ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is the term used to cover the various syndromes where there is either attention deficit, hyperactivity, or both. So ADHD is used to refer to people who suffer from attention deficit, whether they have hyperactivity or not. Previously the term ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) was used to describe people with just attention deficit; however, this term is now no longer used, as all cases are now referred to as ADHD.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed behavioral disorder of childhood, estimated to affect 3 to 5 percent of school-age children. The condition is a neurologically-based disability, which causes a range of problems associated with behavioral difficulties and poor attention span. Children with ADHD usually have functional problems in all areas of their lives, including home, school, and peer relationships. ADHD sufferers have also been shown to experience long-term adverse effects on academic performance, vocational success, and social-emotional development.
These conditions can be divided into symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. The hyperactive symptoms make it very difficult for people to sit still and control their behavior. In many cases, this leads to disruption in the classroom and at home. This can often prevent people from learning and socializing well.
A person with ADHD may have trouble with:
- Keeping attention on tasks, in work or play
- Organizing tasks and activities
- Playing or working quietly
- Disruptive behavior
- Interrupting others
Dore can help people overcome their ADHD symptoms by tackling the root cause of their difficulties, the brain’s ‘skill center’ or cerebellum. Our Program of personalized exercises is created specifically to stimulate and improve the efficiency of the cerebellum.
Dore liberates the ability to learn, opening up a whole new world of opportunities and transforming lives.
There have been many papers written about the research into ADHD and the cerebellum. Here is a list of recommended reading.
Meet a Mississippi boy whose struggle with ADHD has gotten easier after starting Dore, an innovative drug-free program of daily physical exercises performed at home that aim to stimulate the cerebellum, making it easier for participants to learn and develop new skills. Research suggests that an inefficient cerebellum, the brain’s skill development center, is the underlying cause in many cases of dyslexia, dyspraxia, and ADHD.
