I like how this article identifies the problem of anxiety. With ADHD, Anxiety, ODD, and many other diagnosis, the inability to self regulate your emotions means that your reaction can only be fight or flight. For me, anxiety attacks still send my heart racing, my blood pumping, when in a challenging situation even when I know that I’m fine! When I know that I’ve got this presentation, or this important meeting. My body still gets disregulated. Sensory diets can help with this, as well as using the ALERT system or, working on identifying how a child’s “engine” is running. Please see my post in the comments below.
