Avatar n tn You sound like a very caring teacher and the short answer is yes. Because you are a teacher and not a doctor I'm sure you know you can only report symptoms. Tell the mom it doesn't look like the ADD you have seen in other kids but it looks like he just zones out. DO NOT bring up the surgery. Moms, in general, feel guilty enough already "blaming" her will not change anything.

Avatar n tn Your child is one of the many children who suffer from Tourette's syndrome with co-existing conditions such as attention deficit disorder and seizures. There have been debates for ages about what could possibly be a common cause. No one has ever been able to give a satisfactory explanation. A recent researcher (Grimaldi) has hypothesized that Magnesium deficiency ma play a central role in all the three diseases.
Avatar m tn I have a brother that has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. He was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder as a young child. Due to his impulsive behavior he made many bad choices, and he was disruptive. He seemed rebellious or vindictive when he could not have things done his way. Is there a correlation between borderline personality disorder, and ADHD or ODD. I recently completed a paper regarding the relationship between the two conditions.

Avatar n tn Adderall is not prescribed for poor study habits, but for Attention Deficit Disorder, which may interfere with study habits. A review of the diagnosis will help your physician guide you to the best intervention, whether it is an increased dose of Adderall, or a trial of Ritalin, or another intervention. You may want to re-consult your physician and inform him/her your concerns.
Avatar f tn Children mature at different rates. This sounds like a description of my child. He is in 1st grade now, we held him back from the second grade this year, and just from Aug-Dec of this school year he has made a lot of improvements. Just keep an eye on him, meet with his teacher and ask how he is doing with his milestones as far as eduction. As long as he is on track with his class, then he should be fine.

Although A.D.H.D is the diagnosis Dr. Anderson makes, he calls the disorder “made up” and “an excuse” to prescribe the pills to treat what he considers the children’s true ill — poor academic performance in inadequate schools. “I don’t have a whole lot of choice,” said Dr.

Avatar m tn An Australian study suggests daily dose of fish oil helps calm children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Children in the study were given a commercially available dietary supplement containing a combination of fish oil and evening primrose oil, in a ratio of four to one. They were given just under a gram of fish oil a day. The results showed that children on the active fish oil capsules, rich in omega-3 fatty acids, had improvements in attention, behaviour and vocabulary.

Avatar f tn Ritalin is used to treat attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and narcolepsy (an uncontrollable desire to sleep). When given for attention deficit disorder, Ritalin should be an integral part of a total treatment program that includes psychological, educational, and social measures. Ritalin may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
Avatar n tn 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. In addition, if this persists please consult a child psychologist in order to understand appropriate treatment line. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn At present, there is no definite etiology identified for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, although it is highly believed that genetics plays a significant role in this. It might be unlikely that the cyst would cause the ADHD. Hope this answers your query.
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.
163305 tn?1333672171 Even the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidelines, to which your report refers, do not question that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a “real” brain disorder, rather than a convenient way of labelling a child who is boisterous and disruptive in class. Ask paediatricians how often they saw children with “minimal brain dysfunction”, as ADHD was then known, in the 80s, and their answers range from one in 100 to one in 500.
