Hello there. I am glad that the diagnosis was made this early as there are better chances of improvement early on. It is great that you are taking occupational therapy for the child, it is the right way to go. There are several kinds of therapies for ADHD and autism , behavioural and occupational therapy are the most sought after. Expect for this, I would suggest you to keep patience and let the therapy continue. At home, try to involve the child in creative activities and slowly increase the time of sitting in one place and finishing a task. For a child of three, building blocks and play learning with an abacus will be a good activity. You can even try teaching her another language except for her mother tongue. Talk to her in English or a second language , it will focus her energies in the right direction. Usually kids with ADHD are more driven and curious and over stimulated, that is why everything seems very interesting all at once, but for a short time. Try to keep your calm even if she flutters from one task to another. Try giving a word of praise or a hug or any non material reward when she finishes a task without getting disturbed in the middle. This will reinforce her behaviour of completing the task at hand and would be good as she gets older. Also, remember that the child will be as normal and natural as any other and as wholesome as you treat her. Do not over pamper, but take good care. Do not give in to every whim and fancy. Teach her all the good things you would teach any other child. She will surely outgrow the issues and remember that people who are diagnosed with ADHD in chilshood are great multi taskers and extremely creative. If you wish for homoeopathic treatment kindly contact any homoeopath in your city that you trust or you may get in touch with me. All the very best ,may the little one have a long and healthy life.
