I have read many of the postings about ADD with interest as I have a
son and grandson with ADD. They have both been on medication. I
took my son off as it caused very bad ticks. This summer I ran
across something that has, so far, been very helpful. It is called
PACE. They are simply exercises our whole family does each morning
before going off to school.
There are two very good books. One is called, "Brain Gym," by Paul
E. Dennison, Ph.D. & Gail E. Dennison and the 2nd is "Smart Moves,"
byCarla Hannaford, Ph.D. These books explain PACE and other
activities that can help. PACE stands for Positive, Active, Clear and
Energetic learning. The place I was able to find thes books was in a
Health Food Store.
One of the biggest problems with people with ADD is that their brains
work very fast and often the two sides do not work together. In a
class I took this summer, the teacher said they did an experiment
where they had English being taught in one corner of the room,
History in another and Science in another. At the end when they
tested the ADD children they got 80% right on all 3.
When you learn PACE you might want to make a game out of it and start
each den meeting with it.
If any one is interested in knowing more I would be happy to give you
an in depeth as to how to do PACE. Just write me by private e-mail.
