Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms classroom


Avatar f tn The scores on his 2nd grade achievement test places his intellectual ability at mid year 3rd grade. DO my son have symptoms of ADD-ADHD. Should I retain my son in the second grade to improve on the weakness stated by his teacher.
Avatar n tn This is not to say that, if she is diagnosed with ADHD, it explains all of her behavior, but may be a component of it. I would revisit the ADHD issue, and have her evaluated again, including collecting data via standardized checklists that are widely accepted as helping to establish this descriptive diagnosis. As an aside, it's not unusual for children who display ADHD to also have the ability to be attentive and focused in particular circumstances.
Avatar f tn I would definitely look at the SIDS site because you do treat that differently from ADHD. and he could have both. What is distressing to me is that he could have ADHD and the only help the doctors gave you is to prescribe meds? I should add that if they are necessary - I have nothing against meds. Millions of kids are on them. But I would hope that parents and schools have tried other things first. So what to do?
Avatar m tn Hey Chris, you are certainly describing some of the symptoms of AD/HD - probably more ADD. One sure symptom for me was to examine a kids test and look for stupid mistakes. Kid would do really well, and then start to self destruct on simple questions later in the test. They just couldn't focus - and they wanted to. In the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley (you might want to buy it), she basically says on p.
Avatar f tn Thats a very good question. There does appear to be outside influences that might also lead to adhd symptoms - like pesticides. But the overwhelming amount does seem to be genetic. Problem is that it might be the uncle that had it, or a parent that had it and nobody realized it. Basically as a child if you had adhd before about 1980 ish - unless it was a really hyperactive state of adhd - it probably was not going to be diagnosed.
Avatar f tn have a hyperactive 5 and a half yr. old boy. Hyper since birth.Changing diapers was difficult. I am used to this and it has gotten a bit easier to manage since then. Alot of his behavior seems like ADHD,the type that is hyper but "takes everything in". He never liked loud music,covers his ears. And also complained once of lights being too bright at Gymnastics class (which he DID NOT LIKE). He will interact with other children and isn't shy once he gets comfortable.
Avatar n tn It has been my experince that anger often results from frustration. Kids with adhd are put in a classroom situation where they have to sit and pay attention, wait their turn and everything else that requires them to subdue their own hyperactivity. My son does well, behaviorally at school. However, when he gets home, its another issue. It seems that he takes out all his frustrations of the day on me, his dad and his siblings.

But, in school, how far did you get and what was your GPA. I have seen many adult posts where they were intelligent enough to get through high school, but had a lot more problems in college.
Avatar f tn It is very common for children on the Autism Spectrum to have symptoms of ADD, ADHD, anxiety disorders. Many doctors are hesitant to give a dual diagnosis. Kudos to your Doctor! Has your doctor given you referrals to the nearest Autism Society yet? Do you have any specific questions or just looking for support right now?
927672 tn?1244153247 * frequent temper tantrums * excessive arguing with adults * active defiance and refusal to comply with adult requests and rules * deliberate attempts to annoy or upset people * blaming others for his or her mistakes or misbehavior * often being touchy or easily annoyed by others * frequent anger and resentment * mean and hateful talking when upset * seeking revenge The symptoms are usually seen in multiple settings, but may be more noticeable at home or at
Avatar n tn The pysc doc told me I have ADD and alot of docs misdiagnos because bi-polar and ADD have alot of the same symptoms. You sound alot like me and my symptoms. I have been reading a book that has been very helpful and amazing and think you could benifet from it." Driven to Distraction" Recognizing and coping with ADD By Edward M Hallowell,M.D.,and John J. Ratey,M.D.
Avatar n tn what do you think my son id feeling since he has adhd n he is three years old
Avatar f tn Hey Kelly, one of the symptoms of ADHD is a lack of filters and impulsiveness. Both of those things can lead to anger outburts. Basically it makes it harder for you to count to 10. Ritilin gave you that time. But I would think at your age that you can learn to deal with it. And yes, I would think that Anger Management classes would give you some of those skills. However, you need to know what your triggers are.
Avatar f tn There is an excellent chance that her anxiety is due to the ADHD and SPD, and some SPD symptoms are also autism symptoms. Here is a very good link to SPD - And, if you have any SPD questions, we have a great forum with a leader who has successfully dealt with this with her own child at about the same age. It wouldn't hurt to read some of her own posts.
Avatar m tn He has just had them repeated, but has only been with his teachers for 2 weeks so it's too early to report. He has symptoms of several disorders-ADHD, Aspergers, bi-polar, OCD, ODD. Our biggest problem is that everyone focuses on his school work where he is a straight A student and has attended the magnet school for the gifted. I am not at all concerned about his academic abilities. I am extremely concerned about his social skills.
Avatar n tn I do think that you need to see a child development peditrician or child psychiatrist that specializes in ADHD. Was he formally diagnosed with ADHD by a child psychologist or specialist, other than a pediatrician? Pediaticians are usually not qualified to eveluate ADHD. I am also surprised that your doctor would tell you to up the medication if the medication is causing tics.
134578 tn?1546634665 I was in my first graders classroom once a week by working with the teacher and finding a classroom job for myself. I was the 'media lady' for one and the 'reading lady' for another. The next year, I was the 'spelling lady' and I've sat and done math work with kids having a hard time. I get myself in there. And in first and second grade, you can still do it. (sadly, my I'm pretty much locked out of my 4th graders class now. boo hoo.
Avatar m tn We enroll him in a mainstream pre school program with Autistic, ADHD, and run of the mill four year olds. Now for the past 6 months he's learning, asking questions, tracing, and doing a lot of what he had problems with. However, he is very energetic and always trying to get attention. Whenever he does somthing wrong, we try to ignore him, you can see him looking for our response.
Avatar m tn Richard Saul March 14, 2014 Over the course of my career, I have found more than 20 conditions that can lead to symptoms of ADHD, each of which requires its own approach to treatment. Raising a generation of children—and now adults—who can't live without stimulants is no solution.
Avatar f tn Symptoms must have been going on for at least 6 months before ADD/ADHD can be diagnosed. When and where do the symptoms appear? The symptoms of ADD/ADHD must be present in multiple settings, such as at home and school. If the symptoms only appear in one environment, it is unlikely that ADD/ADHD is to blame." So if the child has be diagnosed by a doctor, then its probably not an "over-zealousness".
Avatar m tn I have Bad ADHD and Bi-Polar and had unnacceptable side effects from Strattera, Paxil, Trileptal, Lamictal, Abilify, Lexapro, and Focalin. I have a low tolerance for drugs, but seem to be able to quit cold turkey with no issues from addicted drugs. Past suicidal ideation is an issue. Everytime I take dextramathoraphine for a cough, I seem to be a little happier, can focus on work better, and don't spill my guts to all my co-workers.
184674 tn?1360864093 I found this list on quite a few websites about the symptoms of ADHD. I've put asterisks by the symptoms he has regularly.
414608 tn?1221757868 he would thow things in the classroom and have tantrums frequently. He is very smart and academically, his grades were ok, it was just his behavior wasn't and him not being able to sit down. During the summer, we took him to a therapist who diagonsed him with with the ADHD with ODD. She prescribed Adderall which worked for two months, then the same behavior started to come back so we increased the aAdderal from 5mg to 10 mg.
Avatar f tn For preschool-aged children, evidence-based behavioral therapy alone is recommended as the first step toward treating ADHD symptoms and associated impairment. Behavioral treatments may include behavioral parent training, classroom management, and/or peer interventions.
Avatar m tn I guess the main reason I bring this up is that even though all the symptoms do point to ADHD, there are some things like Sensory Processing Disorder that have very similar symptoms and I would want somebody with experience to possibly rule other factors out. One of the things that I do find unusual is the length of time he crys. As an elementary school principal, we had kids that did cry in kindergarten. They usually stopped after a period of time. His crying is unusual.

Avatar f tn It might also not be ADHD if the behaviors occur in the classroom but nowhere else. A child who shows some symptoms would not be diagnosed with ADHD if his or her schoolwork or friendships are not impaired by the behaviors.[30] Even if a child’s behavior seems like ADHD, it might not actually be ADHD; careful attention to the process of differential diagnosis is mandatory. Many other conditions and situations can trigger behavior that resembles ADHD.
Avatar n tn delays, inclusing senory integration issues. The ADHD symptoms have always been there, but as he grew, he did not "grow out" of the behaviors they got much much worse. He is doing fairly well in most areas and has "caught up" nicely after years of intense therapies both at home and school. Anyway, I just wanted to mention that so far we have had the best luck with Ritalin LA.
Avatar m tn So, those are some of my thoughts and I could go on and on-- I would, to be totally honest, look into sensory prior to add/adhd as the symptoms often overlap and the therapy/treatment is different. However, sensory strategies do often benefit an add/adhd kid. Sandman will tell you all about add/adhd and recommends a book that helps one understand more about it. Knowing about both sensory and add/adhd will help you when it comes time to add intervention if deemed necessary.
