Common Questions and Answers about Adhd questionnaire child

adhd

Avatar f tn I think it could very easily not catch a child with ADD. The gold standard for diagnosis is to do a questionnaire with the teachers and parents. ADD and ADHD are very different. Good link here - https://helpguide.org/articles/add-adhd/attention-deficit-disorder-adhd-in-children.htm My personal opinion is that this test is just a way for inexperienced professionals to deal with a problem they have little knowledge of. Are you in the United States (which state) or England?

Avatar f tn My son was diagnosed with ADHD 5 years ago. Been on medication for 3 years increased meds nov 12, had meeting with senco and have been informed the teachers think because his medication is now correct for ADHD he is showing traits of asd. The senco wants an accambac ( not sure how its spelt) questionaire to be sent to school and myself from his ADHD doctor. Is this questionaire for a new diagnosis or to confirm he has both asd and ADHD.
Avatar m tn The conners questionnaire filled out by myself and the teacher indicates ADHD in addition to learning disabilities. I would like to know if ADHD can lower IQ tet scores due to the fact that he could not concentrate on the actual test. I am aware my son has learning and behavioral disorder but I am not being able to accept the "intellectual deficiency" indicative of mental retardation.
Avatar f tn He has been tested and does not score ADHD his therapist is a PHD in child Phycology His dad is home but not very present other than to yell and scare this does not go on just in school His teacher just called me he hit a boy so hard on the hand he left welts now off to school we go in morning she is at her wits end. I just explained to him this morning before school the consequences of hitting can be very serious and criminal and now this.
Avatar f tn They can assess a person/child against a list of symptoms that are collectively named ADD/ADHD - for lack of much better understanding. When they test for the flu, they can list the symptoms and check them off (temp, ache, cough, etc), but they can also TEST for a virus and yes/no its there. But in medicine those symptoms alone can mean many things. Same for attention and hyperactivity. 2.
Avatar f tn s smart but he has been classified as ADHD due to focus issues. Lately I have seen some unusual behaviors, which my ex-husband and I have been trying to address. Yesterday we were told by his teacher that he was seen picking his nose and eating it. After sitting down with him, we found out that he was modeling another student in the class and didn't see what he was doing as inappropriate. Also when I take him to a movie, he sometimes covers his ears because of some of the loud sounds.
Avatar n tn I like your neurologist's approach. And yes, a lot of the symptoms certainly sound like ADHD. It will be worth your time to start reading up on ADHD to understand what may be going on with him. This medhelp link is a good starting point. http://www.medhelp.org/medical-information/show/2157/Attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-ADHD Also your post sounds like your son is now in second grade. He would have been 5 going on 6 in first and 4 going on 5 in K.

Avatar m tn There are some really excellent books on add/adhd for parents that Sandman 2 recommends. I think you would find them very helpful. Scroll down through the posts and you should see them or I will send him a note to leave them here for you.
Avatar f tn But, I have seen numerous times where when the child was diagnosed and the parent started researching adhd - they said, "wait, so that explains why I always acted the way I did." And ADD or inattentive adhd is very easy to miss by doctors, teachers etc. So point being, someone in your family could have adhd or add and unless you really know what to look for - you wouldn't know it. Point being, my brother-in-law has adhd.
Avatar n tn I have a 10 year old black son with O.D.D./ADHD ! What is the right meds for him?
Avatar m tn Any chance he has something like ADHD or ADD? Here are two links that should help you decide if he might. http://www.help4adhd.org/en/about/what http://www.livescience.com/22362-adhd-symptoms-guide.html I am surprised the teachers have not asked for testing of him. You might also want to look into buying "Cool down and work through anger" or "When I feel angry".
Avatar n tn Medications used for ADHD such as Ritalin are stimulants (although they effectively treat ADHD) so they can sometimes make a person agitated as a side effect over time. His doctor should rule out that. Also if he became deaf after having meningitis that disease if it affects a person can sometimes cause brain damage (which might be the cause of the deafness) so they should rule out any neurological change as the cause of any mental changes.
Avatar n tn In the US the guidelines state that a child can not be diagnosed with ADHD until age 6 as there is so much variability with kids before that age. Most are pretty wild. My son has a developmental delay similar to ADHD called sensory processing disorder. He potty trained before turning 4. He was actually easier than my younger son. I'm not sure that the problem you state is an ADHD problem or not. Impulse control and the inability to settle down may be.
Avatar f tn So desperate I went to an ADHD specialist psychiatrist and after making me fill in a questionnaire and speaking to me for 50 minutes; he decided I had the sort of space cadet qualities (circuitous thinking- diverging instead of converging thoughts) of the 'inattentive hypoactive (as opposed to hyperactive) dopamine deficient ADHD candidate' . He admitted he wasn't 100% sure (how can anyone be?) but decided to try me out on concerta.

Avatar f tn This book has a parent questionnaire at the back of it that you can fill in to get a sensory profile of your child. For example all of my sons senses are affected, but the ones with the most problems are tactile and auditory. She is a reputable professional who has given seminars to professionals and parents in our area and her parent questionnaire is used by our autism department.
1455599 tn?1285507900 i think your best bet is to get a second opinion, a GOOD Dr will not diagnose a child with ADD/ ADHD along with other mental illnesses til they have reached to age of 7yrs. most kids are hyper and do not listen to parents, and throw tantrums under the age of 7... my sister trusted her sons dr and started pumping the kid with all sorts of meds by 5 he had been diagnosed with ADD, ODD, ADHD, TURRETS And more...
Avatar m tn My child has ADHD but I believe is more then ADHD its his behavior at home. Doesn't want to do homework and is lazy to write anything on paper. Has problem understanding what he reads. When he does not get anything done he gets very angry. He answer back with disrespect and tells me to be quite. It has become more out of control as he gets older. I try many rules in the house. How can I discipline my child with respect?
Avatar f tn I'm still a work in progress :o), so I can't help with your questionairre; however there is a recent article in Clinical Care Options that discusses the term "cure" as is used in HCV management. Here's the addy: http://tinyurl.com/2m9fwn You'll probably be asked to register, but it's quick and free.

Avatar n tn The questionnaire is located at: www.medhelp.org/questionaire/ccfneuro2.htm Sorry about the confusion! Thank you for your time.
Avatar f tn Every child who is diagnosed with ADHD or any psychiatric disorder and taking prescribed medication needs to be seeing a mental health therapist. This is where you need to begin.
