Avatar f tn It varies to a degree and in order to be prescribed stimulant medication you just complain of those symptoms and possibly take a questionnaire to prove such claim. ADD/ADHD is just a name. It used to be called minimal brain dysfunction. It's a name for doctors, it's a name for lawyers, it's a name for the pharmaceutical business people.
377493 tn?1356505749 We began to discuss special needs children in general. After the conversation I began to really think about it. Over the last few years I have met so many different women on this site and have seen so many new babies come into this world. I also have met many many women who already had children that were a bit older. Whether it was a baby born with downs syndrome, or a child with autism. Whether that child had ADD, or hyperactivity or a learning disability.
7087196 tn?1389309719 He was given an assessment where his teacher filled out a questionnaire and his parents filled out a questionnaire as well. The diagnosis was borderline ADHD. I was diagnosed with ADHD at 15, was given Ritalin, and my behaviors became so much worse, wrong diagnosis. In 2005 was diagnosed with Bi-Polar. They have tried Celexa, Risperdal, Quafanicine (unsure of spelling) and they work for a very short time and his behavior gets worse then it was before.
602796 tn?1219877065 I agree that there is an overwhelming number of children being diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. Most don't have it. They are typical children. Every child tested for this has some symptoms. The key is in the degree and severity of it. Some children do have ADD/ADHD and need help. As a teacher, I have seen children medicated that did not need it and children NOT medicated that did need it. Teachers are certainly not doctors, but neither are mothers.
Avatar f tn 93 GPA in college. I just gradated with honors with a 3.5 GPA and have been treated for ADD a little over a year. It is three fold just like my addiction.... I can not only get well through medication. I have to modify my behaviors and undergo cognitive therapy as well. It can be done.
799827 tn?1237599735 I also called today for an Advocate which is a free service to assist parents in getting services for children with disabilities. I have been a busy bee today. I was reading about your fight for services and I admire how you have been able to really advocate for your son's needs. I am not usually as vocal, so I have been thinking that maybe the Lord meant for this to give my DD's mom a voice. I hate confrontation so this must be my test to fight for my DD.
521840 tn?1348844371 New Screening Measure for Doctors Detects Signs of Autism at 12 Month Well Baby Visit--Good News! There is some wonderful news for all of us parents of young children! The Journal of Pediatrics has published a new tool for screening one-year-olds for early signs of developmental delays--including symptoms and behaviors consistent with Autism. Autism is a developmental delay that impacts children's language, social functioning, play, learning, and behaviors.
627816 tn?1349241716 In addition, a file number is assigned to each child for data recording and analysis, and to ensure confidentiality. There is no charge for this service. It usually takes a week to get your report back.
Avatar m tn I will be grateful on any advice on to help my son to control himself as I have tried breathing techniques, calm down areas, rewards for good behaviour and treats or consoles being taken away for periods of time for bad behaviour... I have another 2 children younger which did not have the influence of their biological father and they thrive in school listen well to adults are academically ahead...and are generally happy children...
484180 tn?1209160023 I feel that the questionaires the teachers filled out were more for grade school aged children rather than high school aged children. My daughter tends to appear shy around adults she doesn't know well, I feel these teachers are not able to accurately answer these questions since they have not been able to spend an adequate amount of time with her.
Avatar f tn Will do! You are now officially "counted"!
Avatar f tn thanku for ur advice and i can also add that my daughter also seems to have an obbsession with dolls and animals because everything she talks about or wants 95% of the time either has to be about animals or dolls,she will whine and cry if u just say unitentionaly that a certain doll or animal is ugly its rediculious.everytime we go to walmart she whines to go to the toy isles and she goes right for dolls everytime she has alot of dolls right now from small to big to porcelien.
Avatar f tn At this time of year especially, those who can afford it are often moved to make contributions to worthy charities. The Wheelchair Kamikaze, a blogger for whom I have a great deal of admiration, talks in his most recent blog (WheelchairKamikaze.com) about several organizations who are doing great work towards solving the problem of MS. Here he means research towards a cure; he's emphatically not focusing on Big Pharma or other profit-making outfits.
Avatar n tn The Autism Department in our city uses this questionnaire to get an idea of the sensory difficulties of the children. So it is a reputable questionnaire.
469720 tn?1388149949 And the most frightening part of the whole equation is the rapidly increasing inclusion of children.
Avatar m tn Try given him Vitamins like omega 3-6-9 and B6 ,B12 and a childs multivitamin they can all help better than those drugs they use for for people that they say have add or adhd and bipolar.
Avatar f tn In Sweden boys start school one year later than girls. Beware of going the ADD route at this stage. ADD meds should be reserved for the child who is properly diagnosed, and when all other methods of treatment have failed. You child is too young for such a diagnosis in any case.
443100 tn?1210625462 I don'tknow much about it, sorry. I think it's for school age children. Australian Scale for Asperger's Syndrome this is Tony Attwood's nice questionaire from his book: ASPERGER'S SYNDROME A GUIDE FOR PARENTS AND PROFESSIONALS. He is a REAL expert! You can find it at OASIS website (a great resource fot AS): www(dot) udel(dot) edu(slash)bkirby(slash)asperger(slash)aspergerscaleAttwood(dot) html and Childhood Asperger Syndrome Test (CAST) Sorry, dunno much about this either.
Avatar n tn I am not sure if they use different criteria for younger children. There is something called the CHAT questionnaire that parents are sometimes asked to complete in the UK as it has alot of questions that are red flags regarding autism spectrum disorders. I'm sorry if this post makes you more concerned. But if you feel something isn't right or is maybe delayed then you need to get the ball rolling asap.
377493 tn?1356505749 after much conversation and putting all options on the table, we have got a new game plan for that second child. I have accepted that there is a very slim chance of this happening naturally, and with adoption it's 50/50 at best. Donor eggs with DH's sperm is seriously expensive. So, we have started the ball rolling with embryo donation. I have been speaking with the folks at California Conceptions and have my very first formal consult on Monday afternoon.
Avatar f tn If he is developmently delayed it would be more mild but enough to qualify him for a funded school program. He was evaluated by a psychologist who did not feel ADD/ADHD. My son also has a habbit of nose picking or crotch grabbing both which I am learning might just be a nervous soothing habbit. I am trying to break these asap. My son also is very serious and I think might have low self esteem due to his learning problem.
Avatar f tn This leads to a great deal of frustration for students. Children with this condition have difficulty in sitting still and concentrating on what is going on and they are very easily distracted. Other symptoms of dyspraxia are falling or being clumsy. If her handwriting is "all over the place", that could also be due to this condition.
408795 tn?1324939275 That is an excellent question. I wanted to add more life insurance to my existing policy but had 2 things that made me think it wasn't going to happen 1) a long questionnaire that must be signed by your medical team explaining your current illness and 2) I am 35 years older than when I bought the original life insurance I just let it drop because it would cost so much and take a great deal of my time to get approved.
Avatar n tn I also wanted to add that it is very common for children to have traits of both and/or other disorders. I think sometimes their tends to be a blur between the two when looking at issues of focus/attention and impulsiveness. But for a diagnosis a number of professionals should be involved in assessing your daughter. She will need to be seen by a Speech and Language Therapist to see what her language and social skills are like.
Avatar n tn 1) For kids with milder autism (or possibly just autistic symtpoms), is it sometimes preferrable to have in home treatment for children and send them to a regular pre-school? Is it common to send mild autistic kids to a mainstream pre-school? 2) If we really wanted to know if our son was autistic, is it better to have the diagnosis done by the Early Intervention Specialist or by a Pediatrician that Specializes in Childhood Development?
780647 tn?1304024542 And I would also recommend he tries some physical sport such as trampoline classes - you can find classes for special needs children. We bought a small exercise trampette for in the house (to save the furniture), and you could have a bigger one outside. You could also look into some of the listening therapies as they have clinical evidence of improvements in all areas.
Avatar n tn But obviously I was annoyed at my husband for not seeing that he would take what he said literally and he didn't have the foresight to see that if he was being naughty and did it one more time that he might get into trouble. From that example you can see how these children can get into trouble at school. For example if a teacher asks sarcastically 'so you think you're smart do you?' they will probably reply 'yes'.
Avatar n tn Children's development has to be viewed along a spectrum, and there is a wide spectrum of normal. It's not unusual for children to display uneven development - i.e., they aren't at precisely the same point in all aspects of development (gross motor, fine motor, cognitive, social, emotional) at the same time. Can I assure you that your daughter will develop normally? No - I nor anyone can predict what the future will hold.
Avatar f tn Speak with your local Education Department at the Council and find out what kind of schools are in your area that cater for children with a diagnosis of Autistic Spectrum Disorder (or ADHD for that matter as they tend to be the same schools). You may find there are some children in mainstream, some Enhanced Resource school (this is a mixture of mainstream and special needs - if you have that in Ireland), and some Special Schools (where all the children have special needs).
