Children(s) Name(s) and ages:
Micayla 10, Justin 8, Alan 3, baby due 8/1
Child(ren) with ADD/ADHD:
Do they have ADD or ADHD or combinations type:
At what age were they diagnosed:
In 1st grade, but we knew she had it since she was 3.
Do you or your childs father have ADD/ADHD:
Her father (not my husband) has ADHD (as well as most everyone in his family) and is also manic depressive among other things.
What have you found that helps your child (wether it be meds, deep pressure, brushing, exercise, etc):
Meds during school, talking to her in a calm voice, repeating myself often.
Something about you and anything else you would like to share:
Micayla is being put in for a referral to see a psychiatrist because her medications aren't really helping anymore. Her teachers as well as friends and myself have noticed for a while that she is showing signs of having manic depressive disorder as well, so we'd like to get that evaluated. I am a military spouse, my husband is in the Air Force.
