STUDY FINDS LONG-TERM USE OF STIMULANT MEDICATIONS SUPPRESSES HEIGHT AND DOESN’T REDUCE ADHD SYMPTOMS
Study finds long-term use of stimulant medications suppresses height and doesn’t reduce ADHD symptoms
A long-term study published in The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry found that extended use of stimulant medication was linked to suppressed adult height but did not reduce symptoms of ADHD.
Tanya Mitchell, Chief Research Officer for LearningRx (www.LearningRx.com), the world’s largest personal brain training company, says that parents who are concerned about their child’s ADHD may want to consider one-on-one brain training to target and train attention and other clusters of weak cognitive skills associated with ADHD.
“About 30% of our clients were diagnosed with ADHD before coming to us,” says Mitchell. “Most of those students, in addition to weak broad attention skills, had weak long-term memory, processing speed and working memory.”
Mitchell explains that over a six-year period, 5,416 children and adults came to LearningRx with the diagnosis of ADHD. “We measured the cognitive performance of these clients before and after brain training, and the largest gains were seen in IQ, auditory processing, long-term memory and broad attention. After LearningRx brain training, IQ scores improved by an average of 15 standard points, and broad attention skills improved an average of 24 percentile points.”
The full results can be found on page 25 of LearningRx’s 48-page 2016 edition of “Client Outcomes and Research Results.” http://www.learningrx.com/what-is-brain-training-/results/

medicalnewstoday.com Data from three different studies suggest that lower brain volume and a propensity for alcohol use may have the same underlying cause: genetic factors.

These five interventions including smoking cessation, regular exercise, a healthy diet, limited alcohol consumption and cognitive stimulation.
But in August, a new longitudinal study from University College London found that there’s another lifestyle factor that appears to lower the risk of dementia later in life:

Book lovers don’t need an excuse to read, but for people with dyslexia, reading can feel more frustrating than relaxing. But reading isn’t just about academic success! It also improves memory and concentration, reduces stress and may even slow cognitive decline.

This is when school gets hard again...because reviewing last year's subjects is over.
You guys, this is so true. Behavior is ALWAYS a result of something deeper.
On the surface, we may see...
*a child that is stubborn and argues or cries about doing homework
*a child that is lazy and doesn't try his best
*a child that hates reading and puts it off as long as he can
*a child that would do much better if he would just focus
*a child that is angry and tired of working so hard
*a child that gives up and finally quits trying
It's easy to look at these behaviors, at what's on the surface. It's easy to label our children and it's easy to think those labels are the real issues.
However, I challenge you to look below the surface. Look deeper. What is hidden in the 85% you can't see?

What ARE cognitive skills, exactly?
Cognitive skills are the core skills your brain uses to think, read, learn, remember, reason, and pay attention. Working together, they take incoming information and move it into the bank of knowledge you use every day at school, at work, and in life. How many cognitive skills can you name?

MATH STORYTELLING DAY
On September 25th, Math Storytelling Day encourages everyone to tell stories through math. This is a day to appreciate all the ways math enhances our daily lives.
The day is a great opportunity to get children excited about math through stories and games. Math stories can include logic, patterns, puzzles, and numbers. Tell math jokes and sing songs about math.
HOW TO OBSERVE #MathStorytellingDay
Explore math stories, make up new ones, listen to others tell even more math stories. Use #MathStorytellingDay to post on social media.
Educators, visit the National Day Calendar classroom for ways to incorporate this day into your school calendar.
NATIONAL MATH STORYTELLING DAY HISTORY
The Natural Math Community of Naturalmath.com created Math Storytelling Day in 2009. Dr. Maria Droujkova was inspired after reading a blog post by Seth Godin entitled “What should I do on your birthday?” Seth encouraging readers to think bigger than themselves when making birthday suggestions to friends. Dr. Droujkova took the idea to heart and declared Math Story Day would be shared with friends and family on her birthday, September 25. Not only did Dr. Droujkova share math stories, but the first person to respond, Sue, shared a birthday with Dr. Droujkova, too.

Sometimes it’s hard for parents (and even teachers!) to determine if certain struggles or behaviors are just a normal part of the learning process, or if they are an indicator of a deeper issue. Certain problems can serve as red flags that a cognitive skill weakness may be causing serious learning struggles and holding a child back.
