Avatar n tn Hi, My daughter is half way through kindergarten, and hates it. She is falling behind in her school work, having more and more problems understanding it. For example the class is writing 1 through 50 already, she can not even write 1-30. Work with her at home with flash cards etc. At school she constantly get's in trouble for talking, and trying to go play when she doesn't finish her homework, and not listining.
Avatar f tn The ability to sustain attention to video games or television do not mean that a child does not have ADHD. Video games and television shows are so stimulating that even children with ADHD can spend lots of time with them. You may notice, however, that he is more active than other boys even while doing passive activities like watching tv.
Avatar f tn One child of the family may have it and another may not - or everybody can have it. If your child does have it, at least (hopefully), you will be aware of it early and will be able to do what it takes for your child to lead a wonderful life!
Avatar n tn t communicate properly- it is neurological in origin and no med will help this disorder and that is where i started realizing that school said he was always inattentive despite being on different stimulants at the time for like 6 yrs, to see my child with child effects that were so severe that the tics he had were bad to the point they thought he had ocd like behavior and autistic like behaviours when he shuts down it can have the appearance of staring into space, or an outright refusal to coope

Avatar f tn After living with ADHD for 7 years I told my BFF about it. She began telling it doesn't exist and everyone has it. She asked me if I was in meds I said no. I can't take meds because I'm also bipolar and it causes manic stuff. I didn't tell her about the bipolar. Is ADHD really something everyone has or did she just make that up?
Avatar n tn t seem to fit with either asperger syndrome or adhd. Sleep apnea runs in our family. My father in law and my husband's brother both have it and use machines. Can you shed some light on this?

Avatar f tn Anxiety is a common co-disorder of ADHD (usually caused by the ADHD). If you have ADHD, but your husband does not, the chances are less the baby will have it. If you both have it, the chances are higher. There are plenty of families who have one child with ADHD and one without. So, as far as I know, it is not possible to say for certain. Just that your chances are better then parents without ADHD. Hope this answers your question.
Avatar f tn Its a good article,but the link didn't go through for me. Once you are on Webmd - do a search for ADHD causes and you will find it. But, yes, there is a strong genetic component. But, it is certainly not 100%. The advantage you will have is that you have the experience to help your child, if your child does have ADHD. Many kid's parents don't have a clue until the school system gets involved.
Avatar f tn I posted my concerns a few weeks ago but I only got one response so i'm gonna try once more. ; ) My nephew is 12 years old and about to be in the 7th grade. He is no where near ready to be in the 7th grade socially. My family and I have been worried about him for years but his mom refuses to admit there is anything going on other than him being "immature". He speaks like he's still a baby, he still carries around stuffed animals and says that he can't sleep without them.
Avatar f tn And, if he does have ADHD, what you (and the school) are doing will only make things worse - as you are beginning to find out. I could not tell from your post if he is having the same problems at home. That is pretty important to know. Also, if he had these problems last year. If this has only happened this year, that changes things. While I am waiting for you go get back to me on the above questions .....This is a good starting point for finding out about ADHD. http://helpguide.
