People First Language and ADD
Have you ever heard a child described as “an ADD child?” This language is everywhere! When you are speaking of a person, coupled with a disability or condition, it is better to put the person first. The condition or disability is mentioned second. This is what “people first” language is about.
Perseveration and Attention Deficit Disorder
Perseveration is when a person continues the same action or thought after the original stimuli is gone. It can be a persistent thought or idea that a person just can't get rid of, and it is non-productive. This can be a problem for folks with ADD. How can you break the perseveration cycle?
