Gifted ADHD Children
Difficulty with scanning the environment
Hello, I am new, thanks for your posts and input. I have an 11 year old boy with ADHD, he is on 27 mg of Concerta and it helps him focus on school work but still he has mild-moderate trouble with impulse control.
My son has trouble visually scanning a room or area to find an item. He was looking for a sponge at the sink and it was right in front of him. It helps to reduce the clutter, but it is just really a pronounced problem he has had since he was small. He also never thinks to look under things when searching for items.
He doesn’t have any trouble with other visual scanning, he is fine with reading and is better than average with eye-hand coordination.
I have tried to find information on visual scanning and ADHD but it’s all about reading. Anyone else have this problem and have you found strategies to help? Thank you!
