427258 tn?1266445242 My (very soon to be) 4 y/o old is going through evaluations to diagnose a possible learning disability since he's exhibited some concerns in pre-school. The evaluator has said she's sure he has ADHD, but also shows some traits of a child with asperger's syndrome (sp). Since at this time, ADHD is the only 'definitive' diagnosis, I was wondering if some one could tell me some webistes, or books they have read to help them understand it all and how to help my son.
Avatar n tn My so has been diagnosis with ADHD has been on Med for two plus years, but this think pooping in his pants just came about, about six months ago. The strange think is that he will walk around like he doesn't smell anything.
Avatar f tn Yes. He is in therapy and has been since he was 3. He is in mainstream school. He tested as gifted. But he has ADHD. OCD and ODD. This behavior is new and I don't know how to help him stop or even why he does it.
Avatar n tn He climbs on everything i tell him to stop or send him to his room for a time out for jumping on the couch but he continues to as soon as hes out. I have had some concerns of ADHD, but i still need some advice on how to deal with him.
Avatar f tn We thought toddlers had it easy. No bills to pay, no bosses to please--just ice cream and a little mischief on the brain. But America's tiniest citizens, some still in diapers, are now the newest members of the Ritalin and Prozac nation.

Avatar m tn A cerebral palsy diagnosis can be delayed for a number of reasons including milder symptoms or missed signs of developmental delay. Cerebral palsy affects the part of the brain that deals with muscles so, typically, symptoms are related to movement, including speech.

Avatar m tn Our 4 year old grandson has been experiencing dizziness, and other vertigo symptoms. Drs. have found nothing that would contribute to this physiologically. My wife and I wondered if his playing video games for extended periods on his iPad or Tablet could contribute to the problem. We haven't found anything in the literature specifically addressing this problem in preschoolers, but we recalled a problem with seizures in Japan caused by certain video games quite a few years back.
Avatar f tn , six or seven years of age), because until that time most of the behaviours exhibited by children with ADHD are typical of all children in the preschool years. (They may be more severe in preschoolers who have ADHD, but since some kids who are highly active in their preschool years definitely don't have ADHD, it's better to wait.) A lot of what you are describing is typical toddler behaviour - defiance, ignoring "no", climbing all over things, etc.
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 m tn t tell - there were at least two preschoolers left completely alone (sounds like three preschoolers actually) with no supervision? Good thing they're all still alive. I wouldn't label any of them having "mental issues", but would consider calling CPS on parents who "nap" while children are running around playing doctor in the bathtub.
Avatar m tn This generation and last generation of children have unprecedented use of antipsychotics and antidepressants and ADHD medications. Preschoolers are being put on drugs at an alarming rate. Is there any way that you, Grandma, or his actual parents can parent him instead of an employee?
Avatar n tn I am teacher's mother. 61 and ADHD. I benefit from medication but can't afford it now. She is also ADHD. There is a theory that this situation has a connection with L-dopa. My mother had Parkinson's, which is an L-dopa situation. I know others who had Parkinson's parents and ADHD children. More than a coincidence, I think. So, very much a biological situation. And genetic.
Avatar m tn I always had trouble wrting essays,my mind would not work and cause distress,and also when had to read a book.Is it possible that untreated ADHD got me into this mess,and if indeed i do have ADHD and treat it with medication, will it improve my situation(i will be less anxious in certain conditions because my mind would slow down and think more organised,i would be less agitated,less impulsive,i would procrastinate less,improve my depression)?
Avatar n tn does giving cough medicines to preschoolers (specifically 2 and 3 yr old) destroy the immune system and causes damage to the brain?
327385 tn?1378360731 Sounds like your talking about my daughter, and she has ADHD. They started her off on Adderal XR, but she is now on Vyvance (sp). She did and does all the things you have listed, including the stealing and not knowing why. 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.
Avatar n tn Hi there, I have been having problems with rib pain for about a year now. I realized it when the kids (both preschoolers) would bump into me. It doesn't seem to be that chondritis that's localized to just the sternum area-- i think that's called chostochondritis. My whole rib cage, front and back, collarbones, and hips seem to ache when I apply pressure to them.
602796 tn?1219873465 Every child tested for this has some symptoms. The key is in the degree and severity of it. Some children do have ADD/ADHD and need help. As a teacher, I have seen children medicated that did not need it and children NOT medicated that did need it. Teachers are certainly not doctors, but neither are mothers. Teachers are educated professionals capable of dealing with an active, spirited child on a daily basis. No teacher wants to see a lifeless child medicated beyond interaction.
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.
