Children with this condition not only suffer from poor grades because of their inability to focus, but they also tend to form poor peer relationships as well because they can not read social cues well.
A therapist can offer interpersonal cognitive problem solving techniques that will help the child slowly build better and more meaningful relationships.
The therapist might use cognitive rehearsal training techniques in order to have the child practice what they would do the next time they are faced with the challenge.
They can also perform modeling techniques in which the child and the therapist role play how the desired interaction should look like.
Problem solving in cognitive psychology is one of the most effective ways to work with cognitive disorders.
Early intervention is important so that the child’s self esteem will not suffer any more damage.
