ADHD: Signs And Symptoms You Might Be Suffering From It!

ADHD: Signs And Symptoms You Might Be Suffering From It!

If you have noticed your child to be restless and anxious all the time, it might look cute as the child is highly energetic, but it could be a cause for concern at the same time. It is not normal and the child could be having ADHD that is attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. As the name suggests, it is a disorder with deficiency of attention and in which the child is always hyperactive.

ADHD is a disorder in which the symptoms usually show up before the age of seven. It is characterized by a group of behavioral symptoms that include inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsiveness. The impact of these symptoms is felt extensively where his overall self-esteem is affected, be it at home, preschool or school, academics or extracurricular activities and in interpersonal relationships.

The most common symptoms, which are almost diagnostic of ADHD are:

  1. Inability to hold attention: The child's attention span is very short and it is very difficult to keep them engaged on one particular thing.
  2. Increased restlessness: The child would be extremely restless and gets distracted easily.
  3. Fidgeting: The child would be seen constantly fidgeting with his fingers.

The following are the less common ones:

  1. Learning disability is rare, but can happen. However, the good news is that it does not affect the child's intelligence.
  2. Sleep disorders
  3. Difficulty in following directions
  4. Poor executive functioning skills
  5. Disorganization, which can lead to poor motor coordination and impaired movements
  6. ADHD kids tend to forget things very easily and need help with coordinating movements
  7. The child suffering from ADHD could easily tire and/or feel lethargic with very low energy levels. This can lead to the child procrastinating things and not wanting to do things on priority basis
  8. These children also have difficulties with fine motor and cognitive skills and so there is delay in their overall participation in games.

While these are the pressing symptoms of ADHD, occupational therapy can play a significant role in managing the child in the following ways. As a first step, the caregiver should have a detailed discussion with the school staff and any other people with whom the child interacts significantly.

This will help identify areas that need support from an Occupational Therapy, which are the following:

  1. Support with gross and/or fine motor skills
  2. Support with improving handwriting
  3. Support with engaging in playing sports and games
  4. Support in engaging in social activities
  5. Improving sensory processing difficulties
  6. Improving visual perception
  7. Support in adapting to the environment
  8. Teaching strategies to participate in various social and academic activities

So, while an ADHD child is definitely a cause for concern, proper support from family can help manage the condition. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Pediatrician.

My baby recovered from sepsis on 3rd days of born due to bacterial infection by vancomycin .he is now 1.5 month & is o.k.,received pcv13 & one doctor says not to take PENTA1 vaccine.

Hexaxim is a vaccine which has Diphtheria, tetanus, acellular pertussis, (DTaP), Polio, HIB and Hepatitis B components. If cost is not an issue it is a good choice. Otherwise many choices are available without injectable polio vaccine. That is fine too. You can give oral polio vaccine and Pentvac, Easyfive etc. This is half the cost and equally effective. These also contain DPT, HIB and Hepatitis B minus injectable polio.

Milk based diet till 22 months is really not good. If you r bottle feeding stop it immediately. Give her regular diet as we eat but with lesser spices. U can give regular cows milk only twice a day in a glass. Bottle is habit forming and has many disadvantages. Particularly in summers give more water. Fluids. Juice. Along with balanced diet.

Hi welcome to lybrate if the testes were normal till now and with no pain or discomfort, it can be a hydrocele, but can't be judged by just your one question and without seeing it. Please consult your pediatrician as early as possible.

My 1.5 year old son not eating anything and he not even drink any juices and other things.
He is on only on mother milk.
You have to check if he has hypothyroidism and check his TSH and dotp bottle if you feed him in bottle and feed with a cup or glass. Motivate to eat but do not cajole him or force him.

If tbe immediate neonatal period wss uneventful, it is more likely to be a congenital hydrocephalus. As the bairn is growing fast in this age. Hydrocephalus needs immediate surgical correction by a ventriculo peritoneal shunt.
