Adhd symptoms in children test

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms in children test


Avatar f tn For now, medications should control the symptoms and psychosocial support can tame the manifestations of adhd as well. Regards and God bless...
Avatar f tn Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD, is one of the most common mental disorders that develop in children. Children with ADHD have impaired functioning in multiple settings, including home, school, and in relationships with peers. If untreated, the disorder can have long-term adverse effects into adolescence and adulthood. Asperger's Disorder is a milder variant of Autistic Disorder.
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.
Avatar n tn ive just taken an online test to see if my son has adhd it said that he is showing symtoms. he is 5 years old. his teacher has said that he is the brightest boy in the class but finds it hard to pay attention and fidgets all the time, he shouts out alot and when he is at home he never listens to a word i say when i ask him to behave. he runs and jumps about and never walks and talks constantly i have to ask him repeatedly every time i want him to do something. do you think this is adhd?
Avatar f tn All of the things that you have listed - I have seen in ADHD kids. What you need to do is to start to research what ADHD is and how to deal with the consequences of it. Understanding ADHD really makes a big difference in how you deal with the child. I mentioned the following books in a post below. Its worth your time to check them out. - "ADHD and Me, What I learned from lighting fires at the dinner table," by Blake Taylor.
Avatar f tn school nagging about me taking a test for my 8 year old (ADHD TEST) okay looking over the test i see questions that are not suitable for a school aged kid in 3 grade so i only answer a few of them. Called yesterday to tell me that the result of this test are in, make appt to see them. But I was told that they would send them home...yeah cannot trust them.... anyone have this issue with there school???
Avatar n tn I have only recently learned of the ODD. My daughter has been diagnosed with "mild" ADHD. Her pychologist also told us that she is extremely bright. She is doing well academically in kindergarten; her teacher said she is above average in most areas of learning. Our problem is her behavior. She not only falls into four symptoms of ODD, but exhibits all six of the criteria.
707438 tn?1240963240 I wonder what your doctor thinks happens to children who have ADD/ADHD. They like, magically cure sometime in teen years? I agree maybe you need to change docs. I'm sure I have it, and certainly had it all my childhood. If I were a child today I might be put on Ritalin to improve focus - although I never had the "hyperactivity", I can NOT sit through boring stuff. At 49, I still can't. It sounds like you are thinking maybe you have ADD, frustrated?
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 f tn Back in the day I knew that my daughter was different than everyone else, I knew that the way she was acting was different than the other kids her age, but I refused to have her on medication because I didn't believe in medications for children. I was told she was adhd, bipolar, and odd.
Avatar n tn One thing to keep in mind is whether the symptoms tend to impair the child's ability to master the important areas in his life. Many children display symptoms which might warrant the diagnosis of ADHD, but the symptoms don't really interfere with their functioning. Impairment is necessary to meet the criteria for a diagnosis of ADHD.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar n tn what do you think my son id feeling since he has adhd n he is three years old
Avatar n tn // Meds might well help you - or not. There really is only one way to find out. If you do have ADHD you won't get dependent on them. If you don't have ADHD, they can be seriously addicting. For that reason alone (plus a bunch or others), you need to see a doctor that can help you. I would try to find a psychologist or psychiatrist that specials in ADHD. Stay away from your general MD.
Avatar f tn My 15 yr old son was recently diagnosed with ADHD using 3 surveys. I really wanted him to be tested using WISC since he is also gifted (140 OLsaT 3 years ago). It seems like our current psychiatrist allows us to decide our own course with medication to see what would work best. He is currently on 25 mg Vyvance and the last month he has said it made a world of difference with his attention in school.
Avatar m tn Really, I feel like his combination of his symptoms doesn't have a name that can be summarized in an acronym. I feel like his doctors are forcing his pathology into a diagnosis that they understand and can treat according to some predetermined format. It's not working. I am looking for some kind of residential facility that could observe him over a period of time and offer recommendations that would actually serve my boy rather than some protocol that serves some majority.
Avatar f tn And yes, there are several things that can cause ADHD symptoms that are not ADHD - and they should be checked out! But your symptoms are also classic ADHD as well as your self medication reactions. To get a feeling for what adult ADHD is like check out the link and the advice posted here. You ask about resources for people like you. My first question would be - what kind of a doctor is your doctor?
Avatar n tn I have 3 children all with ADHD. My son is on Adderall XR and my daughters are on Focalin. All 3 of my children take 1000mgs of Omega 3 fatty acids and they have been taking the fish oil for at least a year and I do not see any differnce whatsoever. I am just giving it to them because it states its good for them and helps with general well being. Just wanted to let you know.
Avatar f tn Executive functioning is the new key word to describe some of the ADHD symptoms. This is a really good link that explains part of that. Medication wise it sounds like you just have not found either the right dose or the right med. Instant release meds (compared to extended release) tend to hit harder. Of course, the advantage is that they are out of your system sooner so can be taken on more of an as needed basis.
15915009 tn?1488871938 I am hoping to be officially in remission after having a TSI antibodies test in a few weeks and another endo appointment in a month. If I had any advice to anyone, especially parents for parents with children with Graves' Disease, my advice would be open with them, be sure that you see the signs early because kids, including me, don't know better. You don't want any kid to struggle this pain that Graves' brings.
Avatar f tn It could be the meds that are giving him mood swings, and I agree with April2, ADHD is often misdiagnosed and the diagnosis is so overly abused and children are on a controlled substance for absolutely no reason. Also, there must be some doc somewhere getting paid alot of money to keep coming up with all these new diagnosis names that are just ridiculous.
Avatar m tn 'Rebound' Obesity Seen After ADHD Treatment Published: Mar 19, 2014 | Updated: Mar 20, 2014 Children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) who are treated with stimulants may eventually be susceptible to "rebound weight gain," a longitudinal study suggested. Using the electronic health records (EHR) of nearly 164,000 children in the Geisinger Health System in Danville, Pa.
Avatar n tn Just the idea that they would have to live thier lives in such pain is very unnerving to me. Knowing that Manic Depression often ends in suicide makes me want to help them in any way I can. I have been to Manic Depression support groups but they have never helped. They depress me and I start to think it is hopeless.
1390055 tn?1365618655 - when celiac disease triggers in children, a common misdiagnosis is ADD or ADHD - It typically results in low seratonin and melatonin, because of poor tryptophan absorption, and that results in anger, anxiety, and stress issues and depression, quite often. Not to mention a host of other psychological issues that can result from it. - it can cause issues with the heart, including the feeling of the heart pounding or racing when there seems to be no change (as you mentioned happened as a child).
Avatar f tn However, a friend told me about flax oil and how it is suppose to help with syptoms of adhd. Currently we are trying it and putting the flax in a smoothie type drink. My son is begging for his "special" snack now. I haven't noted a lot of changes yet, but it does seem to be helping his sleep.
Avatar n tn He sounds like a very sweet little guy. But I would be prepared for a diagnosis of ADHD, really. His symptoms sound classic, and for him to come to the attention of TWO separate preschools, with behaviors that are so far out of the norm that they call and tell you, that's pretty telling. My oldest was exactly like that, and although you cry a lot at first, he's a terrific guy. Sweet natured, smart, delightful.
Avatar n tn I demanded the school bring in someone to test my childs iQ... This assesment was done and to the schools suprise he was very bright, so much so they had to arrange special classes for him....But this did not fix his violent behaviour.... He would hit me if he did not get what he wanted, he would steal, lie, kick furniture, scream, hit his head against the wall, just as a few.... So I took him to a doctor who diagnosied him with ODD...
Avatar f tn thanks for the response. the more i look into this the more I think I agree with what you were saying about diagnosis in the 70's & 80's. That seems very true. I struggled ALL the way thru school. From 1st grade thru my BA degree!
Avatar dr m tn In another contrasting study, there was no difference in the rate of obstructive sleep apnea between controls and children with ADHD. One thing that’s for certain, many children with ADHD, even if they don’t officially have sleep apnea, will have major sleep breathing or sleep hygiene issues. This situation is similar to patients who don’t have obstructive sleep apnea but have upper airway resistance syndrome, where they still stop breathing multiple times during the night.
Avatar n tn Then the next year, I remember this one small episode where I the class teacher how much each of us scored in a 25 marks class test and when she returned me my paper in which I had scored 23 if I remember, she said "yes, keep on copying this way and you will make it" when I genuinely hadn't.
