Adhd symptoms dyslexia

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms dyslexia


Avatar n tn Im 34. A few months ago I got to know I have 2 arachnoid cysts. One is 6cm x 5.5cm. No headaches nor seizures. As my neurological exam was normal my neuro-surgeon was about to discharge me for good, so I told him that I've seen an important deterioration in regards to my language skills (I always had a few mild dyslexia symptoms but now I have many others & they are getting worse with time). My big cyst displaces my broca and Wernicke areas where language are produced.
Avatar f tn For example it is quite common for children on the autistic spectrum, or with ADHD to also have dyslexia. There is also the possibility of a child diagnosied with dyslexia to have traits or aspects of other disorders. Some children get dual diagnosis, others have traits. For example my son is diagnosed as being on the autistic spectrum and also has many traits of both dyslexia and dyscalculia. Tantrums are common in autism. I suspect also with ADHD.
1053987 tn?1279304510 The key to distinguishing between the two is that, to warrant a diagnosis of ADHD, the symptoms must have been present in childhood. The ADHD-like symptoms of BPII begin at any time with the onset of the disorder.
Avatar f tn Can anyone tell me does Straterra help ODD symptoms of ADHD? My 17 year old special needs daughter has been diagnosed ADHD with ODD for 10yrs, she has the other Dyspraxia, Dyslexia etc extras as well. Recently at a hospital appointment it was decided to put her on Strattera after being on first normal Ritalin then about 7 years ago Concerta, the goal being she eventually, hopefully will be able to just be on Strattera to help her and GOODBYE RITALIN!!!!
Avatar n tn I have a seven year old daughter, and with all the information that I have read about dyslexia, I think she may have it. However, her teacher believes I may be jumping to conclusions. She just thinks she may be slower at developing her skills for reading and writing, but when I see my daughter struggle so hard to the point that she is in tears, I personally think she cannot read what is front of her because she does not see the information the way that I do.
Avatar m tn I agree to go with their interests. I have a son on the autistic spectrum. He can immediately memorise his reading book, but cannot actually read yet. He is 7.5 years old. He loves TV/DVDs and recently he has been learning Greek from watching DVDs sent from Greece (my husband is Greek). So he has begun to tell me what certain phrases in Greek mean! I think that along with autism, children with ADHD and dyslexia etc find the way that reading/writing is taught today difficult to access.
Avatar n tn Hi, all of your symptoms point to a possible hormonal problem rather than ADHD. The lack of concentration, lack of focus, loss of interest/inability to do the things you used to love, Weight gain, even possible depression.Those are classic symptoms of a Thyroid problem or a Hormonal imbalance.If so, your symtoms are not going to get better on their own and they will probably get worse. You should see your doctor who can run a simple blood test to check those things for you.
Avatar n tn she can read well, but comprehension is not great, she tends to rush, not stop at periods etc., but I thought that was all due to ADHD. How do I get dyslexia diagnosed?

Avatar f tn My son was dx with Dyslexia and ADHD at a young age. He had a very hard time in school. Several years later he was a straight A student, but we found out he had hashimoto's disease and it can come and go. Hyper/Hypo and this can cause a learning problems. Never hurts to check the thyroid and antibodies.
Avatar n tn Kids with ADHD often have aggression and conduct problems. Kyle's was solved by adding essential fatty acids to his diet. He has used Efalex since May 1999, but there are other good EFA products on the market that can improve behavior. The key seems to get 480 mg DHA per day along with the other Omega-3 fatty acids (specifically long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids). Kyle also needs AA and Efalex is one of the few EFA products that constains AA.

Avatar f tn Is Juvenile Rhuematoid Arthritis an Auto immune Disorder? I was diagnosed with JRA as a child and suffered several other symptoms as well with no real explanation from the doctors as to what I actually have.

Avatar f tn Add, adhd, and dyslexia run in my family. Everyone on my dad's side deals with one of these. Some say it's not genetic but I beg to differ. One thing that helped my cousins hyperactivity was avoiding red dye in foods and not being treated special because of his add. As in he got punished just like any other kid. But no two kids are the same.

(he is at grade level, but barely, and it didn't come with ease) -Isn't "behind enough" or "bad enough" to be helped in the school setting. -Hides or covers up weaknesses with ingenious compensatory strategies; easily frustrated and emotional about school reading or testing.
Avatar f tn I was just complaining about my typing/dyslexia to my girlfriend. This feels crazy. I also feel as if I have adhd now. I definitely did not feel this way before I got so sick.
Avatar n tn The child in question is a 12 year old male that has been diagnosed with ADHD, LD, and Dyslexia. The mother has attended a conferene on sensory intergration and believes her son may have this condition, as does one of the doctors that gave his current diagnoses.
Avatar n tn Also, it could show up as something different but still in the same family so to speak. For instance, Autism, Dyslexia, ADD or ADHD and Tourettes Syndrome are sort of in the same Family but each is different or can be in combination such as Autism with ADD or ADHD. I am not saying that the person you mentioned as being retarded has any of these, just using it as an example. You may have nothing to worry about. I would try to find out if there is anything back in the family -- genetics .
Avatar m tn http://************.com/news/2013/10/08/adult-adhd-remains-undertreated/60473.html A new European study finds that only a small proportion of adults ever receive a proper ADHD diagnosis and treatment, despite the fact that up to two-thirds of children with this disorder continue to have it into adulthood. Although the estimated incidence of ADHD is approximately 3-4 percent, the diagnostic prevalence is below 0.5 percent. That's a huge difference. Dr.
