Avatar f tn I agree with Jenkaye 100% with her suggestions for cutting back on video games. I wonder however if gators32 was wondering how someone with ADHD could concentrate on a video game. And the answer is that the stimulation is great enough that they will get locked into the game and actually can have a hard time quitting. So, yes, a child with ADHD can concentrate enough to play video games.

Avatar n tn Excuse me but the whole concept of this seems pattently ridiculous. My youngest has ADHD with a big H and he carries Lyme's but he had the ADHD WAY before he contracted the other. I will certainly check out the video but I start out as a disbeliever.
Avatar n tn My 12 year old son in 6th grade has been getting in touble for the last month because he continues to forget homework, doesn't turn it in, doesn't remember to bring books home and is talking in class. We have met with his teachers and have been told that he loses focus in class as well. We have had this trouble with him over the last several years but though he was doing better.
Avatar f tn Well, obviously part of this depends on how long this has been going on. It might be a good idea to get more information on ADHD to see if any of the symptoms sound familiar. I've got tons of resources. While many are very detailed (your parents might be interested in those), this is pretty direct - check it out - http://www.medhelp.org/posts/ADD---ADHD/What-signs-should-I-look-for/show/773154 If there is anymore questions you have, please feel free to post. Best wishes!
11487567 tn?1418754128 Second, there is a strong possibility that her anxieties are being caused by or strengthened by her ADHD which I assume she has? If so, treating only the anxiety part could make her symptoms actually worse. And, essentially, the treatments are just masking the symptoms and not treating the cause. This is a very good link on ADHD and anxiety. http://www.add.org/page/ADHDandAnxiety In terms of combining stim meds and anxiety meds, this link to a short video by Dr.
Avatar n tn HI, my son Chris is 18 with Adhd,P.D.D. Nos is makes noicesall the time & comes up and touches me all the time he also claps his hands. He usually does this alot when he is playing those video games.Is is Adhd meds working? I dont think so. He takes 10mg in morning & 10mg at night!
5690865 tn?1372451618 Hyper focus means you can focus for one thing for a very long time, in spite of the ADD/ADHD. My son can do this with video games. However, getting him to focus on homework or even eating his dinner is a struggle. I hope this helps. Good luck!
Avatar f tn Our 9 year old has a lot of ADD/ADHD characteristics, but has not been formally diagnosed, nor treated with medication. My issue is that he has always been a non sleeper. Even as a baby, he slept less than what would be considered normal. He will not sleep with the light off because he claims he's scared of the dark and he often gets up in the middle of the nite to play video games, computer or even just to read books.
Avatar m tn He has been on resperidone for 11/2 week showing only ADHD and ODD symptoms. He is driving us crazy but not showing any signs of anger or aggression. We then introduced ADHD medication, guanfacine, evening only. Second day he started exhibiting more aggressive, angry behavior. I plan to call the Doctor on Monday, but wanted to know if anyone else had similar situation?

Please ask if you need more info.
Avatar n tn But, you do need to know if he does have ADHD - although his symptoms would certainly suggest it. And having two siblings with it would certainly enhance the odds of him having it. Perhaps what ever doctor is helping you with them could also give guidance. Anyway, here is a good general overall look at adhd. http://www.medicinenet.com/parenting_a_child_with_adhd/article.htm You might want to get the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley.

709940 tn?1231900307 My son went through a phase of testing with a clinical child psychologist. She said that her "instincts" say that he does not have a PDD, but possibly ADHD, even though he displays all signs of having a PDD. She said that because he did not display these behaviors in her office, she can't say. What she did say was that he has Language Processing Disorder, Sensory Integration Dysfuncion and Speech delays.
Avatar f tn Actually what he is doing is not that unusual for an adhd kid. Kids with adhd can hyperfocus (especially if playing video games). Once they are in this stated...things like going to the bathroom just don't register till its too late. And, of course, being impulsive is highly typical of adhd kids. They don't think before doing stuff...as many emergency room doctors can tell you. What can you do about this? Medication will help the impulsiveness.
Avatar m tn ve had trouble for a long time continuing anything or finishing anything whether it be keeping a job, enjoying my favorite hobbies, video games, etc. Anything repetitive becomes something I CANNOT do even though I REALLY want to do it. Finally, i saw my doctor about adult ADHD since I had ADHD as a child, but stopped my medication in high school. My doctor had me take the Tulva test to re-diagnose me with ADHD as an adult so he could prescribe medication.
Avatar m tn Sounds like it could just be a run of the mill teenager on drugs. All of his symptoms could stem from his drug use. Take him to the doctor if he is on ADHD meds...good luck.
Avatar f tn I was thinking he was maybe ADHD/ADD but he can sit still and play a video game for a long time, but has all the other symptoms, but I figured if he can sit still and focus on his game then that couldn't be it. I have taking the games away by the way because of how he has been lately. This whole bathroom thing is just yet another thing he he doing.
Avatar f tn I have heard of ADHD symptoms, I heard that it is much more easier to have fights if you have ADHD also ADHD kids act mostly, hyper, either violent(Not all), Overreacting over mainly little things. Sometimes they wonder in there own world. Having Aspergers can be different in many ways, Aspergers is when your child is having emotional problems maybe even getting embarrassed, shy, difficult education maybe even speech problems.
444265 tn?1292467473 My name is Arianna, Can someone help me? Please!? I honestly think I have ADD or ADHD of some sort.. I can' tfocus in class, or anything uninteresting.. I do hand around a lot but im also always bouncing my leg or playing with something. I can't stay focused on one thing.. unless its like.. a video game or something.. then I won't stop till I get it right.
Avatar f tn If I am speaking to him about video games or cartoons, he hears me clearly but everything else, I have to ask him 5 or more times in some cases. Our daily morning routine is always a struggle. I have to remind him to do everything from brush his teeth to clean up after his breakfast dishes. My husband and I have restricted his video gaming and television to weekends only and after chores.
Avatar m tn My 6 year old was recently diagnosed with ADHD combined type and complex motor tics. I am reaching out to all of you because I feel like he could be misdiagnosed. He's having a difficult time in school with making noises, facial grimicing and his new obessions- arm pit farting and noises that sound like a gulp and another one that makes a sound like bowwww. He's been having a lot of trouble with these issues. As a baby he had benign mycolnic seizures quite frequently.
Avatar f tn Hi, I just want to say that you are on medications for bipolar disorder, but I think you already know that. At any rate, I found that since I think the forgetfulness can be from the disorder, the meds, you're very busy life and getting older. I used to have an incrdible memory where I can remember events, time of day, the kind of clothes people and myself were wearing, etc., etc.
Avatar f tn Hello, the key to determining if a young child has ADHD is to determine to what degree his symptoms are occurring across settings, and how much his behavior differs from that of other boys his age. Much of what you describe is common unwanted behavior in a boy his age, though it is clear that he needs to learn new skills to follow rules and keep himself safe.
Avatar m tn ) was seeing was a pretty typical kid with ADHD. Depression and anxiety are very common for kids with ADHD. Especially if they have not had any information on how ADHD affects them. You said you were emotionally abused until 6th grade - was that about the time you started taking Adderall? It is very normal to not talk as much when on Adderall because you now have more impulse control.
Avatar f tn I just found out my 10 year old son made a video about shooting up a school he goes into detail showing what to use as he puts the items into his backpack" nerf guns toys not the real thing". someone saw the video and reported it to the police and and the police went to the school and found nothing in his backpack so when asked why he made the video he said because his friend made one first.
