Adhd symptoms in class

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms in class


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 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.
5856747 tn?1403352282 ADHD is diagnosed on the bases of the child’s behaviour alone. This may be done using the International Classification of Diseases or ICD-10. There are no other tests to confirm the diagnosis and this again may cause difficulty in accepting ADHD as a disorder. Features of ADHD behaviour will include: • Inattention to instructions. • Inability to learn or retain. • Inability to stay with a specific task or to complete it. • Inability to hold attention to what is being said to them.

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.
327385 tn?1378364331 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 m tn By the way, I have seen several studies that show that sleep apnea can produce ADHD like symptoms. In fact, there have been several posters on here that have had sleep apnea, been treated and their daytime behaviors definitely changed. Has anybody ever commented about you snoring or breathing loud at night? "Regardless of type, an individual with sleep apnea is rarely aware of having difficulty breathing, even upon awakening.
Avatar f tn htm And I have several more that get even more comprehensive. In conclusion, ya he certainly does exhibit ADHD symptoms (and that is a lot easier to correct then autism). Do check out the tip toes. Definitely check out the SIDS - doctors are not real up on this so look at the web site and see what you think.
Avatar f tn Hello, in a way, ADHD is a problem of immaturity, because individuals with ADHD have a harder time doing the things we associate with maturity (such as tolerating boredom, persevering and being efficient). Young adults with ADHD are typically less 'mature' than their same aged peers, and it can be intensely frustrating for the person with the disorder and her loved ones (as you noted). Though it may take longer, most people with ADHD do find their niche.
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.
1453183 tn?1287852619 It is good that your doctors are taking him off the medication. Prescription stimulants may treat symptoms in the short-term, but in the long term they wreak havoc on the fragile dopamine system. Studies with rats at Harvard McClean University have shown that Ritalin use during juvenile years leads to depression in adulthood. This is similar to what happens to chronic users of illegal stimulants. My parents put me on Ritalin as a child. I cannot work because my depression is so disabling.
707438 tn?1240963240 It's much more logical to assume that we have different levels of this disorder and some of us are able, for what ever reasons, to learn to control some of the symptoms. I do see the creative side of ADHD - it's very evident in my own family but I do want to say that there is an alarming number of people in the prison population who test positive for it - as high as 30%. I have also experienced this side firsthand. Best of luck.
Avatar f tn First, I asked his pre-school and kindergarten teachers over a period of two years (ages 4-6) what his behavior was like in class and with the other students. Not one of those three teachers in that time frame expressed any concern about him; they each told me that while he is "exubrant" and "a typical, high-energy boy," nothing about what he did or how he acted seemed out of the ordinary to them.
Avatar n tn All my report cards from even as far back as primary all say the same ,,If only he paid as much attention in class as he does staring out the window, or does not listen.. even beside the course i have some features that could be related,, for instance when reading anything after every 3 or 4 sentances, or a paragrapth I usually have to go back and read again, sometimes x3.. i have also joked with my wife about being clumsey or forgeting stuff, although long term memory is excellent.
Avatar f tn What are the symptoms in an adult to look for ADD/ADHD? I think my husband may have this.
Avatar n tn not when im with my friends at lunch or break. in class i find it REALLY hard to concentrate, its like i dont even care and i can read the same simple sentence over and over again and i still wont even be able to recite it back or know what ive just read. Ive also been very forgetful lately. not like, i forgot to brush my teeth, but i cant remember what i said 2 minutes ago that kind of thing, thats been happening over the last few months. i also cant find the motivation to study at all!
Avatar f tn She did a complete exam with all kinds of blood work to rule out all kinds of food related allergies and such that could cause this behaviour. In the end, he has adhd, odd, and bipolar disorder which all run in the families. The hopes are that being caught at this age perhaps some of the curcuitry in his transmitters in his brain could be rewired and he may not need to be on meds the rest of his life. Life here is easier and he is doing better in school.
Avatar n tn well, my problem is that i have a real hard time paying attention in class, and its also realy hard for me to keep still. it feel like i have to move my feet or my arms every five seconds. I keep hearing these thinks about add and adhd. well i dont know if i have it or if its just all in my head becuase its my last year of high school and everyone says 12 grade is the most stress full year.

Avatar f tn He will become psychotic and that's of concern and that would just be the Seroquel. Adderal being in the class of medication its in would have physical withdrawal symptoms that could potentially be dangerous. Its essential to know the reason he is doing this. If its a matter of side effects (such as cognitive blunting) he should speak to his psychiatrist about available options.
Avatar n tn Our child does have facial twitching, shoulder shrugs, and various other things, as well as ADD symptoms like daydreaming in class, not completing assignments, being forgetful, etc. I could list them all but I'm sure that's really necessary. They did an EEG and blood work and urine tests to rule out other things such as lead and copper and such. Can anyone please help to explain all this and why it's so much - or are they all related?
Avatar n tn what do you think my son id feeling since he has adhd n he is three years old
Avatar n tn He's now undergoing developmental changes related to adolescence, and it could be that you are witnessing the symptoms of an emerging mood disorder (alongside his ADHD). Ask the clinician about this possibility. The chances of such an occurrence increase if there is a family history of mood disorder.
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 n tn Significantly lower levels of two omega-6 fatty acids and one omega-3 fatty acid (DHA) were found in the subjects with ADHD symptoms. In a 1995 study comparing plasma essential fatty acid levels in 53 boys with ADHD to a control group of 43 boys without ADHD, researchers found significantly lower levels of omega-3 fatty acids. In the April - May 1996 issue of Physiology & Behavior, Laura J.
Avatar f tn I could always read but not know what I read. In high school was in a special class but the teacher gave up on me. In college they never taught me either. But would read my assignments to me or put them on tape. That is how I got through school. I had good grades but probably could have had higher ones. I have overcompensated for my learning disabilities. I am 53 with a college degree, but my last speech therapist(had stroke) says only 10th grade reading, vocabulary, spelling level.
Avatar n tn Hello, I suffer from anxiety and OCD and likely have ADHD. I believe I have ADHD as years ago when I was in primary school the teaches told my parents that I should go on medication to focus due to my disruptions in class and I was placed in a "special" class for a number of years. My parents refused to put me on medication. I simply came accostomed to my way of thinking. Over the years I suffered from restless energy and did not focus very well.
Avatar f tn She had concerns about him not paying attention in class and having difficulty moving from one task to the other. We have had our own concerns about his behavior since he was very small so this came as no surprise to us when we started receiving calls from school. He has always displayed massive temper swings (running off crying) over very mild things like not being able to pass a ball right or having his older sister tease him.
Avatar n tn There are lots of reasons why kids misbehave, but I am curious who gave the ADHD/Bipolar diagnosis. The two often coexist and the symptoms you describe sound like both, although a thorough assessment of all of his behavior and his developmental history is necessary to accurately diagnose.
Avatar f tn I am currently being treated for an anxiety disorder and my doctor prescribed medication to help me focus in class and reduce anxiety and the medication has not helped the focusing part at all. Is it possible to have an anxiety disorder and something similar to ADD/ADHD?
