Traveling with a Child Who Has ADD or ADHD

Some parents hesitate to travel with a child who has ADD or ADHD, but traveling with special needs children can be a rewarding experience for the child and the parents. With a little preparation, it is possible to have virtually a stress-free trip when traveling with your children.

Indoor Attractions

People who plan to take children to educational destinations, such as zoos or children’s museums, should take the time to explain the exhibits to the child. Make sure that the child is focused on what is being said and explain what he or she sees, using short phrases. It is also helpful to ask the children short comprehension questions, just to be sure that they are getting the most from the learning experience.

Outdoor Attractions

Try to take the go to places where he or she can touch the animals or physically interact with exhibits that are especially designed for children. Areas that are targeted towards children will have displays that allow children to become involved in the learning process without fear of breaking an item. Don’t forget to tell the children the rules before traveling. Parents’ rules should be brief and direct, and the rules should be discussed in the few minutes that the parents are certain that they have the child’s attention.

Outside activities can be particularly beneficial when traveling with a child who has ADD or ADHD, because they give the child places to run, climb, or safely explore nature. For younger children, choose attractions with outdoor recreational areas when making travel plans. It is a good idea to brief the child on how to play with other children in these areas. Remind the child not to hit, kick, or touch others at any time, but especially when the child is feeling frustrated. Always monitor the child carefully in public recreational areas, never leaving the child unattended.

Road Trips

Parents and children with ADD or ADHD may find that road trips are particularly hard to handle. Give the child his or her favorite games, a DVD player, or music to help the child pass the time. Parents can also think of fun road games to play along the way to help keep the child occupied. Young children may enjoy having a few toys or dolls in the car. Be sure to use a variety of items to occupy the child during long drives or plane trips. Consider giving the child one item at a time to avoid overwhelming her.

Children in Accommodations

Parents should be sure to instruct the child of the rules for staying in a hotel or other accommodations. Try to childproof the room as soon as you arrive. Consider asking the front desk to take small electronic objects, including the telephone if that may pose an issue for a curious child. Children with ADD and ADHD thrive in a structured environment, so a change in the structure may cause the child to misbehave. Parents can emulate their home schedule as must as possible, but tell the child about any changes to the usual schedule in advance.

Plan Ahead

Think about the travel plans from the smallest detail to the biggest change and give some thought to how this may affect the child. Try to foresee issues.
• Will there be restrooms nearby?
• Will the child be able to have positive interactions with other children who may be at the attraction or destination?
• Will the parent have private time?

Some resorts offer babysitting for a fee, and some attractions have children’s clubs, which work well with all children, including those with special needs. Contact the attractions several weeks before the trip for inquiries. Parents should not be surprised if things that they thought were going to be an issue become unimportant during the trip. The child’s behavior and adaptability during the trip may be a welcomed surprise.

Exploring Portugal by Car

Playa  Carvoeiro , Algarve - Portugal
Playa Carvoeiro , Algarve - Portugal

Driving around Portugal is undeniably one of the best ways in which to appreciate the country. But visiting motorists should come prepared for the occasional terrifying moment behind the wheel as the driving of local Portuguese can sometimes be downright dangerous.

High accident rates from speeding and reckless driving have prompted the authorities to come down hard on those who break the rules. This means that it is essential for those who are planning to see the country by car to brush up on the local regulations before setting off.

Lisbon is the usual starting point for most motoring tours of Portugal, but the driving seat is not the best place from which to experience everything the capital has to offer. This is one place where you should put your keys in your pocket and a stroll around the magnificent architecture, enjoy a seafood lunch in a pavement-side restaurant, and sample the drinks and live music in the establishments of the Bairro Alto or a night in one of the capital’s many marvellous hotels.

Once you’ve had your fill of Portugal’s star attraction, consider concentrating on the Algarve, in the south of the country. This is the place for those looking for beaches, or who only have a short time to explore this magnificent country. Less than an hour from the bustle of the capital by car is the town of Sintra, which is surrounded by tree-covered hills, and not far from here is the ancient village of Evora. Visit Portugal in August and you might catch the Sudoeste festival which takes place between Lisbon and the Algarve in early August.

On the south coast are the cities of Lagos and Sagres, which face out onto the Atlantic Ocean. There are some stunning coastal views to take in here as well as a great many secluded, and not so secluded, beaches. It is worth taking a break from driving as often as possible to sample the local, ever so fresh seafood.

If beaches and golf courses aren’t really your thing, then away from the resorts of the coast is the peaceful town of Monchique, where the air is fresh and the hills are wooded. A drive under the canopy of the Foia Forest really is a joy.

The Douro Valley is another area not to be missed while exploring the country by car. Located in the north of the country, the valley has been designated a national park and has some stunning, barely inhabited landscape to travel through. It also has some extremely good vineyards, and it might be worth ditching the car for a day to go sampling the local wine and port.

Because Portugal is a relatively small country, travelling around by car is not the daunting task it appears to be in some of its European neighbours. It also only has a population of 11 million, meaning that it does not take long to escape the crowds of the cities and get out into the relatively deserted countryside.

However, there are still places where visitors congregate in order to let their hair down and have a good time, and there are plenty of historical and cultural sights to explore. The weather can be fabulous and the beaches can be a distraction. Just remember to be aware of other less attentive motorists on the roads.
