Common Questions and Answers about Adhd without hyperactivity


Avatar f tn She can perform many tasks without problem and does like doing crafts but also I can walk out of the room and she is painting the table or ruining something. An example would be a brand new full shampoo bottle that she knows should not be dumped in the tub of bath water because she was punished several times for doing so but I leave the bathroom for one minute and the whole bottle is gone and then she says mommy I think the shampoo is empty.

Avatar n tn ADHD is Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, ADD is Attention Deficit Disorder with or without hyperactivity. The former is medically Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR), while the latter is DSM-IIIR. ADHD is also called AHDD or attention hyperactivity deficit disorder. So the basic difference is the presence of hyper-activity along with attention deficit in AHDD. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn Impacted bowels, as well as many other conditions that may or may not be behavioral related, are teachable and trainable, without the use of ADHD labels and the associated legalized drug dealers behind the movement. Just a matter of parenting, similar to dog training.

Avatar f tn Hi, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder, affecting about 3-5% of the world's population under the age of 19.It typically presents itself during childhood, and is characterized by a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity, as well as forgetfulness, poor impulse control or impulsivity, and distractibility.
715470 tn?1229799934 I was recently diagnosed with OCD. My psychiatrist said I might also have ADHD. Anyway, I started taking medication for the OCD, and I choose zoloft. Ever since I started taking it, I've had hyperactivity emotionally, not physically. I speak up in class, and the teachers are obviously annoyed by it. I asked my psychiatrist if it was because of Zoloft, because hyperactivity was one of the side effects, but she said it was psyically, not emotionally.
Avatar f tn Some children have a modest degree of hyperactivity and it does not require treatment. But, if the hyperactivity is moderate-to-severe, you will not achieve success without medication. That is the frank reality. So, in part you are expecting to find some alternative, but there really is none. This is an instance when you should alter your expectations.

Avatar n tn Hi, I wanted to know how appropiate it is to medicate a child with attention deficit disorder (non hyper) with Ritalin. I believe that Ritalin is recommended to ADHD children because it helps to control de hyperactivity but I don't know what benefits does it have with ADD children. Dear Yanira Figueroa: Yes, ritalin is used for both disorders. Ritalin helps a child focus. The lack of being able to focus on a topic or situation is common to both ADD and ADHD.
Avatar f tn Hello, Your child’s symptoms are suggestive of ADHD(attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder and is characterized by a persistent pattern of impulsiveness and inattention, with or without a component of hyperactivity.Symptoms of ADHD are impulsiveness,inattention, aggression, frequent temper tantrums, and hyperactivity.
Avatar n tn Hello, As you may have discovered in your research, hyperactivity is less commonly observed in adults and females of any age with ADHD. Individuals diagnosed as children tend to display less hyperactivity as they age. Typically, hyperactivity diminishes as people age to the extent that symptoms no longer significantly impact day-to-day functioning. Individuals with ADHD also tend to choose jobs where they can move around or where there are frequent changes or exciting challenges.
Avatar f tn Namaste, People with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) have difficulty sustaining attention and concentration. They typically exhibit inappropriate levels of activity, distractibility, and impulsivity. While ADD and ADHD are usually diagnosed in childhood, they can last (often undetected) throughout adolescence into adulthood.
Avatar f tn my son 6 was diagnose by a school psy asperger syndrom as his main problem was not following rules at school and be really unfocus but academically was higher than other kids specially in reading and math but has problem making drawing and writing what is the best treatment for those kids? does being asperger is different than having adhd as my son has issues with sounds at school and try to isolate himself when to much noise etc...
Avatar n tn t believe that he has ADHD or hyperactivity if this is only something he does at school. Maybe there is a favorite thing at home that you can take away if he acts poorly at school. He needs to have you and your husband sit down with him and explain to him how his behavior is disrespectful and unacceptable. Also, if he is exceeding the norm for his grade level, could he be bored in school because he's not being challenged enough?
Avatar n tn hello. i was diagnosed adhd when i was about 9 yrs old. i was really hyperactive, but things have changed. im 19 now and i have al the add symptoms but i do not have hyperactivity, instead i have hypoactivity. is this possible that adhd turned into add. what does this mean?
Avatar n tn I don’t think that anything is linked with any neurological disorder here since it could be a normal phenomenon of an ADHD child who reacts quite differently in such situation due to poor attention span. Your daughter with ADHD may have attention difficulty, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Therefore, by attention deficit she does not listen to what is said to her. In handling and managing your daughter just tries to be specific & clear in your instructions.
Avatar f tn It is important to look for other disorders which may be present; such as, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), learning disabilities, mood disorders (depression, bipolar disorder) and anxiety disorders. It may be difficult to improve the symptoms of ODD without treating the coexisting disorder." In the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley, she states that 33% of the kids with ADHD also have ODD.
Avatar f tn Our pediatrician just told us that he thinks or 17 month old has adhd. He suggests that we keep him bored. I know that sounds strange, but he says it makes their minds work better. He told us little to no television, and when he's older no computer or video games. You need to find something that your little one is into. Maybe crafts,coloring,cooking. Find something that they like to do and add some learning into it. If your child likes to cook/bake,make cookies and you can add math into it.
Avatar f tn However, one of the prime symptoms of adhd is acting without thinking (which the correct dose of medication can really help). And, of course, anxiety can cause all kinds of unusual eating habits. So I think that you need to spend your time researching adhd (I can help with this) and working with your school. Then once you/he have gotten a bit of control over those can start looking at the other things. I hope this helps.

Avatar f tn Is it possible for a 51 yr old to be diagnosed as ADHD ( slight hyperactivity, more ADD )? Supposedly, before my 7th Birthday I had a photogenic memory. Shortly before that birthday I was bitten by a Copperhead, was given the anti-venom in small doses, almost lost my leg and life, and stayed hospitalized for 3 weeks. One week after being discharged, I had a Grand-Mal Seizure that lasted 24 hours before it could be stopped.
Avatar f tn There is no difference. Officially, only ADHD exists. It comes in three varieties: ADHD predominantly hyperactive, ADHD predominantly inattentive, and ADHD mixed type. In other words, you don't need to be hyperactive in order to be diagnosed as ADHD. The term ADD is merely a popular abbreviation frequently (mis)used to indicate that someone is inattentive and does not display symptoms of hyperactivity.
Avatar n tn If the ADHD diagnosis is accurate, and if it includes a significant degree of hyperactivity, treatment of the ADHD may be necessary. As a behavior management tactic, time out will be effective if she executes it correctly. My guess is that the execution, not the technique, is the problem. A useful resource is Lynn Clark's book SOS Help for Parents (see
