Common Questions and Answers about Adhd evaluation forms


Avatar m tn Hi, my five year old step son has always been hyper active and some what defiant, we will taking him to have a psychiatric evaluation for possible ADHD, but recently ( in the past 4 months) we have caught him hitting him self in the head, when we ask him why he is doing this he tell us that "there is too much noise in my head" we asked him to tell us what the noise sounds like and he let out a very loud scream!
Avatar n tn Could you please tell me what type of Dr would be best to do an pshychological evaluation of my 7 year old? She is in the second grade and was diagnosed last year with some LDs and ADHD. She is on an IEP and is doing OK. She is now on concerta. She has had "meltdowns" forever. Granted they are not as often but they still appear. I am concerned with her mantal state. She sometimes hears voices.
Avatar n tn Ever since I can remember, when I urinate, my urine forms bubbles. Not so many form as to resemble soap, yet there are more bubbles than there would be in just normal water. I remember watching a commercial when I was a kid saying that if you had bubbles in your urine it could mean some sort of kidney disease. My question is, should I go see a doctor?
494594 tn?1212967928 We often get requests for "ADHD testing." I understand that there is a lot of media attention (excuse the pun) on ADD, ADHD, impulsivity, inattention. However, symptoms of inattention or restlessness are common in many learning and emotional problems such as learning disabilities, anxiety, moodiness, and motivational issues.
Avatar f tn My son (8) has been diagnosed with ADHD when he was 6. Hadn't use any medication till a week ago. We are trying Straterra and I'm hoping it will help in class with his focus/attention. He is significantly behind and am concerned with him repeating 3rd grade. I know it will crush his self-esteem. Which is why we are trying medication as advised by his doctor. I know he has something else in addition to the ADHD, some kind of learning disability.
Avatar n tn My pre-teen daughter has been dx with sensory intergration dysfunction and ADHd ( inattention ). Last year she attended a special program for Gifted children with LD,and made the honor roll but she was very unhappy because she felt teased by other children at the school. She found it very hard to make new friends.
Avatar n tn The patented brand from Japan, Suntheanine, is used in Japan to treat ADHD and is now available in the US - GNC has it under their label, so do several other companies - it will say Suntheanine on the ingredients label. It comes in capsules of 100 mg. or 200 mg. Also google the six forms of ADHD (Dr. Daniel Amen), as the third type also will require a serotonin booster such as St. John's Wort or 5htp. Big Phama hates theanine - it works.
Avatar n tn While it is certainly possible for a four-year-old to display ADHD, care must be taken to have the child undergo a systematic evaluation. The challenge of diagnosing ADHD in a pre-school-age child is that the several clusters (inattentive, hyperactive, impulsive) of symptoms associated with ADHD can be typical of normal pre-schoolers.
1203066 tn?1265879976 he sometimes came back and appologised some couple of days later, but towards the end he hardly answered any of my forms of communication. I was wondering if this ADHD may have had something to do with this. He had other things going on with his life i.e. college, a pregnant girlfriend, part time work and occasionally family and me in the background sometimes.
Avatar f tn You didn't mention that she has ever been evaluated by a pediatric mental health clincian, so I am assuming such an evaluation has not occurred. It's interesting how often parents overlook specialized evaluation in the areas of emotional and behavioral functioning, when they would never overlook specialized evaluaion for a strictly medical concern. You should arrange an evaluation.
Avatar f tn i have an 8yr old asd son he was also tilte adhd ritalin la was suggested is that good
Avatar f tn Should he be considered for ADHD evaluation? We have an appointment with his pediatrician to evaluate, along with checking his ears and his eyes. What other types of physicians should we be looking at for possible evaluation and/or treatment? Thank you.
1377599 tn?1278920970 Like the above poster commented, some of that sounds like ADD/ADHD, the rest isn't part of that. The voice would be considered a hallucination, if not your imagination. It does sound a lot like anxiety. These have all been attributed to a magnesium deficiency. You could up your diet with foods rich in magnesium. Or if it's okay with your doctor, get at least the RDI for supplemental magnesium. The best forms are: Taurate, Glycinate, and Citrate. Good luck and God bless you.
5757880 tn?1395578022 I think that it is a very good idea to try virtually anything before going the sleeping pill route. And yes, you always want to try something at the smallest dose first, give it a couple of days and then try a bit more. I did find a couple of posts of people who are using 3mg with their children. And apparently from reading those it also comes in time release and liquid forms. Of course, whatever you do - always make sure that your doctor knows about it.
Avatar f tn Genetic studies also suggest that some forms of ADHD and OCD are genetically related to TS, but there is less evidence for a genetic relationship between TS and other neurobehavioral problems that commonly co-occur with TS....The gender of the person also plays an important role in TS gene expression. At-risk males are more likely to have tics and at-risk females are more likely to have obsessive-compulsive symptoms." https://www.ninds.nih.

Avatar n tn should I get a second opinion on an autism evaluation that was done on my grandson? They said he has adhd and I agree but he also has many other symptoms that fall under the autism spectrum.
Avatar n tn My health insurance does not cover testing for ADHD and his teacher and pediatrician want him tested. Is there an organization which helps pay for these tests? I was told by my sister that under the "No when left behind law" the school department should pay. Is this true?
184933 tn?1209353840 Does anyone have a kid with ADHD and an IEP? I've been reading through various articles and law regarding IEP, not much mention of 504 Plan though. Seems like my son might qualify because of his serious ADHD, emotional trauma and health issues. We have a meeting set for August 19th, 2010.
Avatar n tn We have a 7 yr. old boy in the 1st grade. He was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 4. I don't feel like we were taken very seriously about the problems he has and have again started the process of trying to get an accurate diagnosis. He loves to read but almost refuses to write. When he does you almost can't read it. His teacher says his small motor skills are severly behind. The teacher insist that his behavior is to get attention, we don't agree.
Avatar n tn The matter of ADHD can be taken up as one aspect of the evaluation.
Avatar f tn If so, it may well be that she has an anxiety disorder alongside her ADHD. This will require further evaluation by her menatl health providers. Some of the ADHD medications can exacerbate anxiety, so it's a variable that needs to be considered in treating the ADHD. If it looks like either (a) her medication may cause the chewing, or (b) the medication is exacerbating her anxiety, it would be sensible to switch to a non-stimulant treatment (such as Strattera) for the ADHD.
327385 tn?1378360731 she was seen by an add/adhd spealist last year. the doctor tinks she has it but wanted her teacher to fill out the forms. her teacher was complaining alot about her behavior.she has trouble listening-finishing tasks-wanting to lay in floor-alot of talking. but when i asked her teacher to help with the forms she tells me she doesent have those problems?
Avatar n tn It makes perfect sense to inform yourself about ADHD, and I'd recommend you take a look at Russell Barklay's Taking Charge of ADHD. It's an excellent resource for parents whose child displays ADHD. However, an actual diagnosis should be made by way of a thorough evaluation.
Avatar f tn This means that there is delayed development of insulating substance over the nerve fibres with decrease in volume and minute abnormal signals which could represent small areas of cellular proliferation or normal spaces around blood vessels. It is advised to correlate the study with a clinical evaluation. This is best discussed with your treating neurologist. Hope this helps. Take care!
