Avatar n tn Posted by Marjorie Kravitz on May 30, 1999 at 10:18:30 My 5-year-old grandson was having problems with impulsive behavior and anger that made him very difficult to deal with. After a try at behavior management [1-2-3 magic], the pediatrician suggested putting him on Ritalin. The changes have been dramatic. He is now a bright, personable child who enjoys success in everyday interactions.

This could well be the case with your daughter, though thre's no particular indication of this in the information you provided.

Avatar m tn I was hoping to have a tracker to monitor attention deficit disorder so I can keep record of specific days that are easier to focus vs. days that are nearly impossible and hopefully find a pattern. This way if there are particular days/weeks/months that I find myself in distraction land I can take special precautions to get more sleep, take meds, watch my diet closer, exercise more, ect... I think it would be a very valuable tool for anyone suffering from ADD. Thank you!
Avatar f tn Hi, my son has all the symptoms of ADD, however, as his QB test results were within normal parameters we have basically had his case closed by the community paediatricians. Is it possible for a child with ADD to actually get normal results? I just don't know where to turn now...

Avatar n tn There has been countless studies done that demonstrated that patients with epilepsy have a significant increase in behavioral disturbances of all kinds, including hyperactivity and inattention. There are multiple factors considered in the evaluation of a child with epilepsy and hyperactivity or inattention. Electroencephalographic monitoring is helpful to distinguish between behavioral inattention and partial complex or absence seizures.
