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.

118225 tn?1278658540 Sometimes learning difficulties can be attributed to what "seems" like an attention deficit disorder, when the root of the problem is actually that the child is having difficulty processing oral and written commands and accessing written print (as well as printing it). It is good that you are getting it checked out. The other thing is too, his medication might have some side effects that you want to discuss with your doctor.
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 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 Alice, ADHD, Attention deficit Hyperactivity disorder, is not necessarily correlated with IQ testing. There is no specific neuropsychiatric test that is diagnostic of ADHD; it is a clinical diagnosis. There are three types of ADHD: inattentive type, hyperactive-impulsive type and combined type. From your description your son may have inattentive type.

Avatar n tn Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (primarily Inattentive type). But employ the behavioral measures first - they may be sufficient.
Avatar f tn Namaste, People with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) have difficulty sustaining attention and concentration. They typically exhibit inappropriate levels of activity, distractibility, and impulsivity. While ADD and ADHD are usually diagnosed in childhood, they can last (often undetected) throughout adolescence into adulthood.
Avatar n tn However, it may be that he displays Inattentive-type Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Since he is doing well in school, even if he displays the condition, there's really no need to treat it. If he starts to do less well, it would be prudent to have him evaluated.
Avatar n tn Dear Jumana, Some of what your son is displaying is typical of children who display Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (primarily Inattentive Type). But some of his behavior is not really typical of ADHD, and may be indicative of some developmental immaturity, Developmental Disorder, Mood Disorder, etc. The most helpful intervention would be to seek an evaluation by a mental health profesional. This person can help refine the diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.
Avatar f tn My son (who is 5) has just been diagnosed as having both attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and having PDD-NOS (pervasive development disorder--not otherwise specified).

However, there are or can be side effects - so Google whatever med you get and read about it. Usually the doctors start out with a small dosage and wait to hear back from the patient as to how it is working - so make sure you communicate with your doctor.
Avatar f tn My son just turned 17 and in the past 7 weeks he has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder- inattentive type and Dysgraphia. Also, his neuropsych testing revealed that his "cognitive processing" falls into the "significantly impaired" less than 1% range and his "working memory" also falls into the "significantly impaired" less than 1% range.
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 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 n tn Your daughter is now sufficiently old that the evaluation could produce useful results. Inattentive-type Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is a possibility. It might be useful for you and her teacher to complete one of the several standardized checklists that are employed to help determine the presence of symptoms typical of ADHD (and other conditions as well). Examples of such inventories are the Conners Behavior Checklist and the Basic Assessment System for Children.
Avatar n tn Department of Foods and Nutrition, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN 47907-1264, USA. ***@**** Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the diagnosis used to describe children who are inattentive, impulsive, and hyperactive. ADHD is a widespread condition that is of public health concern. In most children with ADHD the cause is unknown, but is thought to be biological and multifactorial.
Avatar n tn We have seen the psychologist who diagnosed him with an Inattentive Attention Deficit Disorder. We have opted to use behavioral therapy rather than pharmacological therapy at this time. Each day presents it's own sets of challenges, but we are determined to equip our son with the necessary tools so that he might succeed during these school years without a tarnished self esteem. I wish your family the best!

10907499 tn?1413742644 I had decided to go for evaluations and was found positive for ADD-PI (attention deficit disorder- primarily inattentive, the daydreamer). So we tried Ritalin and Dextroamphetamine but find that I still have problems. It's not a daily problem that affects things I've known to do on a daily basis and some other daily functions that don't follow a specific plan.
Avatar n tn These findings have possible therapeutic and diagnostic implications, but further research is needed to attempt to replicate these differences.

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!!!
