Avatar f tn This delay can be seen along with other things often such as autism or attention deficit disorder but it can be all by itself as well as with my son. My son also would spin. He'd **** his head to the side when he did it and we actually found it "cute" and called it dancing until we started to feel it was a major impulse for him. It was. He is a sensory seeker and that was something he would do. I found he did it when he wanted to calm himself.
Avatar f tn Hello, Is there anyone, I mean anyone, out there that has rhythmic movement disorder? I have been violently thrashing my body and head, laterally while asleep or mostly somewhat asleep since I can remember. I am 30 now. It use to consume maybe an hour or two a night but now it is getting drastically worse. I find myself doing it or am told that I, "rock", 4-5 hours a night.
Avatar n tn If a child has certain conditions, such as Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, working memory is often impaired. When you give him directions, be sure he is next to you and that you establish eye contact. Then, have him repeat the directions before he proceeds to execute them.
521840 tn?1348844371 A Common Source of Treatable Problems Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder has generally been considered largely a disability of childhood, one that many people expect to leave behind as they grow to adulthood. Most of us think of ADHD as primarily a child’s problem that interferes with progress at school. We often picture hyperactive little boys with behavior problems.
Avatar n tn My son has attention deficit disorder so due to this, he gets bored very quickly of everything! My son is very active. He is always on the move. It is hard to keep him interested for any length of time. How old is your son? What types of activities do you think that he is interested in? Have you asked him specifically what he is interested in? What is his behavior like? What types of things will he do?

Avatar f tn Below information may be helpful to u. Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD, is one of the most common mental disorders that develop in children. Children with ADHD have impaired functioning in multiple settings, including home, school, and in relationships with peers. If untreated, the disorder can have long-term adverse effects into adolescence and adulthood. Asperger's Disorder is a milder variant of Autistic Disorder.

Avatar f tn Your daughter is three years of age? ADD is Attention Deficit Disorder. ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder. Even though they are both attention disorders, they are quite different. Your daughter is three years old; she is going to be hyper, she is going to have more energy than your whole family combined, just as well as every other three year old out there. I have a three year old of my own which inhibits every behavior you mentioned.
172826 tn?1423426556 Parents might raise their children the best way possible, although other factors such as disorders like Attention Deficit Disorder, Anxiety and many more, can affect whether a child or youth who engages in violent or innappropriate acts. When seeking to explain the many reasons to why children kill, disorder such as depression, anxiety, attention deficit combinated with proactive drugs often influences a child or youth to engage in violent crimes.
Avatar f tn Although it seems like your child exhibits characteristic symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, he might not have a genuine attentional problem but rather acts in this manner because academic tasks are very challenging for him. Observe whether he shows similar traits when engaged in other activities that are mildly challenging for him. If these symptoms are present across activities and settings you need to get a professional evaluation of his attention/ concentration skills.
Avatar f tn //www.medhelp.org/medical-information/show/2157/Attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-ADHD?page=1#sec_3761 The problem is that this link focus a lot on ADHD. To get a good picture of the whole area, I would suggest buying this book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley. You can go through a school for testing or find a child specialist. I would probably go the pediatric psychiatrist route.

Avatar n tn He does tend to daydream a lot, and I wonder if he might have Attention Deficit Disorder, even though he has never had any of these problems before or other symptoms. The only thing that seems to help is giving him a small amount (very small, like two drink of a diet soda) of caffeine before school, and then again at recess. The only time he has gotten his work done is the days I have given it to him. What should I do.

Avatar m tn I will assume that your friend is really your friend, and not YOU, but either way the advice is the same. Supposing the family life was just fine -and your friend behaved as he does in school, then I would guess that there might be a learning disorder or related condition at work; your friend might be slightly dyslexic, or have a kind of "autism" at work, or attention deficit disorder or something similar.
Avatar f tn Racing thoughts are often a result of too much anxiety, not liking a particular phase of life, not enjoying what you are doing etc. It can also be due to an attention deficit disorder or due to a more serious psychiatric disorder. Since you are a very private person, the best way to go about it would be through a counselor. Try the school counselor first and then maybe you will need to consult a therapist too. These sessions are confidential and are pretty therapeutic.
Avatar f tn sailorqun, you have been definitely affected from something so traumatic, the loss of a loved one. Should you want to to talk about it, please consider message me. I might be able to make a small difference in your life, because of what I have been through in my own life and my strong interest and training in Energy Medicine & Therapy. On another note, there's one of the most wonderful doctors I have ever come across in my entire life. He's in BC and his name is Gabor Mate.
Avatar f tn children has ADHD, a sizable increase from a few years earlier that researchers think might be explained by growing awareness and better screening. ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, makes it hard for kids to pay attention and control impulsive behavior. It's often treated with drugs, behavioral therapy, or both. The new study found that about two-thirds of the children who have ADHD are on medication.
Avatar n tn I would definately look into the "autism" group. Things like that are hard to diagnose, because not all of the symtoms are displayed. My nephew was 6 years old before he was finally diagnosed as "high functioning autistic". At first they thought it was Attention Deficit, then Aspherger's, etc. Autistic children are usually not affectionate. This is the total opposite with my nephew. He is extremely affectionate with those he knows. He is also a very good reader.
2212714 tn?1342262344 The Twelve Steps--A Guide for Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder There is so much on the Internet that I don't know where to start. I would say, you start your own research and then post more questions here. I will get emails when you do, will answer and hopefully others will also join this discussion. For treatment, he should start with checking into what counseling services are available at his college. I was helped a great deal by therapists and therapy groups at my college.
Avatar m tn Sandman-------- you are king! You give such valuable information. But I will say that almost all of those are symptoms of sensory integration as well. That is what is tricky---- knowing the difference.
Avatar f tn Click on the link - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - at the top of the page and you can get a quick general overview. And if you do go to see a doctor, it certainly wouldn't hurt to run general tests (well, the blood workup will hurt), to rule out other factors. A specialist, like a pediatric psychiatrist, is typically the best way to go. And, yes, all of those things you mentioned are signs of ADHD.
Avatar m tn Did your doctor diagnose him with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity disorder??? If the meds aren't working your doctor may prescribe ritalin? These are the symptoms notice the inappropriate comments line!!!
Avatar m tn NEW YORK (Reuters Health) Oct 24 - Children who wet themselves are more than four times as likely as other kids to also have attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)". I mention that because it would also explain some of his other problems and why your punishments don't seem to be working. Its makes specialmoms question about how he is doing in school very important! So that is something you definitely want to discuss with his teacher.
Avatar f tn //www.medhelp.org/medical-information/show/2157/Attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-ADHD?page=1#sec_3761 Focus on the Inattention symptoms. On the ADD/ADHD forum where I post a lot, I have seen numerous parents saying similar things. By the way, it is not unusual for an intelligent girl to go unnoticed in school (well, at least till about middle school), while all the hyper little boys are noticed.
Avatar f tn //www.helpguide.org/articles/add-adhd/attention-deficit-disorder-adhd-parenting-tips.htm Well, these should keep you busy for awhile. Do let me know how he was tested for ADHD.
Avatar n tn When a child is on such a medication as this, it refocuses their thoughts. My older daughter has attention deficit without hyperactivity. She was unable to concentrate on one thing at a time. I could have sworn she had Asperger several years ago. Then we had her checked and she was put on Adderal which is similar to Ridilen. It has made a HUGE difference in her life. She is now 17 years old, a solid B student, plays in the school band and has friends.
Avatar m tn The disorganization is said to be due to a deficit in self-regulation. There is heaps to comment on this. Mind control as in love or as in her projecting all her stuff? ??
