Avatar m tn A new study suggests that pesticides in foods may be putting kids at higher risk for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. But before you ban all produce that could be laced with pesticides from your home for fear of an ADHD diagnosis in your children, hear what experts are saying about it. Then consider ways you can limit your kids’ pesticide exposure.
Avatar n tn I know of oral motor problems with sensory integration disorder which is also a nervous system disorder that looks like ADD/ADHD in behavior but is a little different. Sensory can be by itself and it can also be a secondary problem to ADD/ADHD. Oral motor issues make speaking tough as it takes lots of coordination to make those mouth muscles work. Also, chewing can be tough especially on items like meat. It can be as extreme as a child drooling.
1100992 tn?1262357216 Oh, and he's 10, diagnosed with adhd/asperger's.
Avatar f tn It certainly is an inherited disorder for many - but not all kids. But, i have had kids in the classroom who have ADHD and their brother or sister did not. So it certainly is not guaranteed. By the way, I have seen the changes in how ADHD is treated over the years. Having spent almost 40 years in the classroom. It is being treated much better now then it was. And your little one (if they do have ADHD) will have an advantage in having parents that know what is going on.
Avatar m tn In the states, I would suggest that the child be tested in school for ADHD and a 504 be created to help in. Don't know how the system works downunder. But, I do have a lot of very good resources that can help if it is ADHD. So if it seems possible - just ask.
7087196 tn?1389306119 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. He said in school on the 18th, he wanted to shoot all the kids in his second grade class, after he pushed a girl when she was mean to him. Around the same time frame right, before school, he said he wished he was never born. He has also told me recently all the friends he had were no longer his friends.
Avatar f tn He is getting ready to go to high school next year. Upsetting part is that he was diagnosed in MI with ADHD and then when we moved to AL he was tested throug the school and result was autism. I took him to a dr and tested, result ADHD. School insists he shows more signs of autism and pretty much made it sound like he would get better help if it was autism and not adhd or if it is a combination it would benefit him.
Avatar m tn Boy, I believe you when you said, "I have Googled and read and read and Googled until I just couldn't read anymore." The length of your original post shows how much you care. Hopefully, I can help. And I'm pretty sure I have a few sources on tap that you haven't found yet. I've got a lot to say and I doubt that I will get it in all tonight. And then I will be out of town for two days. I want to talk about the ADHD diagnosis. His age and place in school.
Avatar n tn I've notice it, if that kind of treatment will continue, in his mind it is normal to take that reaction because he is right or maybe in some other way he is an add-adhd child can't control his temper and gesture. One thing you could do is let his parents know and tell them what if their son has adhd syndrome that is more alarming and tell his parents the effect of it and what could happen.
Avatar f tn While lying is not ADHD, It is common for kids with ADHD to lie. "All children lie occasionally. But because of impulsivity and low self-esteem — and their tendency to make mistakes that they think need covering up — kids with ADHD are especially prone to stretching the truth. That worries parents." And the rest of the link gives good advice on working with a child who has ADHD and is lying. And actually, its not bad advice if the child does not have ADHD.
973741 tn?1342342773 Also, trouble with executive function isn’t just a problem for kids with ADHD. Many kids with learning issues struggle with one or more of these key skills." from..... https://www.understood.org/en/learning-attention-issues/child-learning-disabilities/executive-functioning-issues/difference-between-executive-functioning-issues-and-adhd?cm_ven=ExactTarget&cm_cat=12.2.2014+Organization+Tips&cm_pla=Salesforce.com+Managed+Subscribers&cm_ite=https%3a%2f%2fwww.understood.
5150207 tn?1374211560 My 6 year old daughter was diagnosed with ADHD and OCD a couple years ago. I was raised in a time when those disorders were considered to be just an excuse for rotten kids. I never wanted to go against her doctors orders, so I have always done what they have asked of me, and I allowed the medications. She seemed to be doing great up until here recently. Last week, her teacher sent a note home stating that she was being disruptive in class and calling other children inappropriate names.
5066424 tn?1363135569 Yes, frustration is a part of ADHD. The kids just can't understand why they can't do what other people are doing (primarily in school). The most important thing that you can do is to learn all you can about ADHD! There are some very good sites with excellent practical things you can do. This site has lots of helpful ideas - http://www.additudemag.com/adhd/article/911.html And another good overall site is http://www.help4adhd.
Avatar f tn Sent you a reply via a message. In your message to me, you didn't mention that he had been hitting kids the last few weeks. Does this time frame coincide at all with his new meds. Also kind of an interesting time frame. I think that you are near the end of your school year? So he has gone all year with out hitting kids and just recently is? I would think the school would be trying to figure out why this is going on. A child does not just become a bully out of the middle of no where.
Avatar f tn Essentially, the teacher is comparing him to other kids in the class and other kids she has taught. If she is an experienced teacher, then she has basis for her reasoning. The school psyc will essentially hand out surveys to the parents and teacher. Whatever the outcome, it is always your choice on how to proceed. It may very well be that he is able (if he has ADHD) to handle the schoolwork for a year or two, before it begins to really affect him.
1138612 tn?1363532444 In, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley, she says (p.158) that between 8 to 30% of kids develop tics who have been treated with stimulants. She mentions that the tics usually stop when the medication is terminated. So doctors will usually stop the meds and switch to a different class. At any rate, yes it is unfortunately a not uncommon issue. Do let your doctor know what is going on. Best wishes.
Avatar f tn I have a hard time to make them do their home work they loose consatration really fast and there teachers tell me the same thing my boyfriend always tell me that they have adhd and i never lisen to him untill the teachers told me that she thinks they have adhd plz tell me doc with wat i have said do u think my kids have adhd i mean now im startin to think that they do and im worried that my four and one yr old r goin to.
Avatar f tn well I have 2 kids with Asperger's and ADHD and ADD but as I remember all my kids pregnancy's have been pretty active and with this last pregnancy he is very active. I'm not really sure you will know if your kids will have this because of pregnancy this is a genetic thing it usually runs in the family from somewhere and someone. It can be challenging at times but its all worth it.
Avatar m tn Whoever that is needs an earful of why it is inappropriate in a house with young, impressionable kids. Hitting-------- I recommend a book that you can pick up at the library or book store called "Hands are not for Hitting". You need to work with her to help her find other ways to express anger and frustration. You need to model the kind of behavior you want to see. Try your very best to not yell at her and spanking for a child like this is a no no.
Avatar n tn In, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley. She says on p62, that 60% of children with Tourette's have ADHD. But only 7% of kids with ADHD have Tourette's. Hope that helps. The book mentioned above is worth getting by the way.
Avatar f tn My son is 5 and going through the same things, I too have tried what seems like everything. His father is also military n is stationed in Washington state(we are in Texas). I don't feel as though my son has ADHD but I am no doctor-he has days where he gets 'green' cards, and he is very sweet and calm at home. Maybe our kids are easily overwhelmed? Hope you get suggestions soon, God bless.

Avatar n tn These are classic signs of ADHD kids. If the child is intelligent, it is not caught as early because the grades don't fall. Usually about 4th grade, the math gets complicated enough that the child starts falling behind. Common denominators in 5th grade is typically the killer. but by then the child has missed so much that catching up is really tough. Having said this, it is also possible he is just bored.
