1472248 tn?1292614695 From the symptoms described this looks to be attention deficit hyperactivity disorder rather than anything related to the previous episode of rolandic seizure. ADHD usually presents in early school years. The child can be either primarily inattentive, impulsive, hyperactive or emotionally unstable. The child often doesn’t seem to listen, is easily distracted, cant sit still and is fidgety, has angry outbursts, social loner, becomes very sensitive to criticism.
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.

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 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.
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.
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 n tn I don’t think that her stubborn nature is linked with any neurological disorder here since it could be a normal phenomenon of an ADHD (attention deficit hyperactive disorder) 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.
Avatar n tn Over the past several years he was questioned as to having an auditory perception disorder and was found to have a significant one. Later on attention deficit was questioned and was started on ritalin then cylert, both with very devastating side effects that included violent behavior. Then we tried behavior modfication which helped a great deal with his focusing at school and at home. Then he excelled in the 5th and 6th grade including making high honors.
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 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 n tn Other possibility is of ADHD(attention deficit hyperactive disorder). 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. Pls discuss these two possibilities with your doctor preferably a child psychiatrist or pediatric neurologist. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how your son is doing.

I have (in the 3 plus years on this site) never seen a post by a parent saying any additional diet change made a difference (if they had a normal diet). Having said that, omega 3's certainly wouldn't hurt to try!
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.
521840 tn?1348844371 Accurate Diagnosis is the Key to Effective Interventions At Mindworks (our private clinic), we frequently receive inquires from parents concerned about ADHD. In this article, I will try to present some general information to help parents become a bit more familiar with this relatively common disability. One of the first things we all associate with ADHD is hyperactivity—the kid you see running around like he’s wearing a jetpack with a frantic mother chasing him.
Avatar n tn Have you considered ADD - Attention Deficit Disorder (without the hyperactiveness). Just a thought ....
Avatar n tn My son is not focused or eveen paying attention during homework. Im trying my best just to get him to focus a bit just so he can at least review.

Avatar f tn org/articles/add-adhd/attention-deficit-disorder-adhd-in-children.htm I would find a psychologist or psychiatrist who specializes in ADHD and have her examined. I really don't trust pediatricians to do this. Typically, these days, they are too busy to do a through job. If you have any questions or need more info - please post here or on the ADHD site I mentioned above.
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 An additional possibility (which can occur alongside depresion) is that he displays an inattentive form of Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It would make sense to have him assessed by a child mental health professional. The diagnosis can be clarified and, if pertinent, medication and other interventions can be planned.
Avatar f tn I varies from kid to kid, but here are some symptoms: Trouble following directions excessive talking at times likes excitement/sweets/sodas/movies trouble with concentration/attention/focus trouble getting what people say/poor listener poor organization skills impulsiveness/fidgiting/interrupting temper tantrums/arguing easily bored with things (poor stimulation) trouble with homework/schoolwork running off in the store a lot easily distracted poor sense of time There's a behavior assessment
Avatar m tn INTUNIV™ is a prescription medicine used to treat the symptoms of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). INTUNIV™ is not a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant. INTUNIV™ should be used as a part of a total treatment program for ADHD that may include counselling or other therapies.
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 (we adults call it abuse) and not because you have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD/or ADHD). If you have ADD, then you know you can discuss your full medical diagnosis with either your endo or your psychiatrist.
