Adhd toddlers

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd toddlers


Avatar f tn is there any know link b/t food allergies and adhd in toddlers (2-3 year olds)? specifically linked with diary allergies?
Avatar f tn s and the drugs typically prescribed for add/adhd were coming to market around that time. This is also really when add/adhd became mainstream and well known. Sure, it was around before that time but there was not the awareness that we have now and that started in the early to mid 90's (man I sound old, don't I?). I will tell you that typical protocol is to not diagnose a child and treat with medication until the earliest age of 6. That should be the standard of care every where.
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 n tn Hi there I'm really worried about my little boy having adhd he's nearly 2 years old which I know is young to reconize symptoms of his age but his behavour is worrisome.if he can't do something straight away he gets angry and will hit,head butt anything near him.if i tell him no for anything he responseds in the same way but with me.his anger outbursts are very extreme considering he's from a calm household.
Avatar f tn I would seek a second opinion on his ADHD diagnosis. A 3 year old really shouldn't be diagnosed as such. Nearly all toddlers exhibit all (or nearly all) of the symptoms of ADHD - that is their nature. I can't say I agree with medicating a 3 year old for ADHD either, but that is my personal thought and I am not a medical professional. Some of the symptoms you referred to don't occur with ADHD - which is why I think seeking a second opinion would be helpful to you.
Avatar f tn I am concerned about a student in our school who has been playing with his own feces in the bathroom and smearing it on the walls- he is 7 years old and diagnosed with ADHD (on medication once daily) as well as difficulty with anger management. I am looking for some direction in areas to research, things to recommend to the parents, and verification whether this is a concern of a child this age. And feedback is much appreciated. Thanks much.
Avatar n tn they do that. Toddlers do not sit still! They ALL appear hyper...well, maybe not all...some are like zombies. I have ADD...had it all my life. When I was a child my mom knew that I was "special". I was a very quick learner, smart as a whip, and knew how to read by the time I was 4. It wasn't until grade 1 that I started to "act" strangely. I couldn't focus...and that is what ADD/ADHD is all about...concentration.
Avatar n tn Toddlers. Chat su ling.
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 f tn He regresses to things that toddlers do like biting, tearing things up and destroying things even when he knows it is wrong. I know they were looking at him for possible ADHD/Bipolar disorder. Does it sound like that might be the problem. My boyfriend has 5 kids and 4 of them are bipolar/adhd with another anger disorder and my son acts just like them when they are off their meds.

1035252 tn?1427227833 Yep the title says it all. my daughter is driving me insane. she refuses to keep clothes on and I KNOW that we live in FL so our winters are mild right now (although we had several weeks of consistently below-freezing weather last winter) but the only way we can keep her clothed and warm at night is to either put her in the ONE long-sleeved onesie we have that fits her, or put a long-sleeved shirt on and put a normal onesie OVER that to keep her from removing it.
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.
Avatar f tn Jag har med stor chans ADHD. Ingen diagnos satt, men psykologen sa det. Var på NPF.mottagningen och fick resultaten på testerna. Gick bra och gick därifrån glad. Manga har tjurat idag och sårade mig lite, men annars okej. Spydde på kvällen.

5856747 tn?1403348682 Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. ADHD. Prevalence. Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder or ADHD is today largely accepted as a bona fide psychiatric or neurobehavioral disorder affecting some 5-7% of children and adolescents. The prevalence will depend on the diagnostic criteria used. It was once thought to be three times commoner in boys than in girls though not all studies support that figure. About 50% of ADHD children will carry the condition into adulthood.

Avatar n tn Omegle why? Why do I do this? Suicidal toddlers?
Avatar n tn He had been in another day care setting(since infant) that was very open and less structured. He was also held back with younger toddlers because he had a slight speech delay & I think too active for the next class. Now in his new pre-school he is expected to stay in his "classroom", sit for story time, sit for craft time ect.. He is having a very difficult time.
Avatar n tn Well, my son did all those things at two. He was a late talker, would go off and play by himself at Gymboree (when the other kids were following the class leader and listening to the story), and he wouldn't come when you called him or do what you ask much of the time. I had him evaluated at 3 and was told he was likely very bright and bored and needed to be challenged more. At 4, his Montessori school teacher suggested ADHD.
Avatar n tn hes hyper and not in the adhd way either but hes acting up and is a little mean to his siblings but hes seeking counseling...i am worried she will turn into one of those toddlers that scream at everything and is scared of everything cuz shes already crying at any lil thing...
Avatar n tn -) Oscar was a really good boy at toddlers :-) Feel moody and irritated this afternoon.
Avatar m tn 5 yr old...! get the picture? try to hard on using words like "DISCIPLINE" and "misbehaving" your gonna find yourself in trouble in a decade or so... take it easy, have some fun together, i'm guessing the kids hyperactive, so try to understand that life might get a bit difficult do to that,for the KID! so think a bit about him\her as-well. almost every society has a defect in knowing how to interact with hyperactive kids, so plz, don't make it worse for him\her.
Avatar f tn Very little sleep due to toddlers and barking dogs the night before.
Avatar n tn My concern is that he shows no interest in sitting down and concentrating on the types of activities I keep reading that other toddlers enjoy, and I wonder whether he is already showing signs of some kind of ADHD or attention-related problems. He will not do puzzles, play with blocks, spend much time with shape sorters, or draw or paint, or anything similar. He does like to look at books, and play with cars / planes / trains, but usually not for very long.
