Avatar n tn no I dont think he is being medicated nore do we want to medicate him, he does have the right to his medical files, but my concern is that ive only been in the picture for a year and a half so her taking him to therapy for this kind of behavior when my fiancee and her were married, 3 years ago, when his father had no girlfriend and they were married , I just find it ironic that she says he is not doing it at her place, and she has also told us when we first brought it up to her last year that
Avatar n tn If all you are doing is saying the letter and having her repeat it. I'm not surprised. the old saying for teaching spelling was see it, say it, touch it or write it. gotta involve all the senses. You should be using one of the brightly colored books, that have letters and pictures, etc. Can she recognize a letter if you ask her? that's a real important step - and if she can't it means you haven't been doing what I said above. by the way, just repeating the abc's isn't important.
Avatar f tn I can also recommend that you check out the BCBA website and consider the services of a Board Certified Behavior Analyst if you needs further assistance with your son's behavior.
Avatar f tn Unfortunately, their are many young and old that are incarcerated for their behavior and they didn't or were not givin a proper diagnosis of ADHD and they acted out impulsively and was held accountable for their actions. Their negative consequences could been prevented by being on the right medication. It's a sad disorder especially for those that go undiagnosed. Good luck to you and your son. Make and appt. to see a DR. today!

Avatar f tn But when inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior are the norm for a child, it may be a sign of ADHD. ADHD can lead to problems at home and at school, with family, teachers, and peers, so it’s important to identify the symptoms and get help.
Avatar f tn It is usual protocol to wait until the earliest age of 6 before diagnosing for adhd because all kids before that age show so much variability in behavior. Many kids prior to 6 will be impulsive, hard to settle down, on the move, have no filter, talk in loud voices and move from thing to thing quickly without finishing something. I believe you could google adhd and find a listing of symptoms. It involves the nervous system and people will sometimes call these kids hyper.
Avatar n tn I also know that some cultures have a pretty strong bias against psychological problems, and attempt to cover up these problems with discipline instead of help. Anyway, Rockrose is right - its time to grab the reins. You need more information. Try this site for a lot of really good info. http://www.supreme.state.az.us/casa/prepare/adhd.
Avatar n tn 15 yr old daughter was diag with adhd 2nd grade - although was family "joke" adhd long before. 1st on adderall with explosive behavior - had to try before could take straterra, insurance. Strattera was fine for sev yrs - although only limited imp - just enough to tolerate her. Problems with social interaction and her mouth - she's constantly argumentative and I believe ODD. After menstruation began, strattera appeared worthless.
Avatar f tn My 7 year old son has been labled exceptionally gifted. He does not have any behavior problem and gets along well with his peers, he is not implusive nor disruptive. He is currently in the second grade and his teacher has complained that he has a hard time staying on task, following directions and completing assignments without several prompting. He performs well in the class room, but his teacher says it is because she is constantly redirecting him.
Avatar n tn Does my son have ADHD? i am very concerned about my sons progress at school, he is 6 years old. Since he has been a baby he has rocked against the arm of furniture. When he strated school his behaviour wasnt brilliant but since hes begun year 1 he is constantly rocking against tables, disturbing others in the process, he cant go from A to B without diverting else where, he stares into space, fidgets and walks around when sitting still and is very hyperactive.
Avatar n tn I was just talking to a guy I know and he said his 19 year old daughter was having problems in college and got herself evaluated and was found to have ADHD-PI.
Avatar n tn Our own child was diagnosed with severe social phobia, depression and later thought to also suffer from ADHD. The ADHD was an incorrect diagnosis - anxiety often mimics this disorder. If the ADHD medication does not work, this could mean that the diagnosis is wrong. Tantrums and frustration and anger are common behaviours of several of the anxiety disorders. Separation issues and depression are also common to several of the anxiety disorders.
Avatar m tn gclid=CMSrt6fyjKQCFcjD7QodKDB5Sg Some of the more serious side effects of drugs heart attacks, growth problems blood disorders, and psychosis.Travis Thompson, Ph.D, from the University of Minnesota and Klaus R. Unna, M.D., from the University of Illinois reported that “perhaps the best-known effect of chronic stimulant administration is psychosis. Psychosis has been associated with chronic use of several stimulants: e.g., amphetamines, methylphenidate, phenmetrazine, and cocaine.
Avatar n tn One of the reasons why it is important that children have the benefit of health insurance is to be able to obtain help in situations such as yours. There is no doubt your son acn be helped. Aggressive behavior per se is not a component of ADHD. Howver, one component of Combine-type ADHD is impulsivity, and your son does appear to be having problems with controlling his aggressive impulses. If his ADHD is at least of moderate severity, it invites pharmacological treatment in addition to therapy.
Avatar n tn From the time he was three years old he has had behavior problems. I now think they were related to anxiety and aspergers. I have observed at our home if I break his routine or he is annoyed by someone else (usually his step sister), he becomes very agitiated and 'has a melt down'. I suspect that it is aspergers but his step mom keeps telling me it just years years of bad behavior and being allowed to act this way.
Avatar n tn DO YOU notice she has a hard time following directions?

Avatar f tn I have been recieving phone calls from the teacher for about every other wk because of his behavior problems he is not really iniciating he want to be part of the group. he can't sit still for story time, he bites his nail and always has to be doing somthing and basically is always in his own world. He bosses the children around as if he was an adult which is not good for the kids there.
Avatar f tn Either way - even if he has ADHD- you need to get good behavior management skills. What therese is suggesting is just one of many techniques that can be used.
