Avatar n tn It would help to ascertain if his neurological status is normal. I suspect that the evaluation will indicate learning disability and/or deficit in intelligence, as well as deficit in attention.
Avatar n tn (a) Inattentive-type Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and/or (b) deficit in short-term or working memory. Sometimes it can be difficult to discern one from the other, but it would help your daughter if you sought evaluation. Neuropsychological testing can determine the presence of memory problems and can also help (but is not necessary) determine the presence of ADHD.

8506154 tn?1398433086 I'm so sorry to hear about your difficulties. It's really hard to say whether you might have a "sick brain," as you put it. It seems possible that you could have attention deficit disorder or learning disabilities. Ideally, those kinds of issues should always be recognized and addressed in childhood, but sometimes a child with attention deficit disorder or learning disabilities will slip through the educational system without ever being diagnosed.
Avatar m tn t been paying attention, a new government study claims that kids taking pharmaceuticals to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) score higher on math and reading tests at the elementary school level. The study is thought to validate all of the claims that drugs like Ritalin and Adderall are reigning in and focusing the minds of the younger generation. I'm sorry, but I'm still not buying it. I've long been critical of the very concept of ADHD.
Avatar n tn Is there any family history of Tourette Syndrome, tic disorder or any other neurological condition? Is there any family history of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (though your son's symptoms do not suggest this)? Sudden onset behavior such as he is displaying warrants medical evaluation.
Avatar n tn Your son will need to undergo an evaluation to see if, indeed, he does display Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (the condition for which Adderall - and other psychostimulant medications - is prescribed). Adderall can be very useful in enhancing attention in students who display ADHD. And, when used properly and under expert medical guidance, it is safe. However, it can also be abused, and it can propel a student toward a substance-induced manic episode if it is not used properly.
Avatar n tn An evaluation for attentional disorder can be accomplished by arranging an evaluation either with a pediatric mental health/behavioral health clinician or with a pediatric neurologist.
Avatar f tn This may well indicate Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (the correct name for the condition). Arrange an evaluation with a pediatric menatl health clinician (such as a child psychiatrist or clinical psychologist).
Avatar f tn The symptoms you describe are consistent with an Inattentive-type Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The evaluation can be conducted by either a pediatric neurologist or a child psychiatrist.

Avatar f tn First, arrange an evaluation for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder - his symptoms, in your brief description, point in that direction. Second, your behavior management skills need improvement. Read Lynn Clark's book SOS Help for Parents and follow the methods he delineates (see www.sosprograms.com).

Avatar n tn But if the teacher is noting that your son is beyond the normal spectrum in this regard he may well have a neurologically-based attention disorder (such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) that requires treatment.
Avatar f tn One, but only one, is a manifestation of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. The fact that her struggle has occurred over a number of years lends some support to the probability that the attention problem is indeed due to ADHD. If it is, it can be treated.
Avatar m tn However, it is often present with varying degree of mental retardation and or autism spectrum disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Hence, a complete evaluation of this is necessary. While noise making could be an attention seeking activity, it may also be a part of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Please discuss with your son’s doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn This can occur with mood disorders ( depression, bipolar disorder), ADD (attention deficit disorder) , drug abuse and several others. Personality disorders play a significant role in interpersonal relationships. It would be helpful to consider evaluation by a trained Mental Health Professional to rule out any psychiatric conditions. I wish you Good Luck. Sincerely HFHS-M.D.
Avatar n tn We took him to a child psychiatrist recommended by his pediatrician and it turned out that he had ADD. Not ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder), just ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) He was put on medication, once daily and his life changed completely. He could concentrate, focus, his grades went up, his mood changed AND the homework was being turned in - daily! Even the teacher called us on the phone and asked what in the world was going on. haha.
Avatar n tn These symptoms could be signs of mile autism, but they can also indicate Attention Deficit Disorder(ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). If you continue to see these symptoms regularly I would consult your pediatrician. :) God Bless You.
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 f tn - Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. This is how it manifests: I decide to water my garden. As I turn on the hose in the driveway, I look over at my car and decide it needs washing. As I start toward the garage, I notice mail on the porch table that I brought up from the mail box earlier. I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. I lay my car keys on the table, Put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table, And notice that the can is full.
Avatar n tn Attention Deficit Disorder, actually, is quite rare. However, Attention Defict Disorder in Adults and in parents who don't want to take the time necessary to raise and discipline children is quite common. Before you put a child on drugs that may affect him/her for the rest of his/her life, take a look at what YOU, as the rearing parent or guardian are doing that should and MUST be corrected to help raise a child. Clinical diagnoses take time. Raising a child takes time and effort.
Avatar f tn I agree, I would have your pediatrician assess him for ADHD, but I would also consider Sensory Disintegration Disorder. This behavior is not so different from a child who has suffered a trauma or loss (been hurt, loss in the family, parents separated).
Avatar f tn If he truly displays Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and the condition is interfering with his successful management of his school responsibilities, medication such as Ritalin (or another psychostimulant medication) might well assist him. The key is for him to undergo a thorough evaluation and not rush into a plan for pharmacological treatment.
