427258 tn?1266445242 My (very soon to be) 4 y/o old is going through evaluations to diagnose a possible learning disability since he's exhibited some concerns in pre-school. The evaluator has said she's sure he has ADHD, but also shows some traits of a child with asperger's syndrome (sp). Since at this time, ADHD is the only 'definitive' diagnosis, I was wondering if some one could tell me some webistes, or books they have read to help them understand it all and how to help my son.

Avatar n tn From a preschool teacher of two year olds- Anxiety separation- for the most part, moms are encouraged NOT to sneak out when baby is not looking- have fun/ be positive/play with them for a minute maybe with a puzzle for the first few days, then put child's hand in the teacher's hand with a smile, showing baby this is someone that mom likes and trusts - promise to be back "after nap" or whenever and BE there- of course you will be- the biggest challenge for me as the teacher is

535822 tn?1443976780 Immaturity Mistaken for ADHD By Jon Barron on 09/11/2010 Could your child’s birthday be to blame for his ADHD diagnosis? Maybe, especially if he’s one of the youngest students in the class. In soon-to-be published research in the Journal of Health Economics, health economist Todd Elder, PhD, of Michigan State University, East Lansing, says as many as 1 million children in the U.S. may have been misdiagnosed with ADHD, simply because of their age and maturity level.

Avatar f tn t know what your city and state have in place for early intervention programs. Many preschools in my area have grants that pay for various services for children that qualify. A therapist will come in and observe a child for a few days. The therapist is trained to look for various things that may need intervention to help the child be successful in school. It is important to look into what the behavior issue stems from.
Avatar f tn We thought toddlers had it easy. No bills to pay, no bosses to please--just ice cream and a little mischief on the brain. But America's tiniest citizens, some still in diapers, are now the newest members of the Ritalin and Prozac nation.

Features of ADHD behaviour will include: • Inattention to instructions. • Inability to learn or retain. • Inability to stay with a specific task or to complete it. • Inability to hold attention to what is being said to them. • Hyperactivity. Constantly fidgeting and moving around the place.
Avatar m tn Children who are or have been on ADHD drugs have an increased risk of committing suicide.Even the American Psychiatric Association admits that suicide is the major adverse reaction of withdrawal from these drugs. Clarke reports that “symptoms usually peak within two to four days after withdrawal of the drugs although depression and irritability may persist for months. Suicide risk can persist for years.
Avatar n tn To answer your question, the language we talk to her at home is not English, and the first time she begin to communicate in English was in the preschool two months ago. Thanks again.
Avatar m tn He has an older brother who is 4 and I never have seen this kind of behavior in him. The 2 yr old will be playing fine one moment and then the next he is very upset and nothing has been done to set him off. He will hit mom, dad or anyone around. He will throw things and nothing seems to console him. I would think that it might just be a home situation but he is behaving the same at daycare.
Avatar f tn , six or seven years of age), because until that time most of the behaviours exhibited by children with ADHD are typical of all children in the preschool years. (They may be more severe in preschoolers who have ADHD, but since some kids who are highly active in their preschool years definitely don't have ADHD, it's better to wait.) A lot of what you are describing is typical toddler behaviour - defiance, ignoring "no", climbing all over things, etc.
Avatar f tn Parenting with consistent discipline and support can help prevent over-diagnosis of ADHD in children. Sometimes, people think their child is ADHD when the child is still very young, under 5, and shows some symptoms. The problem with that is young children are still developing at very different rates and maturity levels vary greatly.

Avatar f tn Starting work in an easy-focus environment helps me get going, then I can stay going.
Avatar n tn When I was growing up back in the 70s, preschool was for 4 year olds. Maybe 3 if the kid was unusually precoscious or just needed to be social (my husband did preschool at 3). Studies have shown that other countries where kids go to school later and don't even do preschool (maybe it was Norway?) that their students test higher than U.S. students. I think they spend less time in school too. I think it was an article at one point in either the Wall Street Journal personal section.
Avatar n tn does giving cough medicines to preschoolers (specifically 2 and 3 yr old) destroy the immune system and causes damage to the brain?
Avatar m tn Well, the thing you will learn quite quickly working with kids is that they are all different. Different kids are more affectionate than others. Kindergarteners and preschoolers hold hands some and may hug. By first grade, it lessons and by 8, doesn't happen much at all at school. At home is a different story and that is very child dependent as well as the way their household is. I have two boys and one is more affectionate overall than the other in terms of physical contact.
173939 tn?1333217850 where i work, we offered many extarcurricular activities, so i have a pretty good idea of what preschoolers like. in addition, parents would often tell me of their experiences in enrolling their kids in programs outside of school. it basically boiled down to this- the kids who said they didn't want to do something were defiant and would not participate. those who were excited about the idea, generally did well.

Avatar m tn It may seem odd that it could take years for a child to be diagnosed with cerebral palsy, but according to the CDC each year at least 1,500 children in the U.S. are diagnosed for the first time when they reach preschool age. A cerebral palsy diagnosis can be delayed for a number of reasons including milder symptoms or missed signs of developmental delay. Cerebral palsy affects the part of the brain that deals with muscles so, typically, symptoms are related to movement, including speech.
