Avatar f tn They know what they do is naughty but they continue to do it day in day out. They are now attending theor 2nd preschool due to this behavior. They advise my husband and I to get them assessed for ADD. Im lost with no direction on what to do. Do they get better or do I have a problem.
Avatar f tn Look at the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV) and see if what you are seeing matches up with the symptoms or criteria for ADHD. Also, a Developmental Peditrician will be able to guide you through this process and/or help you find resources for your child. Although it may take a while to get an appt. it should be worth the wait.
Avatar n tn however, he is now easily angered and is becoming physically aggressive at times. Upon recommendation of the preschool, he was evaluated by county preschool screener who suggested sensory integrative dysfunction. This eval will be forwarded to a committee for review and results submitted within 1-2 weeks.
Avatar f tn This is an important difference from the previous guidelines and stems from a wealth of new evidence on ADHD treatment of preschool children and adolescents. For preschool-aged children, evidence-based behavioral therapy alone is recommended as the first step toward treating ADHD symptoms and associated impairment. Behavioral treatments may include behavioral parent training, classroom management, and/or peer interventions.
Avatar n tn my 3 year old has adhd and sensory processing disorder and will be starting preschool in october. part of the requirements for the preschool is that he has to be potty trained. he will either just sit on the potty and not go or will not sit long enough to go. i have bought him buzz lightyear underwear to help motivate him, but that didnt seem to help. yesterday i bought stickers to give him for at least sitting to try, but he says moma potty and will go sit on the potty and demand the sticker.
Avatar n tn He has been a fairly good child until recently or say about 2 or 3 months ago. It started out at preschool. Now he has been at this preschool for about 3 years now, but for some reason I am not sure he has started to lash out. My son is no angel & he has had his moments but latly he has been screaming, hitting, kicking, slapping, & poking his teachers & friends at school.
Avatar n tn When children so young are diagnosed with ADHD, the main symptoms that are causing problems are usually hyperactivity and impulsivity. Are these symptoms present with your son? It's possible, though it would be a bit unusual, that the behaviors you describe in the scghool setting are chiefly a manifestation of his ADHD. If so, the situation warrants treatment with medication.
Avatar n tn As for sitting or standing. Can be typical 5 year old behavior. Has she done any preschool yet?
Avatar f tn We took her to a psychiatrist and they then diagnosed her with ADHD. Once on medication we put her in a private preschool. They didn’t kick her out of this school but, the teachers complained often to us about her wandering. Now…she is in Kindergarten. She is still very hyper and wanders a lot. Other problems are she sneaks stuff such as items on the teacher’s desk or items in other children’s backpacks.
Avatar n tn When my son, "Jack," started preschool as a 2 yr old, he was a very pleasant child, with no aggressive or hyperactive tendencies whatsoever. In the 2 yr old class, he met a boy, "John," who is very aggressive. A typical act was for John to pull Jack's hair (no provocation) til he almost pulled him to the floor, then run away laughing. I saw this for myself. Jack started hitting, & then went beyond John to include other kids.
Avatar f tn // I do know that kids with ADHD can focus if they are interested in something (like a video game for example). I am not saying that he has ADHD, but since this does seem to appear both at home and at school, it probably is worth looking into. This link should prove helpful -
Avatar m tn running, jumping, climbing, figidity/squirm when eating or trying to carry on a conversation, talks nonstop, very loud (hard for her to control the tone of her voice), does not want to listen, when company is over she is very hyper and loud (trying to be center of attention),and when she gets excited about something she jumps as she tells you. She attends preschool 2x a wk. for 3 hrs. and the teacher says she does well.
Avatar f tn I assume your daughter is in kindergarten. Is it an all day kindergarten? Was she in preschool and was this where the ADHD was noted?
Avatar f tn Screaming, yelling, and running around are not products or symptoms of ADHD. ADHD misbehaviors are inattentive behaviors such as talking out of turn, etc... What your son requires is discipline. Perhaps your son requires a more structured school setting like day treatment where there is more structure. But I really think the focus should be more on discipline than medication.
Avatar n tn The teachers said he exhibited ADHD like symptoms, always running around, not focusing, even during free play. Impossible to settle/stop chatting during story time. That is 100% opposite of how he is at home and on playdates etc, so I thought it might be the school environment--huge class, 22 kids. I switched him to a smaller, more structured preschool. There, the teachers said he was doing alright, except that he was getting in other kids faces and annoying them.
Avatar n tn Ironically, her preschool teacher tells me she is wonderful at school and enjoys having her in class. By the time her siblings were this age, they knew how to behave. What can I do to change her behavior?
Avatar f tn She does not attend preschool and stays at home with mom. Do these symptoms sound like OCD and/or ADHD? Would a behavior specialist be able to help our situation?
Avatar f tn My 3.5 year old switched to a new preschool 4 months ago. Since he has started the new school we have had several incidents. The second week of school he hit his teacher and since then he has hit her and other children 7-10 times.
Avatar n tn For preschool-aged children, evidence-based behavioral therapy alone is recommended as the first step toward treating ADHD symptoms and associated impairment. Behavioral treatments may include behavioral parent training, classroom management, and/or peer interventions.
Avatar m tn Hi, I am also the CL on the ADHD forum so do have some interest in this question. First, to say, "His doctor suggested that I continue to keep him focused with coloring, puzzle, etc. to keep it from turning into ADHD? " is utter BS by the doctor. ADHD is not prevented by keeping him focused and that statement would make me have some concerns about your doctor in this area of medicine. I would first find out if he is the youngest child in daycare.
Avatar n tn Eventually, he was kicked out of preschool and I took him to a child psychiatrist to be evaluated for ADHD, ADD or bipolar disorder. That dr told me he had none of those things. It was recommended that I continue to keep his punishments consistent. When he entered Kindergarten a few months later, I was constantly receiving phone calls from the principal regarding these same behavoirs. They suggested he had ADHD. He was tested by his pediatrician in November of 2008 and does have ADHD.

Avatar n tn I need help with my three year old. She starts preschool next year and I am afraid she won't make it. She is forever into everything, and even after she gets in trouble she continues to do it. She is outright defiant. Extremely bullheaded as well. She can also be mean. She will sometimes throw things at her 10 yr. old sister, she hits us with toys, and is terrible to our two young cats.
Avatar n tn i have a conference this afternoon and i am terrified that they are going to tell me he has to go back to preschool. he is smart and he was in all day preschool for 3 years and i had about 5 or 6 behavior issues in the 3 years he was there. he talks out of turn and doesn't listen when he is told to do something. now the teacher is saying that his behavior is actually a disruption to the class and she described to me agressive and bizarre behavior that just doesn't make sense.
