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 m tn However, some people have problems learning due to attention deficit disorder. Stimulant medications have been shown to be effective for reducing symptoms of ADHD such as distractability and impulsivity. Sometimes mood and thought disorders interfere with learning as well, and these conditions can also respond to medical interventions. A psychiatrist is the right professional to visit to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for psychotropic medications.
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 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.
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 n tn I have been diagnosed at different times with panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, bipolar II, and adult attention deficit disorder. I've never felt that any particular one was totally correct, and so have been researching to find out what is wrong. What are some examples of symptoms in "mild asperger's".I have lived most of my life feeling as if things were not quite right.Thank you.
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.
Avatar n tn 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. In handling and managing your daughter just tries to be specific & clear in your instructions. In addition, if this persists please consult a child psychologist in order to understand appropriate treatment line. Hope this helps.

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 Autistic Disorder, Rett’s Disorder, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder, Asperger’s Disorder, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder Not Otherwise Specified (Including Atypical Autism). ODD is in the same major section, but in the subsection titled: Attention-Deficit and Disruptive Behavior Disorders.
429700 tn?1308007823 Hi Deb, Is the problem ADD (attention deficit (with out) hyperactivity disorder) or CAPD ( central auditory processing disorder) the reason behind the question is that sx can seemingly overlap, though there is a distinct difference but ADD and ADHD is more widely known.
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 Learning disability is a condition where you get to see such symptoms. Especially dyslexia, a reading disorder, can show symptoms of inability to grasp the language by reading. If you happen to listen to the same portion, you may remember it well and understand it as well. Do you feel you also have a good ear? Another possibility is that of ADD (Attention deficit disorder). You just can not concentrate on one task for a long time.
Avatar n tn Hi, I wanted to know how appropiate it is to medicate a child with attention deficit disorder (non hyper) with Ritalin. I believe that Ritalin is recommended to ADHD children because it helps to control de hyperactivity but I don't know what benefits does it have with ADD children.
Avatar m tn I read somewhere that it is a symptom of Adult Attention Deficit Disorder. Is this true? I do seem to have some of the other symptoms. This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Dermatology/Severe-Itching-on-arms/show/241701">Severe Itching on arms</a>.

If after reading that , you still have concerns, I would recommend getting the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley as it covers a ton of stuff that will be helpful. If I can provide any more information, please post. Best wishes.
