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 t get enough advice to help on this site, I would recommend any of the books by Dr Christopher Green. He wrote toddler taming, beyond toddler taming, understanding adhd and heaps of others. In Australia he is considered a guru, and I think his books are available in US and Uk, or can be bought on line. There are heaps of other good books in most librarys, but I still think his are the best.
973741 tn?1342342773 Full disclosure that one of my kids was diagnosed with a developmental delay as a toddler called sensory integration disorder. He did occupational therapy for years and is now a teenager. He works on the sensory stuff and we've learned a lot over the years. But so many kids seem to be diagnosed for different things so routinely these days. My other son is not a kid who loves reading. He's now a young teenager and he has to read a good deal for his curriculum in school.
1612084 tn?1298323952 The behaviors described by the school staff are more typical of ADHD than they are of Mood Disorder. The whole matter may be a moot point, however, because of her age. While it is not out of the question, one should be cautious about using medication to treat ADHD in such a young child. Only in extreme circumstances would this be considered. In any case, in no small part because of the family history, having her evaluated in Pediatric Behavioral Health would be wise.

Avatar f tn Hi. Sorry you haven't been getting responses to your questions. It is quite true that your boy is little and in our state, protocol is to not diagnose for add/adhd until a child is at least 6 due to variability in children. But we mothers know when something is amiss with our kids. My first suggestion is to talk to your pediatrician. I'd think about developmental milestones and where your child was with them.
Avatar n tn My son is 7 and was diagnosed over a year ago with ADHD combined type. What I have recently noticed is he will constantly repeat a two or three word phrase over and over and over until we have to tell him to stop. He also will be sitting there watching TV or eating and he will just yell. Like AHHHHH! Then stop and thats it. He won't say anything, he's not upset or afraid or anything... its almost like when a kettle needs to give off steam.
Avatar n tn My nephew was diagnosed with ADD at 4 yrs old my son has ADHD and he was diangosed 5 yrs old. Do you think your child has ADHD? If you need info I know alot about ADHD. If you have any quiestions.
Avatar f tn So my daughter has had trouble with vomiting 3-5 nights a week since she was a toddler (she is almost 11). She has been diagnosed with Asthma and a few environmental allergies. Her allergist stated that the vomiting is due to the asthma. However, I am starting to suspect the opposite may be true. I know vomiting is not good for her esophagus. She does not experience pain before vomiting.
793266 tn?1275479663 Today I started adding fish oil and a B-complex vitamin for the adhd symptoms, and vitamin D for thyroid/mood. I am taking fish oil at dinner, B at all meals, and D at one meal. I am hoping these will increase energy, memory, and decrease AdHd symptoms and mood swings.

Avatar n tn It is certainly possible that he displays ADHD - the symptoms you describe are typical of young children who do exhibit this condition. It would make sense to arrange an evaluation and see what comes of it. If you continue with the reward system, have him earn a reward each day. He is too young for a system that requires him to earn points for days at a time before he earns a reward.
521840 tn?1348840771 These same childhood symptoms take on different forms in adults with ADHD. For example, most adults with ADHD are not floridly hyperactive. Instead, an adult is more likely to report ‘inner restlessness’ or problems with impulsivity. Symptoms of ADHD impact important adult tasks such as remembering to pay the mortgage, paying attention while driving, or managing your children’s schedules.
Avatar n tn s an automatic, habit response by now, very likely a tension-reduction knee-jerk response. If your son does display ADHD, the behavior you are noticing would not be associated with the ADHD. Might it be a tic - i.e., an involuntary muscle response? It is possible. Here are two bits of guidance. First, request an evaluation by a pediatric neurologist. Second, re: the ADHD, if he is excelling in school you needn't do anything.

Avatar m tn My youngest son is in enrolled in a toddler playgroup, which he attends 2 days/week. I was told by his teacher that they are concerned because he has been wandering the classroom without a a purpose and he has a very difficult time staying on task. There was a question of ADD/ADHD. I'm not sure if I would agree w/ that, but I will say at home that he rarely stays w/ one thing at home and at times impulsive. So needless to say I am little concerned that there be a behavioral issue.
2025863 tn?1328907557 I am tired of fighting her 2 times a day to go to sleep what can I do? She is a very active toddler and I have asked the dr about add or adhd and he said no its probably a phase but its getting worse I need help.
697199 tn?1227996612 with all the info including a full blood panel done he seems to think that my 11 yr olds headaches,recent diagnosis of add/adhd,developmental delays,increased memory loss,depression and odd behavior are not at alla result of the cyst.mind you all these symtoms were givin BEFORE i knew anything of a cyst or what even ever heard of such a son also has a higher sensitivity to heat, gets sick if he gets to hot and all of these symtoms have been addressed since early toddler age.
Avatar f tn Well me and my family have always suspected my son of having adhd even though hes only 4 for awhile I told my family they where crazy that he wasnt adhd he was just being a typical child/toddler at the time until I had a women come and ask me if he had it cause my son acts alot like hers did at his age ao I took my son in to the doctor and theydid some test and want to wait twtell his 5th bday to do further test but my doctor said it seems as if he does in fact have it.
5856747 tn?1403348682 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 My hubby and I adopted 2 grandsons. One was an infant, the other was a toddler. Bio parents were on drugs, and the children were neglected and prenatally exposed to drugs and alcohol. They are now 8 and 10 years old. The youngest was perfectly normal until age 6, when he developed a horrible, violent temper. After a 3-week stay in a children's psychiatric hospital, he was diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder. He is now on medication and doing much better.
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 f tn I noticed when my child was a toddler, he did not have the same reaction to anesthesia as the other children reciving tubes placed in their ears. There were probably 5 other parents in the waiting room and my son was given a shot (I don't remember what it was). It was suppose to make him sleepy in about 15 minutes before the surgery. Instead of getting drowsy, he became an enraged monster. I think after 15 minutes, they gave him something else or more of the same.
Avatar m tn Children who are or have been on ADHD drugs have an increased risk of committing suicide.Even the American Psychiatric Association admits that suicide is the major adverse reaction of withdrawal from these drugs. Clarke reports that “symptoms usually peak within two to four days after withdrawal of the drugs although depression and irritability may persist for months. Suicide risk can persist for years.
11513017 tn?1425723993 Anyone else have an overly active baby? My little one seems to be practicing karate in my belly! I love it but I'm afraid he/she will come out running! Lol. I'm a second time mom but I don't remember my daughter being so active and even as a toddler she was amazingly calm and well behaved. Could this be a sign for anything?
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 f tn 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?
