Adhd symptoms in a two year old

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms in a two year old


Avatar n tn My son displayed full blown symptoms at 3, 4, 5, and 6 but I would not allow any medications and handled it through diet, relaxation techniques, and a very structured schedule with consistancy, consistancy, and more consistancy. When he was 4 1/2 yrs old, I took him in for a consultation at the request of his pediatrician. I was instructed my the doctor to allow my son to roam freely throughout the room so that he could observe what he actually was doing.
Avatar n tn His older brother by eight years has had enough of the behavior also, he thinks the five year old gets special attention because of the way he behaves. Our house is in a upraor most of the time because of our problem. I would like some insight what to do.

Avatar m tn I got custody of my 7 year old nephew along with his two sisters and 1 brother about two years ago. All four if them were diagnosed with ADHD and on medication. After dealing with his behaviors I feel like their may be something else going on, but am having a difficult time pin pointing it. He definitely has all of the ADHD symptoms, but some added on top.
Avatar n tn I have a six year old daughter who has been "Hyper" and overly sensative since she was born. When she was two I took her to the doctor because I was having such a hard time with the crying and frustration and hyper out of control behavior. She was out of control, rolling on the floor, opening the door and running into the hall, climbing on the exam table, turning off and on the lights, ect.
Avatar n tn My friend recently said she ate a couple of slices of pizza and instantly experienced severe ADHD symptoms afterwards...probably the wheat, etc., in the crust! Best Wishes!
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 The on-line surveys can be useful tools to see if a person might display symptoms typical of ADHD, but a thorough assessment will consider a child's medical history, family history, current functioning at home and in school, possible alternative explanations for the symptoms identified on the surveys, etc.
Avatar f tn Hi simplystanding, I don't have kids with ADHD, but I have taught many, many, many of them during the last 39 years. And yes, the things you mention sound very familiar!!! Many times ADHD is noticed early in school. However, if a child is smart, they will get by with B's and then C's and then finally the subject matter will be such that they can't get by on inherent intelligence (things like common denominators) and their school situation will rapidly spiral downwards.
Avatar m tn It could be that a lack of maturity in the youngest kids in the class is being misinterpreted as symptoms of a behavioral disorder," from - Now this doesn't mean that he doesn't have ADHD, but it is something to think about. Your doctor did the correct thing in doing the survey for both school and home. Perhaps the only place that did not follow the guidelines was the immediate prescription of medication.
Avatar f tn We do not believe he has ADHD. When he is with his father and me, he acts like a normal 8 year old boy. He is a little hyper but nothing unusual. He and his sister have confided in us about what goes on at their mother's. His mother appears to be verbally abusive and that is when he acts out. At her house, he bangs his head off the wall and even threatened to jump out a second story window because she had said to him, "What did I do to deserve such a terrible child?".
Avatar n tn My 11 year old is currently being reassessed by the local health authority for his adhd. I have had problems with him since he was about 3 years old. Just over two years ago I took him to a leading private clinic and they conducted a thorough assessment on him and concluded that he does have adhd, but due to his high IQ is not experiencing problems in school as he is intelligent enough to cope for reasonable periods.
1712422 tn?1443341101 And yes, typically, doctors won't prescribe meds for a 3 year old - but there are exceptions. To be diagnosed with ADHD you must have the symptoms in two different places, so most doctors wait until the child is in school to make an official diagnosis. It is amazing that she is still going at 3am. Does she still nap? Have her own quiet room? Older siblings that keep her going? And, of course, she may have ADHD.
Avatar n tn And yet her teachers (albeit a 17 year old assitant with an ADHD brother and her 21 year old assistant cousin, and her aunt who is the main teacher who had 11 kids of her own, many grandchildren and decades of experience) keep telling me to have her tested. She is not a bad kid at home. Yes, she has more energy and is facinated by everything. She can't sit at the dinner table too long, but she finishes her food and she is not violent ever. What should I do? Where can I get her tested?
Avatar f tn I have a degree in early childhood and was always under the impression that a child CAN NOT be diagnosed with ADD/ADHD until the age of 7. It is really hard to say a 4 year old has ADD- they aren't supposed to have an attention span really. A child's punishment (like sitting in the corner) should last for as many minutes as the child's age... WHY? Because that's about how long the child will be able to sit there, doing nothing, without throwing a fit. Example- almost 5 years old?
Avatar n tn I have a 4 year old and he has also been diagnosed with ADHD with ODD. We have had major meltdowns that can last for hours. He often has no idea why he is crying. He lacks any ability to self sooth. He has had aggressive outbursts including hitting siblings and teachers. I have has to take him to 5 different places and specialists to confirm his diagnosis. He was started on Adderall 2.5 in the morning, afternoon and dinner. The medicine at first was great.

Avatar m tn His face will turn red and he looks like he's going to pop. Occassionally, when in a disagreement with his 11-year-old sister, he will hit her. He will hold on to emotions for a very long time. For instance, if we don't allow him to do something, like open a particular door, or whatever, he may start crying FOUR DAYS LATER and blurt out, "But I wanted to open the door!

Avatar m tn I am a 19 year old who has had a long list of odd symptoms for as long as I can remember. I have never really thought about ADD/ADHD however as I didn't realize some of the issues were associated with the disorder. I would like to get peoples thoughts as to whether or not this list of symptoms seems to fit the bill for ADHD, or if perhaps it is something else. I clearly plan to see a doctor soon but would still like to gather as much information and ideas as possible.
Avatar f tn Hi there! I have a two year old son and a one year old son. My two year old has always been a "high needs child". My son has severe anger and aggression issues. Ever since he has been able to crawl, he has been a head banger. I brought this up to our family physician who assured me that this was just a stage.
Avatar f tn But that does need to be looked into as I have seen several posts, not to mention a good friend whose 6 year old had the same problem. Its a physical problem that needs to be watched and corrected as soon as possible as it can lead to major problems later on if not corrected. Your pediatrician should be up on this. If not go to an orthopedic specialist.
Avatar f tn To get an ADHD diagnosis, you have to show the symptoms in two different places. So I tend to doubt that he would qualify. Also 6 year old boys can be very active. Especially when they have been stuck in school for many hours. They just need to get it out of their system. The best thing for him and you is to find something very active that he can do after school. If he can burn up that energy, he will be very different at home.
Avatar n tn He started having behavioral issues when he was 2 1/2 everything from bouncing off the falls to repetitive behaviors like flipping light switches to figuring out how to break out of the house. When he was 3 and a 1/2 his dad left for a year long deployment to Iraq followed by 6 months of him living in Las Vegas to finish his enlistment and me and my two kids living in LA where we had relocated when he deployed.
Avatar n tn Just a thought that you may need to add a little more fun into your child's life. I had to re read that you were talking about a 4 year old as it sounded like he was older with your comments about the issues. This is not a criticism but is more of an observation as to something that might be a clue as to what is going on. Wishing you luck and may it all work out.
Avatar n tn Is it possible for my 40 year old husband to have ADHD? My 12 year old son has been diagnosed with ADHD, and my 15 year old son is possibly too. He has classic traits of ADHD but has never been told he has it.If you need any more information let me know. Thnaks in advance.
Avatar f tn // Since you mentioned, "if the discipline fits the crime." which is a really, really important concept. Here is a really good link on that.
Avatar m tn My 11 year old son diagnosed with ADHD deperission. He is taking meds that I feel couter act one another....reperidone.25mg 2 x day, vyvanse 30 mg 1 x a day, zoloft 1/2 25mg a day, and methyphidate 10 mg 1 x a day in afternoon. Help. Does these different medicines seem necessary. He is still have concentration issues.
Avatar f tn To say that you should not consider getting your child diagnosed until they are 7 or 8 kinda of eliminates a year or two of possible help for them and you.
