ADHD in Girls
IN NEED OF SERIOUS ADVICE FOR MY DAUGHTER!
I am new to this website but wanted to post my story. I am a 26 years old with a 6 year old daughter who was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD last year by our pediatrician. He suggested we try to put her with a child therapist to help with her ADHD and ODD but our insurance didn’t cover it. We decided we wanted to see if we could put her on medication to help her with it but by the time we could get her into the doctor to be seen our insurance had been canceled. We just moved to a new state and are trying to get the insurance through the state because the insurance here will cover the therapy sessions and we want to get her into the pediatrician to get her on to some medications. I am just curious to know what I can do for her now that will help us because since we have moved she has been acting out alot more, which I know is from the huge changes that have been taking place but I just don’t know how to handle it anymore. Are there any types of ways I can discipline her to help her understand how to listen to me and my husband? Also, what medication would you recommend for her to take at her age. She will turn 7 in October but I want to try to get her on something before the new school year starts. Any advice would be definitely appreciated. Thank you!
