Impulse Control Disorders and ADHD
Dealing with ADHD & ODD
My soon to be 5 year old son has been diagnosed with ADHD & ODD. We’ve literally just started treatment (Stratera and therapy). Our first attempt to help was doing martial arts. We’ve tried that for the past 4 months but it’s not helping at all. He was just expelled from daycare for repeatedly hurting other children. Needless to say, our family is burning the candle at both ends in trying to deal with his issues as well as taking care of his older brother and work full-time. We’re very hopeful that things will get better with meds and therapy. Right now we’re just trying to make it through one day at a time. Any advice/support/tricks of the trade would be greatly appreciated.
