Hyperactive child and sports

I want to clarify right away that we will not just talk about “nimble” children, but about those for whom hyperactivity is indeed a medical problem, a diagnosis established by a doctor.

Once again I hear: “We were told that the child has hyperactivity. I read on the Internet – horror! Help, what should we do!?” Throughout my work in kindergarten, then in private practice, I have repeatedly encountered incorrect use of the concept of “hyperactivity”. Each “superficial” specialist likes to use unfamiliar, foreign words, thereby raising his authority and self-esteem. But the word “not a sparrow” will fly out and may turn into a completely different side to you. So it was at the pedagogical council, when the deputy head used this term for no reason. In response, I received an… Read More
