Common Questions and Answers about Adhd organizational strategies


Avatar n tn Your symptoms related to impulsivenss, forgetfulness, organizational problems, and struggles with self-motivation are part of the diagnostic criteria for ADHD. A diagnosis of ADHD includes an onset of symptoms prior to age 8, as well as impairment across settings (e.g. home, work, school). Many primary care providers treat symptoms of ADHD with stimulants or alternatives such as Atomoxetine (Strattera).
Avatar f tn Hello. I am a 24-year-old female, and I work at an animal hospital in Ohio. After a lot of struggle creating meaningful routings in my life, holding a steady job and with basic daily tasks and activities, I decided to get help for my symptoms. After talking with councelors and a doctor, it was concluded that I was struggling with ADHD, which I didn't consider, but it makes sense in regard to my symptoms.
Avatar f tn Whether its stimulant meds or natural meds, they are only a partial answer. Teaching your child coping strategies for ADHD is also extremely important. And as I have said numerous times over the last 5 years, no one has ever posted about a natural medication that has worked, but outside of the expense it usually never hurts to try. However, there are things to avoid. Check out these links -
Avatar f tn We had suspected when he was younger that he had some attentional/hyperactivity issues but with organizational support, he was actually doing well in school. He has less difficulty with his ADHD symptoms than with his sensory dysfunction although there appears to be a lot of crossover. We took him to a top hospital in Boston and they recommended trying a low dose of Metadate CD to see if it improved his focus and concentration in school now that he is older and juggling more work.

1546912 tn?1293809481 A fruitless search for an Adult-specific ADHD forum and support community left me frustrated and cranky. Combing through general ADHD forums is -- ironically -- the worst thing for an ADHD adult who is eager to find success strategies. When I found the Mr. Tuckman's quote, I gave up the hunt and decided to put my energy into creating this forum. Please participate, enjoy, and contribute to what will be a God-send for other adults.
242532 tn?1269550379 I’m going to continue talking about the stages one has to go through to be cured of the destructive emotional eating habit, and I will continue to use the comments to the last blog to illustrate what I have to say. First, I want to remind you that the cure for emotional eating is a psychological cure, and the medicine we use to cure the mind is insight.
973741 tn?1342342773 Do you think it helps? Lots of kids with add and adhd have social skills issues, organizational skills issues, self esteem issues. What could therapy do to help them? It's often an additional expense for parents or to the patient if they are an adult. Is it worth it?
Avatar n tn Another problem I am very forgetful which the dr said is also part of my ADHD and I can go on and on I have almost every symptom of ADHD which *****, but what am I going to do. I was medicated for it for a little while and my dr refuses to prescribe me meds for it. Now school became a lot more challenging because I'm not getting any help for my ADHD. It's so difficult and stressful.

5084598 tn?1363360941 I am currently attending a new doctor and having her re evaluated for her adhd. I just want her to be unique and an individual. The teachers are telling me she needs to be medicated and the school is still new to her. Her new doctor when evaluation of her said she had no apparent symptoms???
Avatar f tn html And, of course, medication is only part of the answer - strategies on dealing with ADHD on both a personal and academic level are as important or more so then the meds. This is a wonderful site! This link to behavior at school, but you can search for almost anything you want to improve. The link is: I have lots and lots of their specific links bookmarked because they are so good.
Avatar n tn Hi there. Well, what you describe almost sounds more like anxiety than it does adhd symptoms. My older son has sensory which is very similar to to adhd, it's neurological in nature as adhd is, and he also has anxiety. The self soothing is something he had to work on. Are you talking about when he is upset, calming himself back down? With my son, we worked with an occupational therapist for strategies for this.
Avatar n tn We have been doing this ADHD med thing for over a year and am wondering if it really is ADHD. At his point i have no effective dicipline strategies for him. Last night we went to our gym for my daughters classes he decided to run through the gym practically knocking people down, I tried reminding him not to do this and letting him know why. His body language was so attrocious (sp?) we tried going out front of the gym and eventually had to sit in the car.
Avatar f tn I have several questions regarding treatment options for adults with PDD and ADHD. My brother was diagnosed with PDD-NOS and ADHD when he was five years old. He did not receive pharmacologic interventions, but received intensive Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapy. He is now 24 years old, and has done incredibly well. He currently attends college at the Art Institute of California in San Francisco.
Avatar f tn old nephew who has dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, auditory processing disorder and cognitive processing disorder. He has so much against him and he feels that he will never learn. Book learning is not helping him. He has gone from 2nd grade reading to fifth, but doesn't understand or comprehend all the time. What he learns one day, he forgets that next. It is frustrating for him more than me. I don't know how to help him.
Avatar f tn My 11 y.o. daughter has ADHD (inattentive type) and suffers from extreme challenges controlling her emotions. She is easily frustrated, easily angered and slow to calm with limited ability to self-soothe. She has a difficult time transitioning, has explosive tantrums, cries over minor difficulties and is defiant. We are under the care of a psychiatrist and a psychologist. Currently, she is on 20 mg of Abilify and 50mg of Vyvanse.
