This is a good idea to do with How can my meds.

I am 16 and in medicine for ADHD. The name of the meds are really Intuniv & Strattera, I tried to pull them out. Because I thought I was really happy with my performance on not using it and know that I can work without it. But my parents do not think I can do it and I will strive to live in When I am off, I have same problem as when I'm in it. But worse in the eyes of my parents. As a result, there is a bit of bias when testing out the behavior of me. meds meds I did some research and found that since they were created in your system will be cold turkey side effects make the least. What I want to do is to stop using. meds, but it seems to hide the pills that I take. It after a few weeks, I'll tell my parents, so the least bias. This is a good idea to do with How can my meds.

It is difficult to determine drug behavior. Working on your own, I was put on Prozac and are open to me as a monster. I do not understand it. But even working with my friends, my mother get me out of it. However, it is your body, so if you think you do not. Is it necessary to talk with your doctor. Do not play games with drugs can cause bad problems.

what is the difference between thetwo?

my mom and my doctor says i have both ADD and ADHD. but every one at school says they are the same thing but they are not. what are the differences between ADD and ADHD? i really need to know. to prove them wrong

The difference between ADD and ADHD, in short, is a simple “nothing.” But since I’m sure you want a more of a detailed explanation, I will elaborate.

Through the years ADHD (Attention Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder) has had many names. ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) is one of those many names. ADD has been used so recently and so frequently that many people still use it instead of ADHD. This has naturally created confusion among adults with ADHD and parents of children who have ADHD. It raises the question “Which one do I have?”

Imagine there is a new disease in San Francisco. The doctors study it and call it “Disease A.” Later that week, in Denver, doctors discover that same disease and not knowing that disease already exists, call it “Disease B.” Everywhere this disease shows up it is called by a different name. No one has made the connection that Disease A is the same thing as Disease B and C and D and etc… One day all the doctors get together at a conference and decide that all these alphabet diseases are the same thing. They call it by one name since twenty names for the same disease is confusing.

Now, try to relate the fictional story to ADHD, previously known as ADD, brain damaged syndrome, minimal brain dysfunction (MBD), hyperkinetic impulsive disorder, and so on. Since all of these have no major differences and are almost exactly alike, they are given one name. While the diversity is not as substantial, there are different types of ADHD just as there are different types of cancer. Could you imagine if lung cancer was called something totally different than colon cancer? It would get very confusing.

Some professionals still use the term “ADD” but it is the same as if they used “ADHD.” To sum it up, ADD technically is ADHD and vice versa.

There are two main types of ADHD: Inattentive and Hyperactive. Both are considered ADHD. If someone is diagnosed with ADD it’s the same as “ADHD: Predominately inattentive.” Predominately inattentive means that the hyper-active elements of ADHD are not as relevant

Why Do People Hate Hearing Honest/Truthful Answers?

This is more of a rant, than a genuine question, but…

I notice that people on yahoo answers hate reading truthful answers. This is just an example, not something that really happened: Someone will ask a question about how to lose weight. I’ll get a pile of thumbs down when I answer with “Eat less and exercise.” while other responses will be feel good answers like “take these magic pills, but neglect your calorie count, because the pills should work” will get thumbs up. Unbelievable.

If I ask a question, I don’t want bullsh** or feel good answers that are sugar coated. What gives?
Not to mention it gets picked as the best answer

You are so right! It’s because we’ve become a country full of narcissistic people who need to have their ears tickled all the time! Consequently, we either have to stroke everyone and tell them how wonderful they are, or weigh our words so that we’re politically correct, or we are considered to be mean-spirited and prejudiced and who knows what else! It’s so ridiculous — plus, the added down side is that our children are being brought up to believe that they should feel happy at all times, they should not have to compete, and they shouldn’t have to eat what they don’t want to, wear what they don’t want to, or DO what they don’t want to. The result? Mediocrity at best and the great probability that we are raising our children so poorly that they will not be able to compete in this global society. As soon as we succumbed to the notion that we need to feel good inside and out at all times and if we don’t, we have some alphabet soup psychological disorder that must be explored ad nauseum…well, we were on our way to ruin! ADHD-ADD-OCC-OCD and on and on. People need to find self-control and self discipline…How’s that for a continuation to your rant? I SO enjoyed your ‘rant’…Thanks for starting my day with all my blood circulating and raring to go!!!

Video Games are the Future

*Thirty Five Years Ago

The fledgling video game business was struggling to make a name for itself as it competed with toys, playing cards and board games for customers. The early games like Pong, Pac Man and Donkey Kong were very basic in terms of technology, and they had very little creativity involved with their designs and functions. Today, the computer online game industry is a multi billion dollar extravaganza that has progressed increasingly, and it is starting to steal some of the spotlight from the glamorous motion picture industry.

With technological advances like the next generation motion capture systems, high definition graphics, Dolby Sound and Motion Sensor Remote controls that enable the players to actually get up off their chairs and get some exercise as they kick, punch, jump, fish, swing, golf and dance their way through sessions, video games have become more than just toys. They are an escape that offers a whole new reality. Kids and adults alike are playing Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii games more than ever before and the industry itself is getting bigger and bigger every day.

But there is one great advantage that video games have over movies, and that is that they offer interaction. You can actually be involved with what is happening on the screen, instead of just watching it like you do at a theater. This gives you the feeling of empowerment that you just do not get from watching movies. These games offer more than an escape, they offer a journey into another world where your actions have no real negative consequences on yourself.

Video games have come a long way since the days of Pong, Pac Man and Donkey Kong. While the Video Game Awards are not quite the Oscars yet, they are certainly on a pace to give them a run for their money in the future in terms of publicity. Celebrities are starting to notice that the spotlight on Hollywood is being shared by a newcomer to the world of entertainment, and they are following the light, as they do naturally. It is an inevitable natural progression, much like the relationship between a whale and a pilot fish. Big celebrity names are starting to integrate into the computer game industry, and as this happens it only means more publicity for both parties involved. This is ultimately good for gamers too, for as the industry gets bigger and bigger, the games and the consoles will only get better and better.

Recently, many new online gaming services have been introduced. The world is having a visible affect on the online gaming industry, as more and more people turned towards playing and enjoying online games. Games on the Internet were once an imaginary phrase, but since the introduction of thousands of user friendly and easy operating games on the Internet, people are finding that fiction has become reality.

*Chill out and Play Games

One of the best ways the majority of us relax, stay engaged, stave off boredom, or even burn away hours at work is to play games video games, online computer games (if you dont know there are probably a few addictive games in your word program, right?), or online games.

While we now know, too, that when you play games (of any mode and of certain types), those games help to sharpen some of our mental faculties, Alzheimers, and, in my coo-coo world, the insanity of such needful mental aberrations as ADD, ADHD, and OCDthough this last benefit is not necessarily empirically proven. There has been quite a bit of research done on this topic and you can bet there will be a whole lot more to come.

So lets sit back, kick our shoes off, and relax playing your favorit games.

What do you do to focus on the course?

Golf is know as a sport that is more mental than physical. I have the physical part down pat. I get complimented on my swing a lot, and can hit the ball well. (I’m not trying to brag, I’m just trying to give you a better sense of the situation.) However, whenever I go out and play eighteen, I have such a hard time focusing on what I want to do. If I do manage to focus on some holes, I play much better than I do otherwise. Even if I go and tell myself I’m going to focus all eighteen, I forget and don’t do it. I have ADHD so I don’t know if that contributes to it. Basically I want to hear from people who had this problem and fixed it, or know of a proven method to fix it.

Thanks

I usually focus on the shot at hand, and not the entire 18 holes.

What Is Adhd Stand For

Natural Remdies for ADHD Children and Lifestyle Changes are an Alternative to Medications

Natural remedies for ADHD children do exist. As most people are aware, ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Children affected by this disorder have a difficult time keeping still, maintaining their concentration, forgetfulness, impaired judgment and learning disabilities. The majority of children diagnosed with this disorder are put on Ritalin or other pharmaceutical therapies.

Studies have shown that ADHD is caused by a problem in the area of the brain that is responsible for coordinating external stimuli. Norepinephrine, a chemical in the brain, carries messages back and forth between different areas of the brain. These messages activate the needed areas, while telling unneeded areas to shut down. In ADHD, this process is impaired, allowing different areas of the brain to compete with various stimuli. The result is confusing for the child, and they can get irritated, aggressive or anxious.

For those who wish to use natural remedies for their ADHD children, there are diet and lifestyle changes to make in addition to herbal remedies. They have been found to be effective, and don’t lose effectiveness over time like pharmaceutical drugs.

First, the child should avoid sugar. There is evidence that children with ADHD may not process sugars properly, resulting in aggressive and restless behavior. Soft drinks should also be avoided, even the sugar-free varieties. Soft drinks contain phosphates that cause exaggerated muscle activity due to the fact that they displace calcium and magnesium levels.

Make sure your child gets enough sunlight. Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) is sometimes misdiagnosed as ADHD or ADD. Full-spectrum lighting can be used if the child cannot go outdoors.

The herbs that have been found most useful in treating ADHD naturally are Skullcap, Gingko biloba, German chamomile, Oatstraw, Gotu Kola, Rooibos, Valerian, Lemon Balm, Ginseng (both Siberian and Panax) and Hawthorn. Some of these herbs can be found in combination remedies.

Gingko is well-known for improving memory. It also increases blood flow to the brain and increases the neurotransmitter levels, which will improve a child’s ability to focus. Gingko also tends to make these changes permanent, so it doesn’t need to be taken forever.

Gotu Kola also helps memory and brain function, while decreasing anxiety. Research is also showing that Gotu Kola helps increase circulation.

Siberian Ginseng is another brain stimulant (amazingly, stimulating the brain actually helps those with ADHD to focus). It also helps moderate the body’s release of energy. Panax Ginseng normalizes body function and relieves stress and fatigue.

Yet another facet of natural remedies for ADHD lies in homeopathy. Homeopathy distills the essence of plants into small beads that melt under the tongue. Homeopathy is based on the theory that like cures like, so if you had a fever, you’d take a remedy that was known to cause heat. That is a very simplistic explanation, but it conveys the gist of it. Many parents have had good results using homeopathy for ADHD, and the remedies are extremely gentle. Nux Vomica, for example has been used successfully for ADHD, in the 6x strength, which is available over the counter at any health food store that sells homeopathic medications.

Try out some of the natural remedies for ADHD before subjecting your child to the pharmaceutical alternatives. Whether you choose homeopathic or herbal remedies, you can find something safer for your child.

Adhd Information In Spanish

Learning Disabilities vs. ELL (English Language Learners) NEED SERIOUS HELP! PLEEEASE :(?

Im writing a paper on the similarities and differences between student with learning disabilities (visual, hearing, ADHD, physical, so on) and ELL students. if you have any fact to help me write this paper, any personal opinions, or experience, it would be GREATLY APPRECIATED. (:

A Quick answer:
-Deaf and Hard-of-Hearing (DHH) is similar to EL because they are languages that have to be learned. EL students have to build their English language from a primary language.eg.Spanish DHH students have no language and have to learn American Sign Language (ASL). EL and DHH students have to build a vocabulary and be able to use it in the appropriate way. DHH students have to learn how to communicate their language and then be able to read and write English. ASL and English are different by the syntax and sentence structure. Also, DHH students are Non-Verbal and EL students are Verbal. They are similar by the use of the same vocabulary. Once DHH and EL students start to build their vocab, they have to process and comprehend what they are reading, writing or communicating in English. One of the most important things in this case is to close the language barrier so the student can bloom.

-As for mental or physical: it depends on their diagnosis. A student may have a challenge with their speech. Some allow students only able to communicate using the Picture Exchange Communicating System (PECs) or 1-2 words phrases to communicate their wants/Needs. In addition, some students may also need O.T. and/or P.T.to help them become successful and achieve their IEP goals.

-ADHD/ADD: With all of the students that I have worked with, they usually need RSP and/or Speech. Some have a difficult time grasping all of the information because of their thought process. There is more info. but I am limited on time, space..

-The MOST important thing is to have the Parent(s) or Guradian(s) involved in their education. This will close communication barriers, help their child grow along and their child/parent relationship.

-This open question needs to be more specific so you can have a more facts etc. I hope all of this helped.

Adhd Coaching Virginia

Are you in Charge of your Life?

Is life just passing you by without you taking any part in it? Is your voice not being heard? The following are six signs that you know you are letting your life slip by without having any input. But have no fear, there are ways to take back charge of your life.

1. You aren’t taken seriously

When in a group of people, even by the water cooler, your mouth is shut tight. You think of witty and intelligent things to say, yet you are silenced. Or, when you are able to pry your mouth open, the social butterflies take complete control and cut you off. You know that you can contribute to the conversation as well, but you just need an extra boost of confidence to make that first step forward.

2. You never take a stand on any issue

You think you have opinions on issues, but you’re not sure if you should talk about these sensitive topics. When you really do think about it, you start to feel a little more one way about an issue than the other way. Be educated first before discussing the issue. Research the topics and find out information regarding both sides of an issue. Once you think you know enough about these topics, then you will be able to have confident conversations.

3. You are afraid to follow your dreams

You have dreams, you know what makes you the happiest. But you are afraid of the future, afraid of the uncertainties, and possibilities. You are afraid to make the first move, so you hold on to the security of your present life.

4. You could be bigger, but you stay small

You talk big. You dream big. You make plans in your head, but just accept what you are given. Achieving your dreams isn’t always the easiest thing to do. So you stay at your job that pays the bills.

5. You can’t do anything without someone else’s approval

You have ideas and plans but can’t go anywhere with them without asking someone else if they think your thoughts are good. You think your ideas are great when they first come to fruition, but the thought of someone else disapproving of your ideas makes all self-confidence run away.

6. You have no plan for your life

Wake up, go to work, go to sleep; wake up, go to work, go to sleep; wake up, go to work, go to sleep. Interspersed with the occasional party or time spent with friends on weekends, this is how every day of your life has looked. You have no future plans for yourself. You just work the job you have and live the life you have accepted. You have thought of things that you could do, thinking “that could be neat,” but that’s all you do: just think about it.

If you are not in charge of your life, then one way that you can take charge of it and improve your quality of life is by hiring a life coach. Life coaches are increasingly popular these days among all types of people searching for self-improvement. They help you to refocus your life and to make it go in the direction you originally wished for. And, most of all, they give you hope for your life and future. So if you feel like you have no control over your life, then, maybe, it’s time to hire a life coach.

Adhd Natural Remedies For Adults

Monday, June 1st, 2009

adhd natural remedies for adults

A natural remedy for ADHD is omega 3 – or is it?

Is Omega 3 a natural remedy for ADHD? The simple answer is
no. Omega 3 is an essential fatty acid that is absolutely
vital for adults, hence the word ‘essential’ – for children
of birth age until age two, it is even more important that
they receive enough of the Omega 3 fatty acid DHA for the
healthy construction of the brain. Beyond two years, they
need EPA for the healthy function of the brain.

So why is it not a remedy? It is not a remedy for the
simple reason that it should already be included in the
diet, and not simply as an afterthought to add it to the
diet because the child or adult has ADHD.

Does this mean that if you give a person with ADHD
high-strength pharmaceutical grade fish oil in addition to
a poor diet, they will not feel any effects? The answer has
to be yes, of course they will feel the effects. If you
starve anyone for long enough of vital nutrients then the
body will react in certain ways – if you then replace those
nutrients, the body will return in time to its correct
balance.

What is ADHD? A good definition is as follows:

A common developmental and behavioural disorder, it is
characterised by poor concentration, distractibility,
hyperactivity, and impulsiveness that are inappropriate for
the child’s age. Children and adults with ADHD are easily
distracted by sights and sounds in their environment,
cannot concentrate for long periods of time, are restless
and impulsive, or have a tendency to daydream and be slow
to complete tasks.

Fish oil supplementation

With current research revealing that Omega 3 fatty acid
deficiencies may be a factor affecting learning
difficulties, authorities in Durham, England, initiated a
programme to see if it was possible that an improved diet
would lead to improvements in the classroom. But
overturning the high-carbohydrate, heavily-processed diets
that children typically consume was going to be a momentous
task. So they decided to see if fatty acids in the form of
a fish oil supplement could be of any use.

This was the largest and most extensive trial looking at
Omega 3 fatty acids and learning conditions to be carried
out within the United Kingdom.

This trial involved more than 100 children at 12 primary
schools in the Durham area. The trial looked at dyspraxia
and motor skills, but also assessed for dyslexia and ADHD.

Trial results

At the start of the trial, the percentage of children
within the clinical range of an ADHD diagnosis was set at
32% for the fish oil group and 31% for the placebo group.

After 3 months of omega 3 fish oil supplementation, the
percentage of children within the clinical range of an ADHD
diagnosis reduced to 18% for the fatty acid group, whereas
this only dropped 1 % for the placebo group.

A raw score was calculated from the teacher rating form
that assessed each child’s behaviour. After 3 months there
was a highly significant reduction seen in the fish oil
supplement group, compared to those on placebo, in this
behavioural score. The fatty acid group reduced from an
average score of 74.7 to 58.1., whereas the before and
after treatment scores for the placebo group were 69.5 and
67.9.

The active fish oil group also saw significantly reduced
teacher ratings on the Conners’ DSM ADHD global scale after
3 months, compared with the placebo group. The placebo
group saw similar improvements on this scale after crossing
over to the active fish oils for the 3-6 month period of
the trial.

Within 3 months children on the active supplement saw a
significant reduction on the rating scale of
Hyperactive-Impulsive behaviour, compared to those on
placebo. Further reductions were seen in the 3-6 month
period of the study.

Dramatic results were also seen within just 3 months of the
dyspraxia trial. The active group supplementing with Omega
3 fish oil saw significant improvements in reading (9.5
months), spelling (6.5 months) and behaviour, compared to
the placebo group where no overall improvement was made.

During the 3-6 month period when the placebo group crossed
over to Omega 3 fish oil supplementation, considerable
improvements were shown in the same areas, with an average
reading gain of 13.5 months and an average spelling gain at
over 6 months. The active group continuing supplementation
displayed further signs of progress or maintained their
improvement.

At the start of the trial, children were a year behind
their chronological age for reading and spelling, but after
the trial, the active group who had been on Omega 3 fish
oil throughout the trial made spelling and reading gains
over and above their age.

An alternative view

On the face of things these results look fairly conclusive.
However, when you take into account that by their own
admission they had a real battle with the children (and in
some cases parents) to change their eating habits then the
results – to a qualified dietician and anyone who knows
what a balanced diet is – swing. Far from seeming to show
that fish oil cures ADHD and dyspraxia, it rather appears
to demonstrate the need for a very balanced diet, with all
these nutritional components included in the first place.

What would be far more interesting than turning a lot of
unruly children’s diets into the correct balance and then
claiming that fish oil helps with ADHD, would be to take a
lot of children who eat a very balanced Mediterranean style
diet, which is already very balanced, and perform a trial
with those children to see if it actually improves their
reading or spelling ability.

Conclusion

Not all the children involved in the trial showed great
gains in behaviour, spelling and reading, and those
children that did show great gains were in my opinion
children who were very badly deficient in Omega 3 already
through a very poor diet.

The correct approach is not to supplement children with
fish oil, but to drastically improve the child’s eating
habits, following the example of a Mediterranean diet which
includes oily fish, and trying to cut out all additives and
preservatives and the wrong kinds of “bad fats”.
As most parents will know this is almost an impossibility,
but changing a few little things about the diet will make a
difference. As for the fish oil capsules, if you really
can’t get your child to eat oily fish then as this trial
proves, supplementing with a high quality fish oil
supplement is highly advisable so that your child can get
the correct amount of Omega 3 in their diet.

Adhd Disability Check

Friday, April 17th, 2009

adhd disability check


Question for fellow writers?

So lately I have been coming along great in my writing skills, but there’s only one problem. I can’t finish anything. It is a fact that I have not finished a single short story for nearly 3 years. As a matter of fact I can rarely get past the first ten pages before losing my interest. What are some good exercises to get rid of this disability to focus?

Oh, and just for a note: I don’t have ADD or ADHD i have checked, so that’s not the problem. Also it’s not that I feel so attached to my characters that I dare not abandon them.

Maybe it’s your writing that’s boring you. Try spicing up your writing and adding more conflict for your characters. More importantly try to write about something that excites you. Keep the same characters and put them in a story that you’re more excited about. Change their personalities, and for added conflict make sure your characters personalities and likes and dislikes are different and compete with each other as this will create conflict with your characters.

Have you researched writing a novel, or have you taken any creative writing classes? If not then I suggest you start researching how to write a novel and change your approach accordingly. No matter how it seems, writing a novel is not easy and isn’t something you can just jump right into without any knowledge whatsoever outside of reading books. You need to understand the elements of a story and how to use fanciful vocabulary to spice up things.

Try switching how it’s written. If it’s written in first-person then see if it’ll work better for you by writing it in 3rd person or 3rd person limited.

If you haven’t looked at any of your previous stories in a while then take another look at them and read over them to see if you can come up with some fresh ideas. Also, make sure you begin planning what will happen in your novels, if you’re not already. Planning will make writing it better because writer’s block can be caused by not planning because you’re stuck at the “what happens next.” To plan you can open another document and save it as Overview. Write what your story is about. The characters and their personality. Minor players and how they play a role. Who the antagonists are and their purpose. And any and everything you can think up. Write a summary of your story, and if you have the plot then write that down also. The plot is *what happens* in your story and this isn’t a brief overview. If you need an example of what a plot is then go to Wikipedia and look up your a book you have read. It’s Wiki page will have an in-dept plot summary, this is how you need to write yours. If you can’t write an in-depth plot then you need to plan out your story more. Also, write an outline of what you expect to happen in each chapter. For instance, Chapter One might consist of the characters meeting, having a fight with the antagonist, running away from home, etc. Do this for as many chapters you can. You make these things happen in your story by writing them based on this outline.

Think about writing out of order. If you know how you want it to end then write the ending. If you know how your character’s house burns down then write that scene, and it doesn’t matter where it happens in the book. I usually skip around in my novel and this is how I keep writing. I have most of my major scenes written and I’m writing around them. Everything that you’ve written can change if need be.

IF nothing is working then it might be time to give up the characters and retire them, because they’re not working for you. As a writer you have to know when to move on. We can become so attached to our characters and what we’ve written that we become closed to change. Change is needed for any novel or story to be as good as it needs to be. I’ve heard of authors scrapping whole books to rewrite it because the first version wasn’t working out. There are times when you might need to rewrite whole sections of your book and cut out characters completely. You need to be open to doing this for the sake of making the story better or else you’ll continue to be stuck. Create new characters and create a new and much better story. This is what you have to do as a writer. Don’t be afraid to scrap previous hard work to make something much better, because that’s the only way you’re going to be able to move on.

adhd low income


What can I do to improve myself?

I’m a male in my early twenties with low self-esteem, ADHD, social anxiety, and OCD, which is primarily obsessional fears about getting hurt by others and compulsions of checking. I don’t have any psychotic disorders, and I’ve tried medication, done therapy, so please, no outside suggestions, I’m just looking for some personal advice because I don’t know how to help myself.

I literally have no friends, I’m at home all the time with no income, and I’m not a student anymore either. I’m slowly losing all my savings, and soon I’ll have to sell my car, which I worked for previously. I’m also overweight and have never kissed a girl, so yeah, not good. Where do I start?

You can walk. Walking is free. You need a job badly. But while you don’t have one you can walk. The trick is just to do it. Get up, get dressed, go out and walk. Then write down how long you walked, and walk more tomorrow.
Get a job. Any job.
The girls, ect will come later. You don’t want them now anyway. This isn’t the real you. Walk, then run.

adhd picture books


Quick Question?

Basically I study a lot and don’t get good grades. Basically, I have to reread sentences a lot. I tend to draw pictures to understand sentences, especially in hard science textbooks. If it says 1 gram per solution, ill draw that if I don’t I won’t understand what that says. I don’t believe in ADHD but I was wondering if I should because I am tired of bad grades. I can’t keep up in any lectures I just get lost and give up. Everything seems so fast. But, my level of understanding in textbooks are sometimes very high it’s just that it can take a very long time to read one chapter like 12 hours. And I have to read it about 2-3 times. So 36 hours per chapter in physics or chem. History books are quicker but still slow and then I speed up if I try to focus. All in all, I just have to try so hard to focus and I get head pains if I try too hard and have to stop.

Ha ha silly, ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder

That’s a disorder where you forget stuff, get distracted easily, and you don’t pay attention, etc.

To me, I think you have OCD-Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Kinda like perfectionism…

Like you have to wash your hands a certain amount of times, and you repeat it—obsessive compulsivity.

It’s a common disorder…and guess what? I pretty much have OCD.

You shouldn’t worry about it, like me.

It doesn’t really make sense that you study so much and end up failing.

Oh well

D:

Good luck w/ your grades.

Adhd Evaluation Scale

adhd evaluation scale


Conner’s Rating Scale – a Tool for Diagnosing Adhd

As more and more people have become aware of the occurrence of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, the incorrect diagnosis of the dysfunction has, unfortunately, become commonplace. One of the tricky things about ADHD is that all people, at one time or another, display some of the symptoms of the condition, and this is particularly true of children. It is important to understand that a correct diagnosis of ADHD can only be arrived at after measuring certain criterion, using certain tools. We will take a look at one of these tools and the criteria measured with it in this article.

Conner’s Rating Scale

This tool is used by parents, teachers, and also by the adolescent in order to report on criteria that he or she feels may be present. It has been designed specifically for ADHD testing, and is used in the first criterion for diagnosing ADHD.

The first criterion of correctly identifying the ADHD dysfunction states that in order to properly be diagnosed, the subject must have had six or more or the following symptoms evident for at least six month prior to the test. In addition, these symptoms must have played a disruptive and inappropriate role for that age level. The symptoms include:

Excessive talking

Blurting out at inappropriate times

Trouble getting activities organized

Frequent losing of objects needed for tasks or activities

A lack of focus on tasks

Careless mistakes or a lack of close attention to details

Failure to complete tasks and to follow instructions

Dislikes prolonged mental effort

Easily distracted

Trouble awaiting a turn

Interrupts

Fidgeting

Frequently “on the go”

As you can see from this list, many of the criteria used to diagnose ADHD are also a part of the natural development of any child. That is why it is so important to measure the child’s symptoms over a period of time, using the correct tools, such as Conner’s rating system.

Although the initial evaluation needs to be done at a personal level, no diagnosis of ADHD is correct without the support of a psychiatrist. Again, it is imperative to note that ADHD follows very strict parameters; misdiagnosing a child could result in irreversible damage.

Adhd Exercise Ball

adhd exercise ball

Can children learn to meditate?

As meditation becomes more and more popular among adults, teaching meditation to children is being promoted as a way to create centeredness and focus at a tender age. Yet many teachers and parents recognize the difficulty of a young child to silence the mind and sit still. As a result, a variety of “children’s meditations” are being invented that often use imagination, focusing on the breath or trying to find stillness within. Unwittingly, these practices have been introduced to children without any track record of success and little if any scientific research on the effects they may have on a child’s brain and development.

Some parents may wonder: should children be taught to discipline their minds or channel their imagination for specific purposes? At what age is it appropriate for my child to meditate? What kind of practice is safe and effective for children? Is there any tradition, precedence or scholarly authority behind the practice of children’s meditation? Is meditation something I can teach my child, or do along with them?

The ancient, venerated Vedic Tradition of meditation prescribes different practices at specific stages of development in the child’s life. Because very young children are still integrating their inner world with the outer world around them, they may find it difficult to practice a meditation that requires them to sit still or inhibits their natural inclination to know and discover. Attempts to settle a child through directing their attention to breathing or trying to create inner silence may instead cause strain and frustration for the exuberant, growing child.

One technique of meditation that has been successfully introduced to many middle and high schools throughout America and around the world is the Transcendental Meditation technique. Based on the broad spectrum of scientific research on the effectiveness of the TM technique for students, [1] educators have felt confident that the Transcendental Meditation program is a safe and reliable practice to help children cope with stress and improve learning ability [2] and behavior [3]. Over 140,000 school children around the world have learned the TM technique in the past three years.

Science has looked at what happens in a the brain during the practice of the TM technique. Findings indicate a healthy development of coherence and balance between all parts of the brain, with increased activation of the pre-frontal cortex [4], the part of the brain responsible for discrimination and higher reasoning. Notably, this type of holistic brain functioning is not found while a child is studying, playing, watching TV, or listening to music; nor does this balanced, holistic brain functioning come about through other types of meditation exercises, such as minding the breath, visualizing, or directing the imagination. All such activities activate specific areas of the brain. Only the meditative state associated with ‘transcending’ during TM practice has been found to activate the entire brain in this holistic way.

Practice of the TM technique not only stimulates brain development and learning ability in children, but also provides natural relief from stress, anxiety, [5] depression [6] and fatigue. “One of the best-documented ways to address anxiety in children is to teach them to deeply relax themselves. Children and adolescents often encounter stress at home and at school” says Dr. William Stixrud, clinical neuropsychologist and faculty at the Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.. “If you can effectively treat a child’s anxiety problems, you significantly decrease the likelihood that they’re going to develop depression, or addictive behaviors, or other kinds of mental health problems. Transcendental Meditation becomes a very important tool, not only in the treatment of children with anxiety problems, but also in the prevention of anxiety disorders.”

Reducing stress [7] and increasing inner happiness increases flexibility, social abilities and self esteem. Children who find approval from within rather than needing it from the outside, are less influenced by peer pressure. Cultivating the practice of meditation can become a valuable tool that a child uses as he matures, preparing him to meet the stresses and challenges of adulthood.

What is the appropriate time in a child’s development to sit and practice eyes-closed meditation? According to the tradition of theTranscendental Meditation program—the Vedic Tradition—no sooner than ten years of age. Starting with just a few minutes morning and afternoon, children ten and older find the practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique easy to master because it doesn’t require focus, concentration or that they sit still. Even children with ADHD are able to practice this meditation successfully [8].

What about children under ten? A special practice appropriate for the developmental stage of early childhood it is the Maharishi Word of Wisdom technique. This eyes-open meditation can be learned by children starting at ages three to four.This practice strengthens the mind and stabilizes the emotions of the young child. The children’s TM technique is practiced a few minutes each day with eyes open, while the child is quietly engaged in easy, natural activities such as walking or coloring. The children’s technique has been found to promote balance in mind and body and integrate the child’s nervous system. [9] The child grows in stability in relation to the outer world and does not become introverted or withdrawn by attempting many such meditative practices that would be unatural for them.

Children benefit most from meditation when their parents are also meditating. A family that meditates together typically finds that their home life grows more harmonious and blissful. There’s more time for nourishing interactions when stress is released during meditation instead of outbursts and arguments.

So what will it be for your children, zoning out in front of the TV, or a few minutes of daily meditation?

Adhd Scale For Adults

adhd scale for adults

No More Medication for Add-adhd – an All Natural Alternative for Children With Add-adhd

There are about 24 million children who are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and now there are many adults being diagnosed also. Most of them if most all are on some form of medication like Ritalin.

There are other ways to get relief other than medication. There are many cases where medication has even made things worse. That is what this is about an alternative for those parents who do not like the affect medication is having on their children.

There is a foundation to good health that most people have never heard of before, mainly because there is not a lot of money in the medical field for staying healthy.

Basically there is a whole industry centered around ADD/ADHD and billions of dollars to be made with the medication. Do we want our children medicated or healthy?

With that being said the question arises what is the key foundation to good health? It is actually pretty simple it is “alkalizing the body.”

When the body is at the proper ph level that is alkalized it is brought to a natural state of balance which leads to optimal healthful condition. The ph scale measures the acidity or alkalinity in the body. The scale goes form 1-14. The lower the number the more acidic the higher the number the more alkaline our bodies are. We need to be in between 7-9 to be at our healthiest.

When the body is too acidic it leads to ill health like cancer, disease and other common illnesses. Natural unpolluted lake water is at about 7.5, which is where the body should be. By the way soda is at about 3 which is very acidic which is unfit for human consumption.

Another question is what leads to an acidic body? Life itself can lead to being acidic like, stress, metal attitudes, certain foods, exercise, environmental pollution and other sources. In the case of ADD/AADHD the child’s body is too acidic. Once the child’s body is alkalized he or she calms down and is able to function better mentally which leads to becoming a happier and healthier child or adult.

So the next question is how do you alkalize the body. Taking proper nutrition. Mainly taking minerals which do the alkalizing like calcium, magnesium and the other minerals we need in our bodies. Which most of us do not get through the foods we eat, especially processed foods.

How does all this tie into ADD/ADHD? What we are finding out is that with proper nutrition for alkalizing we are seeing parents decreasing medication and in many cases stopping medication all together. Which parents are thrilled about.

We advise using the nutrition in conjunction with the medication. That is when parents are seeing the dramatic changes and decide to decrease or stop medication. Of course this is done with keeping the Physician informed.

If you are not satisfied with the medication your child is on this may be an alternative for you.

If you are going to write down anything about ADHD not being real or that i shouldn’t take ritalin- that’s fine, but please give a detailed explanation of your thoughts.

Thanks for helping.

I’m a 22 yr old male and take Ritalin daily for ADHD and depression.

1) Average dosage is from 10mg-60mg a day (Some doctors will go up to 80mg for adults)
2) Life is great on ritalin for me anyways. I am alot more calm, less moody, more focused. I can get things done more than before. I also have kept the same job for the last 18 months and before ritalin I’d get a new job every few months. I also have less depression and am easier to get along with.
3) I was on 60mg but now am down to 40mg a day. I dont need a dose escalation and the effects remain constant for me. People who keep going for higher and higher dosages are doing it for the euphoria.. If you use ritalin to help with focus and drive it will always be good but if you’re chasing the high then you will keep having to up the dosgae.
4) Disadvantages for my health? I’d say sleeping problems and loss of appetite could cause nutritional deficiencies. I howevr have no sleeping problems and get a good 8 hours a night. I also try and force myself to eat even when I can’t. I supplement omega-3 fish oil capsules, Multivitamin/multimineral tablet, B-vitamin complex which helps alot, as well as I take 1000mg of magnesium before bed (which is said to keep tolerance down and it definetly works). So remember to sleep and eat on it that will take away alot of the negative long term effects.

Ritalin is great if used correctly. I take 40mg of Biphentin once daily. It’s a very long lasting preparation of Ritalin available in Canada but not in the USA. I like the instant release forms better though but my doctor is reluctant to prescribe any I.R. form where I had a past addiction to opiates. But it is great stuff when used properly.

I can not live with him at school to help them with these problems. My wife and I both work full-time job and can not leave.

Adhd Owners Manual

adhd owners manual


how can me and my mom have a good relationship?

i am 13 and i have a little brother who is 10 and he is ADHD and my mom treats him better than me. she is always huging him and giveing him kisses and telling him that she loves him and calling him baby and stuff like that. We just got in to a fight because she wont go to church and i do. we are always giting in to fights and i hate it. she is always yelling at me and when i yell at her it makes her mad.
what can i do??????

It must be difficult dealing with being the older sister of a special needs younger brother. In many cases, adolescent girls, have difficulties relating with their mothers, even under the most ideal of conditions. Your mother is trying to deal with an anxiety filled situation, and, you are going through physical, emotional, and hormonal changes, that can make you moody and emotional. Wow, what a pile-up! Your little brother requires special attention, but, at the same time your mother fails to recognize how special you are. Acceptance and a feeling of belonging are important to a young woman trying to discover her place in the world. Yet, your mother may be just as hurt and confused as you are. And, she can’t allow herself to be a little girl, any longer. She has her children to be concerned with, and, you didn’t come with an owners manual, that would tell her when your feelings are hurt, and you need some loving care. So, what is a girl to do? Well, showing your mother extra love and understanding would help. Try spending some time together, girl to girl. Show your brother that you love him too. It’s funny that, Love is the only thing you can give away, and have more of. It is inexpensive, portable, can mend fences, fix broken hearts and put a beautiful smile on the face of anyone! If necessary, I suggest you seek counseling together.

Good luck and God Bless!

Adhd Knowledge And Opinion Scale

Wednesday, April 4th, 2007

adhd knowledge and opinion scale


Can I apply for a Video Game Tester/QA Specialist? Please help!?

I am going to be a senior in high school and live in La Palma, CA.

I want to know if I can apply for a legitimate job and I want to try to be a game tester. I have had a disease called Mononucleosis which is why I have had bad grades most of High School but transferred to an alternative high school called Independent studies. I will be getting my diploma but I want to get a job asap so I can start earning some money. I am 17 years old but will turn 18 on March, 2013.

I am not a dumb student, in fact I was a straight A student in Elementary-Junior High School but because of my sickness and diagnosis of ADHD, I am at an alternative high school while playing video games most of the time because I enjoy it. Do Video Game Testers play games at home while getting paid? I want to know.

I want to know if there are jobs for PC games because I mostly play PC games, but if there are any game testing jobs for consoles I would like to know that too.

Thanks in advance.

Firstly, good work on juggling your life so far with the obstacles you’ve found yourself with. However, straight A’s will get you nowhere in the real world, it tells that you are dedicated in studies, but not much else.

Secondly, to answer your question, QA testing generally is much more freelancer-type work, where you jump from company to company. You should start gaining experience first through a few invitational, closed betas to have somewhat of a portfolio.

In addition to this, you should have extensive knowledge of games and gaming, though often testers of all computer skill levels are hired, however the most prized ones are those who can functionally understand how problems occur, and give suggestions to fix them, you also need a critical mindset, and be able to openly discuss your opinions with the developers, and other testing team. All opinions, even if others were to claim them to be wrong are invaluable to a good development team.

As to how to apply, you should contact individual development teams, while doing closed testing on a larger scale, you should also offer your services (free) for indie companies in the business, just state that you want to look for experience and want to grow a QA portfolio. Only after this, should you contact actual development companies that require QA people, however, you can attempt this earlier on, if you’re feeling particularly lucky, but it’s unlikely that there is ever need for inexperienced QA people.
