Adhd in toddlers

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd in toddlers


Avatar f tn is there any know link b/t food allergies and adhd in toddlers (2-3 year olds)? specifically linked with diary allergies?
Avatar f tn But ADHD can be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to diagnose with any confidence in kids younger than 5. Symptoms like restlessness and inattentiveness may simply be toddler rambunctiousness, "the terrible twos and trying threes," says psychologist Susan B. Campbell of the University of Pittsburgh. Or a child might be acting out in response to serious stressors like divorce, neglect or poor child care.
Avatar n tn My so has been diagnosis with ADHD has been on Med for two plus years, but this think pooping in his pants just came about, about six months ago. The strange think is that he will walk around like he doesn't smell anything.
Avatar f tn I would seek a second opinion on his ADHD diagnosis. A 3 year old really shouldn't be diagnosed as such. Nearly all toddlers exhibit all (or nearly all) of the symptoms of ADHD - that is their nature. I can't say I agree with medicating a 3 year old for ADHD either, but that is my personal thought and I am not a medical professional. Some of the symptoms you referred to don't occur with ADHD - which is why I think seeking a second opinion would be helpful to you.
Avatar n tn t forget that many of these behaviors are common in children with ADHD and developmental disorders, including autism and Aspergers. Sometimes children can have both.
1035252 tn?1427227833 Yep the title says it all. my daughter is driving me insane. she refuses to keep clothes on and I KNOW that we live in FL so our winters are mild right now (although we had several weeks of consistently below-freezing weather last winter) but the only way we can keep her clothed and warm at night is to either put her in the ONE long-sleeved onesie we have that fits her, or put a long-sleeved shirt on and put a normal onesie OVER that to keep her from removing it.
Avatar f tn I am just looking for some opinions. I have been doing lots of research in hopes of helping him in the interim year that we are waiting for an appt. and we do have another appt with the ped next week. I have also gotten him into a clinic that is funded by the Autism Alliance for an evaluation by them...although it will not be an official diagnosis it will help sort some things out, I hope. Thanks so much for reading and giving any input.
Avatar f tn I am concerned about a student in our school who has been playing with his own feces in the bathroom and smearing it on the walls- he is 7 years old and diagnosed with ADHD (on medication once daily) as well as difficulty with anger management. I am looking for some direction in areas to research, things to recommend to the parents, and verification whether this is a concern of a child this age. And feedback is much appreciated. Thanks much.
Avatar n tn read to myself, got ahead of the others in our readers while reading out loud, and then I had no idea where in the story we were when it was my turn to read. A child of three is used to, and meant to, run around exploring...not sitting at a stuffy old desk. I hate that children nowadays are considered "hyper" by the age of 5 if they aren't zombie-like.
Avatar f tn Have you consulted a therapist for him? Is he functioning mainstream in other ways?
5856747 tn?1403348682 There are no other tests to confirm the diagnosis and this again may cause difficulty in accepting ADHD as a disorder. 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 f tn My ex son-in-law stated that giving my 2 year old granddaughter a creamsicle in the evening was not a good idea, because he is positive that it makes her hyper and that the sugar in the creamsicle causes depression in some 2 year olds. Yet, the 2 year old is given juice throughout the day, which he gives her. He says he knows all of this, because he has taken Psychology 01, 02, and 03. Any comments, anyone???
Avatar f tn He regresses to things that toddlers do like biting, tearing things up and destroying things even when he knows it is wrong. I know they were looking at him for possible ADHD/Bipolar disorder. Does it sound like that might be the problem. My boyfriend has 5 kids and 4 of them are bipolar/adhd with another anger disorder and my son acts just like them when they are off their meds.
Avatar n tn Because pre-school children are, by nature, active and impulsive, and have limited capacity for sustained attention, it is difficult to diagnose ADHD in those years. However, in extreme situations, in the absence of alternative reasonable explanations for very high levels of psychomotor restlessness and impulsivity, a diagnosis of ADHD can be reached with some confidence (but always with the caveat that development needs to run its course and the picture can change in light of that).
Avatar n tn Well, my son did all those things at two. He was a late talker, would go off and play by himself at Gymboree (when the other kids were following the class leader and listening to the story), and he wouldn't come when you called him or do what you ask much of the time. I had him evaluated at 3 and was told he was likely very bright and bored and needed to be challenged more. At 4, his Montessori school teacher suggested ADHD.
Avatar n tn hes hyper and not in the adhd way either but hes acting up and is a little mean to his siblings but hes seeking counseling...i am worried she will turn into one of those toddlers that scream at everything and is scared of everything cuz shes already crying at any lil thing...
Avatar f tn Jag har med stor chans ADHD. Ingen diagnos satt, men psykologen sa det. Var på NPF.mottagningen och fick resultaten på testerna. Gick bra och gick därifrån glad. Manga har tjurat idag och sårade mig lite, men annars okej. Spydde på kvällen.

Avatar n tn Omegle why? Why do I do this? Suicidal toddlers?
Avatar n tn Im curious because I have a son who is 2yrs old. He is also neutropenic, he has been in the hospital 3 times in the last 3 months. The last time that he was in the hospital which was 2 weeks ago, he had a bone marrow biopsy done. Turns out that he does not have cancer(thank God) but they do not know why he is neutropenic. We found out he was neutropenic in March of this yr 2009. Since he was born he has always been prone to infections. But they never told me he was neutropenic untill now.
