    Does anyone else keep forgetting what they were doing in the middle or forget everything they intend to do when they leave/enter a room? How severe does it get for you, and is it related to your ADHD?Trying to figure out how much I should be worried because while these experiences are common they have suddenly increased for me.

    Does my son have ADHD???

    I have a 3 year old son who is truly the definition of a problem child. At least people label him that way, I see him as my sweet innocent baby that doesn't know better. But everybody in my family says he knows better by now, and that I should discipline him differently. He is constantly on the go, can not concentrate for even a short period of time to do a couple flash cards. I had to take him...

    My 3.5 year old was just diagnosed with ADHD. We have had two visits with a MFT. One just my husband and I and one with my daughter. What type of therapy will they do with her? Medication isn't an option at this time. I have heard ABA is for Autism but sometimes can be used for ADHD. I am feeling a little overwhelmed with it all but I am also overwhelmed by the behavior of an ADHD child so it...
