The way it was described to me was that an impulse is carried out before the brain has time to engage and decide whether it’s appropriate leaving the child bewildered. What are the signs of ADHD? It’s a difficult disorder to diagnose because it shares many of the same ... more

How do you feel when you have to admit that something isn’t quite right with your child? I wouldn’t for the longest time and felt like a failure. My youngest son, Steven, was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) this week after several years of struggling with the system. Let me tell you a little bit about Steven so that you can get some idea of what things have been like in the last few years. Steven has just turned 11 years old, he’s tall for his age at 5ft 1in and he only weighs 95lbs. My son is a very gentle and loving child who has an intense desire to be liked and he also hates confrontation. From the ... Read the complete review

I have ADD. Nobody else has really figured it out and I keep it my secret. I am terrified that people will make fun of me and consider me mentally ill. I was never diagnosed in school. I grew up in a place where the name for Attention Defecit Disorder was called "Bad Parenting". There was no Ritalin or special help. You just got beat into submission. I was lucky, the fact that I got up and wandered around the classroom and didn't pay attention was attributed to my high IQ, 166 Wechsler and 171 Stanford Binet, in case any of you wondered. I was able to skate by in all my classes because I never once had to learn anything I did not already know. I ... Read the complete review

Those of us with ADHD children have all had the old chestnut "Make a star chart" thrown at us by well meaning, but misguided family therapists haven't we? These 'magical' star charts (which invariably don't work ) are supposed to encourage our kids to work towards rewards and learn that they will get no attention, positive or otherwise, from bad behaviour. Does this strategy work? Ask any parent of an ADHD child. They will tell you emphatically NO! Star charts might work on so called 'normal' children, whose brains work like the majority, but with ADHD kids you are working on a very un-level playing field! Unfortunately, the ...

There is a lot of rubbish talked about ADHD, mostly by those that no absolutely nothing about the condition. Although it is a biologically based disorder, even in this day and age, you still hear some pontificationg that these children are the way they are because of a lack of parental skills or because they eat too many sweets. Therefore I thought I would put the record straight here. ADHD is a largely hereditary neurological disorder that can strike anywhere. It knows no social or economical bounderies so *anyone* can give birth to a child like this, so please don't be too quick to condemn those who arestruggling to bring up children with ADHD ... you might ...

hiya bit about my kids to start with, I have 2 boys age 3 and 4 both are registered Special Needs and are hyperactive although do not have all the syptoms of ADHD. They can not concentrate for long, and do get very tired easily which results in naughty behaviour. A typical day is get up do breakfast while I am preparing this the two boys would have taken all the cushions off the couch and messed around. I am lucky I hid everything from the rooms now so the things that we do have eg videos,cds are high up ina locked cupboard. I had to do this and screw the tv into the tv unit as they would try and knock it off. Next I would play with them for a few ... Read the complete review
