I just joined JM and noticed there was a Children with ADHD board. I thought I would say Hi.

I am Stacey. My two oldest have ADHD. My son in particular has it really bad. he was diagnosed when he was in kindergarten and my daughter when she was in 3rd grade.

This is the first time I actually joined a forum for ADHD. It will be nice to talk with other moms who are going through the same things I am going though.

welcome!

I have 3 kids and it is my middle child, Corey who is 5, who is difficult. His DR doesn't think he has ADD or ADHD but more likely ODD (oppositional defiant disorder) but it has many of the same manifestations as ADD/ADHD except he can and does have a good attention span *if* it interests him.

I have him on Ritalin and it is doing great. It helps him deal with the low interest tasks and makes him much less argumentative and defiant.

Hope you enjoy your stay here

Welcome! I have 4 children and my 8 year old son has ADHD and my DD may possibly also have ADHD as well. She is 5 today and we plan to get her in soon to get evaluated. DS was 6 when he was officially diagnosed and is currently taking 54 mgs of Concerta. It was just increased about 2 weeks ago and he seems to be doing really well.

There are a lot of great moms here dealing with the same things, so feel free to vent, ask questions and provide support. That is what this board is about!
