Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms toddler

adhd

Avatar n tn This is not to say that, if she is diagnosed with ADHD, it explains all of her behavior, but may be a component of it. I would revisit the ADHD issue, and have her evaluated again, including collecting data via standardized checklists that are widely accepted as helping to establish this descriptive diagnosis. As an aside, it's not unusual for children who display ADHD to also have the ability to be attentive and focused in particular circumstances.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately, biting is a normal phase that many toddlers go through. Most doctors would not diagnose a 2 year old with ADHD, especially since many of the "symptoms" of ADHD are typical 2 year old behaviors. There have been many changes in her life, and that can certainly contribute. Play therapy certainly couldn't hurt, but probably isn't necessary. Instead, family members should be taking time to give her 1 on 1 attention every day.
Avatar n tn That is not the problem. He does not have any of the other symptoms for lactose intolerance. Does anyone have any advice? Thank you.
Avatar m tn It is also good to keep in mind--especially if it runs in the family--that if ADHD shows up at that age, the most common symptoms are the ones you have described. It may be worth an evaluation by her pediatrician.
Avatar n tn Now I have 4 children and he is my third so I thought that this was normal toddler boy activity. He is always moving he doesn't sit still or listen He has no fear of anything my house is constantly on lock down casue if he gets out the front door he runs off he has already gotten lost twice and has had numerous injuries. When attempting to watch TV he stands on his head moves from one couch to the next jumps off the couch etc.
Avatar n tn So we took him for regularly for a few months and had him evaluated and we also to took him to a second doc for a second opnion and they both agreed he had ADHD and OCD. We hestitated on putting him on medication, but over the summer while he was being evaluated his behavior turned dangerous.
Avatar f tn I would suggest that you actually look into sensory integration disorder (my son has this) as it can look exactly like adhd in the toddler years. We've had a tremendous amount of success with our boy who is doing great after being diagnosed between 3 and 4 years old. No medication is used for sensory but rather games that work directly on the nervous system and some behavior management techniques. You do occupational therapy for it.

602796 tn?1219877065 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 n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.

Start a new post on the child behavior forum - http://www.medhelp.org/forums/Child-Behavior/show/64 List what the child is doing and see what we can come up with to help you. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn It would be hard to determine for many kids if something was add/adhd or normal young toddler behavior. As he gets older and matures, age appropriateness becomes more of an issue to discern where he is at in terms of development. Things like add/adhd or sensory will be more apparent in an evaluation. I would revisit this. Again, it could just be his sleep issue but what is causing the sleep issue? it could all be tied together.
Avatar m tn my 8 year old son was diagnosed with Adhd when he was 4 since then things have changed with him or things i thought was because of his Adhd but now realise they arnt he is on a very high dose of medication which do seem to work for the Adhd symptoms but now you notice the strange things he does ie collects paper, stones shells anything like this he puts everything in bags or boxes and carrys them around, he doesn seem to understand danger will run in a road jump of things things you know will/ca

Avatar n tn ) has severe ADHD and against my wants we began medicating him at 4, but he was clearly ADHD since very young, possibly birth? It's just that as he emerged from toddler-hood his toddler like energy & lack of control did not cease. Also keep in mind that Adderall was horrific for us, he hallucinated, had very severe anxiety etc. Just wanted you to know that if you decided to medicate it may take a while to find one that fits.
Avatar f tn It's as if there are some symptoms of add, so again, for a 3 year old toddler is there a possibility of her having add?
Avatar f tn Steven Hyman, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, says he was shocked that either clonidine, an adult blood-pressure drug that appears to be increasingly used to treat ADHD symptoms or insomnia, or the older generation of tricyclic antidepressants were being given at all to preschoolers. Clonidine in combination with stimulants has been associated with heart problems in children.
Avatar f tn I've heard for years (from my ADHD husband, my ADHD daughter, friends, strangers, etc.) that he has ADHD, too. I wasn't ready to commit to that idea. Yes, he's got the symptoms, but he never showed the signs my daughter did as a toddler - there was always something a little "different" about her. I've set a better, more reliable schedule for him, I work very hard to ensure consistency in my home, I make sure he is getting enough exercise, etc.
Avatar f tn I need help. My son is only 3. He will be 4 in July. A month after his third birthday he was actually diagnosed with ADHD. I understand this diagnosis its rarely given before 5 due to"toddler symptoms" being similar. So I hope that gives you some idea of how severe this is. The neurologist that diagnosed him said it was the worst case he had seen in his 20 years.
Avatar f tn at a month or two old. She was either laughing as a toddler or throwing a tantrum, nothing in between. But she was otherwise very healthy and beautiful. She never interacted when playing with other kids she only parallel played. She interacted with people, but she just always seemed "different" from other toddlers. I can't put my finger on anything particular. Anyway, throughout her school years she became a little more social, gaining a few close friendships.
Avatar n tn I have suspected ADHD for a while now, but I am also afraid it may be something else, and I don't want him just labeled ADHD by his doctor and the school if it is not. I am most concerned about his intense emotional responses and subsequent impulsive behavior as this is what is getting him into trouble at school. It has improved in the last year for sure, but he will have a few days where it is BAD, and then weeks where he does fine.
1074733 tn?1256235219 One of my sisters has bipolar disorder and is actually allergic to the cold. She is suffering from symptoms that I believe are endometrisosis, but she has no insurance and will not go to have the laparoscopy done and will not take the medication. The other sister has been on antidepressants for years for severe mood swings and depression and just had her entire thyroid removed at age 35 due to hyperthyroidism and multiple nodules that were increasing rapidly in number and size.
Avatar f tn about everything but he just blows it off as terrible twos but I have 2 other kids who were never this bad or persistent on getting in trouble. my husband has ADHD and is bipolar but is being treated for the bipolar disorder but could my son be showing early signs of both and what should I do seeing my DR doesn't think its anything more then terrible two.
1260255 tn?1288658164 I would say it's doubtful that bone loss is causing neurological symptoms. Bone loss can cause spine problems, leading to nerve pressure, but I don't see that in the picture you've posted.
506438 tn?1210649293 His diagnosis is supposedly severe ADHD & ODD. I don't believe that's what he has because all the ADHD meds didn't work on him. In my opinion, if you have x disorder and take a med made to remedy that particular disorder, and the disorder is not remedied, than maybe you don't have x disorder after all. For example: Once upon a time, I started coughing so I took some cold & cough meds, The coughing continued and got worse, so I tried other cold and flu remedies.
Avatar n tn While it is true that your son displays some symptoms typical of children with ADHD, it's really too early to make a determination about this. Development proceeds rapidly at this age, and children often look quite a bit different at age six, for example, than they do at age five. Remember, development is a process, and occurs along a variety of dimensions: physical, cognitive, social, emotional.
Avatar n tn I don't know what to tell you really, is there a history of bp in your family? It could also be other things, adhd comes to mind. I would say bring him to a psychiatrist ASAP before he hurts himself.
Avatar f tn i have a grandson who has many issues i think stem from his horriable birth his mom was in labor for 64 hrs before they decided to do a c section his head was in birth cannel fo a while he had infection in his head from this and so did the mom from poop from all the hands checking her and not being careful she was in a teaching hospital .
Avatar f tn The nuerologist only did the squeeze my finger, follow my finger with your eyes exam, and sent us back out the door. She has never shown signs of ADD/ADHD - and I do not want these symptoms to sound as if she simply needs ritalin. These behaviors happened in the matter of a month or two since her accident. Am I missing something? What should I do to help my daughter through whatever it is? It is obviously hurting her, but I can't make it better if I don't know where to start!
