Symptoms of ADD (attention deficit disorder) or ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) begin in childhood and are often categorized by lack of attention, impulsive or disruptive behavior, and hyperactivity. Many PROaupair host families have children with ADD/ADHD, some of whom take medication on a regular basis. Our professional au pairs, including early childhood educators and pediatric nurses, use their training to help families with children with ADD/ADHD to manage their conditions, including providing support for behavioral therapy, implementing organizational techniques, minimizing distractions, and modeling appropriate behavior.
