Learning to focus?
My 8 (9 this month) year old daughter and I have done a sensory questionnaire that was scored by an OT with a background in sensory stuff.
We are still waiting for the report but from what he's said, if I understand correctly, I am under stimulated and she is over stimulated... opposite ends of the scale but we have similar issues.
The 2 that affect us the most seems to be our trouble focusing and our frustrations. I was never taught the proper ways to deal with frustration so I just get angry, this means I am unable to teach her proper ways so she gets angry too.
Things were worse with her while she was on Concerta for ADHD. It helped her focus on her school work but caused many long, intense tantrums. I have taken her off the Concerta and she has returned to the girl I knew before the pills, but of course the focus is gone too.
What I want to know is how we can learn to focus?
We are going to be trying out yoga but at this point she doesn't seem interested in joining.
What else can we do?
