In this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast, I outline different behavior triggers that are common with ADHD and/or “high-functioning” autism. Within this list are developmentally lagging skills, but also differences in how a child’s brain functions when they have ADHD. Recognizing these and other triggers in your child will help you improve behavior and reduce the instances of outbursts and meltdowns. This knowledge will also help you understand your child better and remain a calm parent.
