Avatar m tn // I am more concerned about him being moody and throwing tantrums. That could really hinder him in kindergarten. You need to figure out what his triggers are. Then you need to show him ways to deal with this. One very good way is a set of books aimed at this age group. They are meant to be read aloud many times and practiced. A good one is "When I feel angry".
Avatar m tn (a) Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), (b) Oppositional Defiant Disorder, or conduct disorder, but it is difficult to disentangle those features from those of BPD. I certainly exhibited episodes of hyperactivity-impulsivity or just impulsivity, but I cannot find any detailed information about these early years since everyone who knew me then is now dead or not contactable. 2.7.1.

Avatar n tn There are a number of things to be sorted out in your case such as finding out what specific type or types of memory are abnormal, history of head trauma or meningitis, labor and delivery/perinatal/childhood history, any concomitant behavioral or psychiatric disorder such as attention deficit disorder or mood disorder, and any history of seizures.

Avatar n tn But some types of seizures (often referred to as absence seizures or petit mal seizures) have this quality of 'zoning out' without apparent awareness of what has occurred. It is also possible that she displays Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, but I'd investigate the possible seizure disorder first. You can do this by arranging an evaluation by a pediatric neurologist.
Avatar n tn Adderall is not prescribed for poor study habits, but for Attention Deficit Disorder, which may interfere with study habits.

You may want to re-consult your physician and inform him/her your concerns.
Avatar n tn Dear Lori, It sounds like your son displays a number of neurobehavioral difficulties and probably should be evaluated for sensorimotor and sensory integration problems, if for no other reason than to rule them out. If he displays Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (often referred to as ADD), sensory integration problems would not be an impediment to taking the types of medications commonly prescribed to treat ADHD. And, by the symptoms you listed, he may well display ADHD.
Avatar n tn Dear Vicki, While Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder has been ruled out, it remains to be determined what is to account for your son's behavior. At the very least, you and the school need systematic methods of responding to the behavior. The wise course is to obtain a pediatric mental health or behavioral health evaluation. This will pinpoint the diagnosis and delineate a plan for treatment.

650901 tn?1224018325 That is a form of Attention Deficit Disorder that is commonly a problem with hyperactive children. There are some ADD books that say that many adults have a form of it. I have great difficulty staying focused on one task at a time. We think differently than other people who are "linear". ADD people are highly creative and actually many are even genius level like Albert Einstein. The key is to work from a To Do List but only put one item on the list at a time.

Avatar n tn Conditions in this category include Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Conduct Disorder, in addition to Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Whereas ADHD often involves medication, the other conditions do not as often require it (but it can be useful at times). Medications to treat O.D.D. and C.D. are not the same medications that are used to treat ADHD.

Let him know, of course, about this feeling - feelings can be VERY important warnings that something is not right physiologically. Have you had a good, over-all medical workup, including screenings for allergy/autoimmune issues? Sometimes our psychiatrists don't catch these things. Have you been evaluated for possible ADD?
