It hit me.
I got it!

It was at this moment I realized how impulsive my behavior was.  
I saw myself interrupting,
Disrupting her lesson and being hyper.
As an adult I was being a jerk.
As a child I must have been,
a terror!?!?

I saw my own symptoms for the first time.
Before then never directly connected my signs of ADHD, like making teachers upset with my own impulsive and hyperactive nature.  

That was a huge turning point.
After that I knew I had to fix the problem.
I needed to learn as much about ADHD as possible to do so.  
I looked for signs of ADHD in my life so that I could take charge of my ADHD.

How to point out the Signs of ADHD in your life

It is important to note that these signs can also point to other mental or physical problems.  They may not always be ADHD.  
However, they are the initial step in becoming aware of your problems.  Take the time to think about your actions and ask for help too,
from family, from friends and even doctors.  

If these signs do point to ADHD, try this:
– As an adult with ADHD you can take it upon yourself to look for the signs of ADHD in your life.  Take note of the bad things that happen to you, the stuff that just doesn’t go right.

– As the parent with an ADHD child you can help them to see their signs too. Observe and point out the problems when they happen.

Spell it out as if you are talking to a 4 year old.  
In many cases you will be.

Track down the situations that are causing all of the problems.
This will pinpoint when you are having the most difficulty with your ADHD.

Knowing when the problems occur gives you the chance to change those situations directly.

The power to control your ADHD

Finding your unique signs of ADHD will give you the ability to recognize what you’re doing and help you pinpoint your ADHD symptoms.  

That is power my friend!

Now you know where to start.  
These are the first steps to changing those actions and taking control of your ADHD!

A good career for a devoted abstract thinker?

I’m looking for a career that will probably consume my life. I would like to work somewhat long hours. I prefer a job to keep my mind constantly busy. Long hours would be fine. Working by myself would be preferable but not necessary. Money doesn’t matter as long as i can survive. I am interested in all of the sciences, puzzles, and computers. (though not a very competitive career such as computer programming)

Basically, i just need something to keep me busy for life. I have ADHD and my grades are decent. I am 18. I am a very abstract thinker and philosopher).

Thank you very much.

Adhd Processing Speed Working Memory

adhd processing speed working memory


Top 10 Brain Enhancers

Perhaps you are getting older and are noticing a decline in your brain function; or you are a student preparing for a huge test; or you are just curious if there is anything you can do to enhance your brain function. Well the obvious answer is YES! We will discuss the top 10 things in no particular order.

We will start with sleep. Your brain needs a certain amount of time to rest in order to even begin functioning at its maximum capability. Think of it as hard drive that gets extremely fragmented in just one day of work, and if you don’t let it completely defrag, it’s just going to work slower the whole next day. So give your brain 8 hours to fully “defrag.”

One of the easiest things you can do to stimulate your brain is reading. Reading provides one of the most positive stimulations to your brain. It doesn’t even matter so much what it is that you read. Written words that require to be read rather than listened to (audio books will not work) involves a very deep process that stimulates both sides of your brain. As good as reading is there is something, that once mastered, stimulates your brain even more. It is called speed reading. Before you dismiss this as something that’s too hard or not worth the time investment, consider this. What if your that huge client case you have to read or the biology homework that would take you two hours to read was cut down by FIVE or more times. That means two hours of reading your biology homework now only takes just a bit over TWENTY minutes. Just imagine what you could do with the extra time. Not only that but all of the stuff you just read in that twenty minutes you will remember better and be able to recall easier than if you spent two hours doing it. This is real and ANYONE can do it. It does require patience, practice and a proper guide, we recommend Breakthrough Rapid Reading. With this new found ability you will be drastically more productive but more important is your brain stimulation will go through the roof.

One of the most important elements that the brain needs to function at its highest potential is oxygen. Spend 30 minutes doing cardiovascular exercises (running, biking, treadmill, etc.) and you will notice an amazing improvement in your brain function as your heart is able to distribute oxygen more easily throughout your whole body, including your brain, when you are cardio fit.

The food you eat is obviously important for your brain however which foods are best can sometimes be confusing. First one is wild caught fish; let me emphasize NOT farm raised but wild caught and even better sea fish such as salmon. Next are the two foods that will probably cause you to say huh? They are chocolate and coffee. Yes chocolate and coffee, BUT the chocolate has to be 100% organic, 75% cocoa bean or more, in other words very dark chocolate and the coffee has to be 100% organic freshly ground coffee. We need to emphasize that it must NOT have any preservatives and USDA organic is not good enough; it must be 100% organic. Other good brain foods are whole grain breads, eggs, fresh salads, and fruit; especially blueberry.

Supplements and drugs are somewhat controversial because of the possible side effects nevertheless this editorial would be incomplete without the mention of these. First is hgh, or human growth hormone. Once we get into our twenties our body’s natural production of hgh declines exponentially. As youngsters we are able to learn a new language, perform mathematical functions, memorize and many more brain intensive functions significantly easier than when we get into the later years, and research proves that hgh is the single most important determinant of this ability. HGH is the only one that can be taken naturally without the risk of side effects. Modafinil is a prescription only drug used to treat narcolepsy and other sleep disorders. Research shows that patients who use Modafinil show better memory retention as well as other increased brain function. Modafinil does carry with it some significant side effect concerns including death in case of overdose and addiction therefore it is something that should only be taken with caution and on rare occasion. Ritalin is another prescription only drug that is used primarily for ADHD and has very similar benefits and concerns as Modafinil.

Brain puzzles such as Sudoku, crosswords, chess and certain others are great ways to stimulate your brain function. These games or puzzles should be difficult enough to solve/beat to where it takes significant effort to do so. Where they are too easy or too hard will accomplish little in the way of brain stimulation, although too hard is better than too easy. Each type of puzzle tends to stimulate a different part of the brain, such as Sudoku is more mathematical and pattern based, crossword tends to stimulate the language and memory, while chess tends to stimulate the logical and strategic part. Therefore it is important to understand this when choosing your puzzle(s).

Learning something new may be one of the best ways to stimulate those who are past their school years. This something new should be something that you will enjoy learning otherwise it may do little in the way of stimulation. A new hobby is a great start. Learn how to make that patio you’ve been dreaming about for ages, and actually make it. Perhaps plan a trip to a country whose native language is not a language that you now speak. Then proceed to learn that language to near fluent status, perhaps make it even more motivational by making the trip a reward for learning the new language.

Music and brain stimulation remains somewhat of a controversial topic, however it is now widely accepted and confirmed by research that certain types of music will cause your brain to function at a different level. There is some new research of brain waves that especially confirms this. Classical music, especially by Mozart, is the current most widely accepted music for positive brain stimulation; although most if not all music stimulates the brain in one way or another. An even better approach here is to learn to play an instrument like the piano or the guitar. There is massive research that confirms that learning to play an instrument has amazing results on a person’s brain function in all areas of life. A note here to those who cannot stand to listen to classical music, avoid music that is too heavy or fast; soothing background music is best.

Spirituality is perhaps a generalized word for this area as this area deals with your internal thoughts and attitudes. This is more of a right brain stimulation area which means, knowledge, numbers and logic have nothing to do with it. Imagination is perhaps a better word; however it is too narrow to encompass this whole area. This area has to do with thinking and imagining about being on that wonderful vacation and not just thinking about it, but actually visualizing yourself seeing that waterfall, seeing how the water splashes into the pool, you standing there taking that picture. This also involves you evaluating yourself and your behavior and how it relates to society and/or your guide that keeps your grounded, such as your Bible. This is a newer area of study for much of the academic world and there is so very much information floating around about it that it would take many books to cover it all. We suggest taking the time to look more into stimulating this part of your brain as the benefits can be profound.

The last one to mention is memory exercises. There are several kinds of memory exercises and it is best to spend some time researching them online as there are many that can be beneficial. We will mention two. First take a dictionary and flip to a random page then scan to a word that you do not recognize then proceed to memorize the word and its meaning. Do this for three to five words every day. Second, search for “random word generator” online then choose one of the several free sites and generate 10 random words. Then take 60 seconds and try to memorize each of the random words. After the 60 seconds try to write down as many as you can remember. Once you can remember all 10 words, move up to 20 words, and so on.

There are actual competitions where people can remember 500 or more random words in 60 seconds of looking at them…now that’s an amazing memory. You can get there too; higher school grades, noticeably better work performance or just all around enhanced brain function are possible with these sometimes simple but amazing memory stimulating methods.

Can ADHD affect intelligence scores?

If ADHD can affect one intelligence, I know that the intelligences affected are definitely processing speed and the working memory. If I decide to take Adderall, which apparently helps those faculties…typically, can anyone answer on average the span of increase in subtest scores that test the working memory and the processing speed? Could one possibly move from superior to gifted if the VCI was in the gifted range, the POI in the superior, and the WMI and PSI in the normal range–?

I think that my ADHD possibly progressed if thats even possible…I love to read, and reading has become difficult because to me, there seems to be more books that have my interest than I have time to read….I used to be able to pick up a 400+ page book and be done with it in like 3 days 6-7th grade, while on Strattera, I’m off it now, and I tried someone elses adderall one and it seems to work better…I now need weeks to finish books that I could finish in days, 18 years old now…

Any advice?

wow… dmaud56 needs some tissues for his issues.

honestly, don’t worry so much about your changes in test scores. the prevailing thought on meds and cognitive ability is that it doesn’t change your scores at all (e.g., WMI, PSI – which are commonly lower for ADHD persons). instead, it mitigates your symptoms of ADHD (e.g., inattention, poor concentration), so your intelligence can be measured more *accurately*

BUT… meds work differently for every person. there really is no way to guesstimate how your “scores would change” if you retook a test (i.e., WAIS) on meds. odds are, if you were trying your best the first time, that’s as good as your scores will be, even if you took the test again.

and remember, there is a practice effect. if you *practice* taking those tests, you will get better.

Minerals and Vitamins for Adhd – Simple Rules to Feed our Kids

Ants in his pants and bouncing off the wall? Or is s/he being silly and giddy? And then you tell me that minerals and vitamins for ADHD are going to work and we will all live happily ever after?

Let’s face it, no diet, not even the Feingold one, is going to cure ADHD. But even if you give your ADHD child medication, you still have to feed him because his brain is not going to function without some fuel. A properly balanced diet with the right minerals and vitamins for ADHD is going to be an important part in coping with hyperactive children.

The Essentials

Look at the ADHD forums and you will probably go a little crazy reading about food allergies and allergy tests not to mention the debate about corn syrup ! This is the bottom line. Lots of ADHD kids lack magnesium, zinc and some of the essential vitamins like Vitamin C, Niacin and and the Vitamin B and D group. So, where can I find the food to give him so that we do not have to wrestle with multivitamins every morning to make sure they are getting their right dose of minerals and vitamins for ADHD?

Avoid MSG

So, you either make your own bread, sauces and cook everything yourself OR you make sure that you avoiding stocking up with all the processed packaged foods which have all those artificial preservatives, additives and all the other stuff which can really send a kid’s brain into a spin. MSG (mono sodium glutamate )is a killer in that it makes processed food taste great but is addictive and therefore causes obesity. It also acts on the brain by interfering with our ‘I have had enough’ mechanism ! Result :- obese kids. Always better to look out for MSG additive on food packets.

Anyone For Fish?

No harm in adding fish to your kids’ diet once or twice a week. They contain the famous EFAs (essential fatty acids) including Omega 3 which are found in flax oil pills if you are worried about the mercury content in fish. Go for smaller fish (anchovies, crab and rainbow trout ) – they are much less likely to be from overfished and contaminated fishing grounds than the bigger ones (avoid Atlantic bass, cod, grouper, red snapper, swordfish and tuna).Cut down on candy, pizza, French fries, ice cream, pies and desserts and anything fried. Stock up on whole grains, fruit and veg, nuts and lean meat too.

Give Your Kid A Normal Childhood

So, apart from a sensible diet which I have outlined above which will contain all the essential minerals and vitamins for ADHD, what about ADHD medication? I shudder when I read some of the posts on the ADHD forums :- skinny kids who have lost their appetite, other kids plagued by strange dreams, jittery, shaking hands ! These are just some of the side effects of psychostimulants (Vyvanse, Wellbutrin, Adderall and Strattera) used extensively for ADHD. Click on the link below to give your child a better chance in life – it will explain about a natural ADHD treatment which is safe and free from side effects.

Any dietary intervention for ADHD kids?

Avoid processed food as much as possible. If you must feed your child processed food, check the ingredient listing. basically, if there are unpronounceable ingredients and numbered additives, avoid that food and choose one with recognised ingredients.

Supplement with fish oil (EPA & DHA fatty acids). Check that the supplement has been filtered for mercury. You should notice results within a couple of weeks.

Flaxseed meal (1 heaped tablespoon daily) will help with fatty acids as well as bowel health, which can be a factor.

Many people find that their ADHD children are sensitive to dairy and wheat products. My suggestion is to completely avoid dairy and wheat for 3 weeks then give your child a dairy smoothie. Wait a few days and see if there is any difference in their behaviour, sleep patterns or bowels. If you do notice changes, then chances are your child doesn’t process this substance properly and is best avoided. Keep avoiding dairy until the next week when:

A week later, give them a bowl of pasta (no cheese). Do the same thing – observe changes. The same rules apply.

If you suspect any other foods, follow the same protocol as described above.

Finally, make an appointment to see a naturopath to have a personalised plan for your child that can be adapted as s/he gets better and more aware of triggers.

How To Level In Aion

Aion’s leveling system is a giant change from most Massive multi player Online games, but it has Aion leveling guides. Compared to other games, Aion’s quest for level 50 isn’t much longer, but rather there are not as many quests to fill in the times you need to level up to get a replacement set of quests. Having to grind a large portion of levels can be highly time consuming and hair pulling, so why don’t you make it easy on yourself with an Aion leveling guide?

everyone knows that Aion was created with the Asian gamer in mind. This area devotes themselves to the game and really enjoys a more mindless grind compared to one full of unique quests and journeys.
Sure, Aion is great fun, but it is’s difficult to log in to play everyday when you know you’ll be slaughtering the same bear over and over and over and over and over and over again.
Getting the same drops. Employing the same talent rotation. Resting after an identical quantity of mobs.
So us, being the ones who don’t like the heavy grinding at all, who prefer a method where we will do whatever we need and have gamer ADHD, but still level. We need to find how to keep ourselves occupied with an Aion leveling guide. Variation is the key to staying centered in a grind game like Aion.

You will be one of the wealthiest folks on your server! Now, of course there are Aion leveling guides open to you, but what exactly are they?

The point of Aion leveling guides is to earn you money, gear, and abyss points, all while making you level at supersonic speeds.
The Aion leveling guide that I am talking about is a guide from Killer Guides. They include step-by-step details on everything you have to do, whether or not it is where to get a search giver, where to kill a hidden mob, where to find rare mobs, or maybe how many bears to kill on your way to reach that level 46 that you wanted. the important thing with Aion leveling guides is to not hesitate. If you hesitate then you will not receive the full effect. This guide is created to take you from 1-50 in less than 4 days. Less than four days! You might be max level in a few days and then return to the abyss and start murdering all those who used to kill you. It is one of the most awesome feelings in the world to rough up on somebody who thought that you were simply a lowbie.

You can provoke all your chums by leveling up beside them, but then passing them a couple of hours later! I get tells all the time asking how I was 25 last night, but 36 this morning! Mind you, it does get vexing a little time, but it lets me know that I got my money’s worth with this Aion leveling guide. I don’t want to be the sole person with this information, be sure to get yourself a copy and then share it with your chums.

I highly recommend going with this Aion leveling guide, but where are you able to find them? Well, if you’re interested you can try the Aion Leveling Guide.

About the Author

Author Bio

I’m ADHD and working from home. How do I manage meeting my deadline? I’m really lagging behind…?

I have this deadline to finish doing paper work. I am given 200 pages of paper work, I am translating this piece for a client through an agency (2 weeks/10 working days to get it done). Which means I have to finish translating 20 pages per day to get the work done. Problem is, I am having problem sleeping at night (although I am too tired to get any work done at that point). I end going to bed hours after midnight and wake up at around noon. I have compared notes to other people who have done the same type of work, but they usually manage twice as much work as I can in the same amount of time.

I start working but then I get distracted. And I am being very unproductive. I am restless. I keep walking and end up playing online (playing online games, etc).

The man who I am responsible to at the agency is very kind and I feel bad that I am doing such a bad job… I feel terrible.

ADD is a bitch, and I struggle with this stuff ALL THE TIME. It makes me want to bang my head against my desk. I really don’t have any fantastic solutions to getting more work done, but from my experience here are some tips. First, realize that its going to take you longer than other people to get things done. It takes me twice as long to read and maybe 3 times as long to write as a “normal” person. Using medication (adderall) has been the only thing that has helped me speed this process up a little, but still not stellar. I try to accept it, and I know that while it might take me longer I usually do a better job than my peers. Second, a messed up sleep schedule is social suicide. Shortly after getting on Adderall, I started using Ambien too. At first I felt like I was relying on drugs too much, but then I realized that to meet the demands that I faced, I needed to be able to sleep and to concentrate, and I just can’t on my own. But try not to use over the counter sleep aids, they’re pretty dangerous. Third, unless you focus much better than me, occasionally leave the house to get work done. Sometimes I can focus at home, but then I realize I’m sitting in an office chair when I could be laying on the couch, and I still need to do dishes and laundry, and I wonder when my boyfriend will be home… Eventually I realize I haven’t done any work at all and I know its time for a change of scenery. Head to the library, go somewhere quiet, with hopefully not many people. Lastly, and this is the hardest, try to set a schedule for yourself and keep it. Not just a “I need to get 20 pages done today” schedule, but a “I am going to work from noon – 3, take a 30 min break, then work from 330-630” kind of schedule. Schedule in some play time, where you know you can relax.

And don’t be so hard on yourself. You’re not doing a bad job, you just need to adjust to it. 🙂

I can’t teach this kid! He’s not interested in anything!?

I am tutoring this 2nd grade ADHD kid and all he wants to do is play with Legos. I have to tutor him in math and reading, but no matter how many cool, fun games that I come up with, I still feel like I can’t grab his interest. Any ideas?? Thanks.

I have two little brothers with autism and ADD, and the only way to really grab their attention is to use whatever the are currently focusing on to grab their attention. For Instance, when my little brother was focusing in on Teen Titans, I could grab his attention by showing him a picture or music video about one of the characters and then talk about whatever I wanted to for about 5 minutes after I showed it to him before he got back to what he was doing. You could probably give him a lego each time he solved a problem or read a sentence correctly, and then once you were done with about 15 questions you could let him play for 5 minutes and then do it again.

There are no surefire way to check ADHD. However, a doctor who is trained in ADHD will be able to tell with much accuracy. On your own, you can compare his symptoms with the established ones. You can look up ADHD symptoms here =>

Important Pointers When Parenting A Adhd Child

Parenting a ADHD child can be a bit of a rollercoaster ride emotionally. ADHD children can be funny, inspirational creative, and gifted in lots of ways, as well as having challenging behaviors.

A child with ADHD needs special care and attention. Providing the best possible attention and care for your child requires a deep understanding of what ADHD is all about. The first vital step is for parents to learn how ADHD affects their child at home, in school and socially.

Significantly, there are 3 main symptoms of ADHD: Hyperactivity, Inattention and Impulsiveness.

• Hyperactivity – This is said to be the most understood yet misunderstood indication of ADHD. This is the inability of a child to sit still for any period of time. Playing with objects, fidgeting, talking too much, and being in constant motion are some examples of hyperactivity.

• Inattention – This is either the inability to give attention to a specific matter, or flitting from one thing to another. A child with ADHD finds it hard to block out distractions and concentrate on one specific item or task. Some symptoms of inattention are daydreams, distraction from work, making careless mistakes and being disorganized.

• Impulsiveness -This means “living in the moment”. A child with ADHD tends to takes hold of everything that is interesting for him or her. They may immediately grab something without worrying if it might be inappropriate or without considering any consequences that may arise from that action. In short, they act before they think. A child who cannot wait for things, interrupts other people, and answers questions before they’re even finished being asked displays impulsiveness.

These symptoms can make it exhausting and seem time consuming to raise a child with ADHD.

So, here are some steps parents can take to help them in raising kids with ADHD:

1. Join a support group. This can be really helpful as you benefit from the experiences of others and can bounce ideas off each other.

2. Be aware of your child’s ADHD – most of the time they are not being naughty and ignoring or defying you. The reason for their actions is because of the ADHD. It is important for parents to discern the difference between the being naughty and defiant, and the symptoms of ADHD.

3. Just like any family establishing a child-parent relationship is extremely important. For this relationship to work, parents need to make time for their child. The emphasis here is on quality time rather than quantity. An hour spent watching TV together is no the same as 15 minutes talking and listening to your child. Find time in your day to incorporate ways of spending quality time with your child for example around the dinner table or before bedtime.

4. Be a good role model to your child. Children usually imitate the behaviors that they witness so make sure you show them positive examples.

5. It is okay to be firm, yet kind to discipline your child. Be sure to remain calm especially when facing difficult situations. Establish ground rules and expectations about behaviors, be clear on what will happen if these rules are broken and always follow through with the punishment. Just as important is to acknowledge when your child has done something right. Ensure you give them praise and rewards for good behavior too. It is all too easy to focus on the negative and forget the good stuff.

6. Tell your child that you love them. ADHD sufferers are used to hearing how naughty they have been and they can often fail to realize that parents love them. By feeling loved and wanted children’s self-esteem and behavior can improve.

If you manage to add these approaches when parenting a ADHD child you should find your job as a parent becomes easier and your child clearer on what is acceptable behavior. Stay patient, remain positive and don’t lose hope.

My brother has ADHD is there anything in life that he can not do because of this disorder?

My brother is 4 years older than I am. However he is extremely gifted. You see I was wondering because I always thought you can do anything you want if you’re a hard worker and smart enough.

My friends tell me that most likely he’ll wind up a teacher, which I doubt, but I just wanted to know. Can ADHD bar you from doing anything?

I have no idea why he’d end up a teacher of all things, but no, there are recommendations against sugar and caffeine or messing up your sleep schedule, but nothing you can’t do.
