463236 tn?1206707704 This is actually a gift and I hope your son uses it in the future. It is amazing how well ADHD children can focus when it is something they enjoy. I believe a lot of ADHD people have this ability. Was your other son evaluated by an autism specialist? If not and you are still concerned, I would schedule an appointment with one.
Avatar m tn its less overwhelming to the ADHD person also. Hang in thers and if you happen to kive in So Cal. Check out Loma Linda BHI. Its amazing and your insurance ahould pay for the program.

Avatar f tn The problem with really intelligent kids is that they problem solve so fast. And the problem with 4 year olds is that they don't have alot of self control. Put it together and ya - you've got problems. Throw the possibility of ADHD into the mix and everything gets a lot worse. I really don't know if he has ADHD. How long ago did the doctors see him and what kind of a doctor saw him?
Avatar n tn If anyone could provide me any checklist or form which would helps me in "DIAGNOSIS" of ADHD+PDD+AUTISTIC childrens? And if anyone could send me infomation about PDD?
Avatar f tn (in children) In adults, this type of thing would show up as an Axis II personality disorder. In children, particularly 4 (very young for this kind of diagnosis, ADD/ADHD as well - and I would hold off on the meds until a second or third opinion is obtained..cheaper than treatment I'm sure...) ALSO - (I have personal experience in this - my 5 yr old girl had wild tantrums, and I was very worried,, and took her to different drs...
Avatar m tn t seem to be paying attention that she is able to recall what you said. I have taught many children in the past that can prowl in their desk, play with an object, look out the window, etc. and still answer questions about the instruction taking place in the classroom. Some children are able to multi task while others are not. I would just suggest you keep an eye on this for changes. Children who can do this sometimes frustrate some teachers who don't quite understand what is going on.

Avatar n tn My son has ADD/ADHD and he takes vyvanse but the doctor also prescribed guafacine which is normally used with people with high blood pressure but it has been found that it works bettt6with children with ADD/ADHD. I really have seen a change in his anxiety and levels the vyvanse chemistry out. You should speak to your doctor about it. They say vyvanse is better for children to take anyway.
Avatar f tn self-reporting were used to determine whether methamphetamine was used during pregnancy in the exposed group, while in the comparison group mothers had a negative meconium screen and also self-reported no methamphetamine usage. 166 children who had been exposed to methamphetamine were compared to 164 with no exposure. An interviewer assed their behavior at the age of 3 years, and then again when they were 5, by examining a caregiver-reported Child Behavior checklist.
Avatar f tn Discoverering ADD/ADHD is becoming more common in adulthood. What kind of symptoms are you having?
Avatar f tn org/en/treatment/scales) Finally he may not (as I have said) have ADHD or ADD, but it would be nice to know. Here is info on symptoms of ADHD. See what you think. And remember he could also have ADD which is ADHD, but without the hyperactivity. The link is - http://www.help4adhd.
Avatar n tn Your son may well display ADHD, but it is important to arrange a thorough evaluation and not rush too quickly to the diagnosis. 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 I am a worried mum of 4, my 3 year old is so angry all the time, i am unsure of the symptoms of adhd but wondered if anyone could help me find a cause and a solution.....one example is every day when i pick him up from nursery he kicks and screams especially if they have changed the routine and this leaves both him and myself very upset.

454366 tn?1211245301 Please read the info on www.jonbarron.org on Bi-Polar disorder in children. The info is kinda scary; but I think you might help with finding other avenues to take. Peace be with you and keep the faith. Our kids are our future. Let's not just dope them up because we are told to. Let's not dope ourselves up either.
Avatar f tn How frustrating for you to have to find that out after the fact. In support of ADHD, however, these medications for children with ADHD without seizure disorders are a Godsend if diet changes and behavior modifications do not help. The right medication has to be found for each individual child just like other disorders. ADHD is neural disorder just as seizure disorders. Both affect the brain but in different ways.
327385 tn?1378360731 Your best bet is to try and find a peds doctor that specializes in ADD/ADHD. If she is found to have ADHD, so of the things she does might not go away, like the stealing. For me the last straw was when my daughter vandalized the neighbors boat, he wouldn't call the cops, so I did....she has stolen or vandalized a thing since. The only way I can describe my child with ADHD is like Pinocchio without the Jimmy Cricket (the little cricket telling him not to do bad things).
Avatar f tn 1. Destructiveness may be seen in both disorders but differs in origin. Children who are ADHD often break things carelessly while playing (“non-angry destructiveness”), whereas the major destructiveness of children who are bipolar is not a result of carelessness but tends to occur in anger. Children who are bipolar may exhibit severe temper tantrums during which they release manic quantities of physical and emotional energy, sometimes with violence and physical property destruction. 2.
Avatar f tn Does he attend pre-school? or is he around other children? In most cases (especially with boys) when they see other children going to the potty, they tend to want to try it more. He will go at his own pace, so just have patience. Also, you can try some childrens potty training books and videos (local library). Good Luck!
Avatar m tn The study showed that children with untreated ADHD or ADHD treated without stimulants had a faster increase in body mass index (BMI) than those without ADHD. Conversely, children with ADHD treated with stimulants demonstrated slower BMI growth early in childhood, but they rebounded later in adolescence with higher BMIs ― higher than in children without a history of ADHD or stimulant use.
