Parents of ADHD Children
My son has suspected ADHD
Hi I’ve just joined but I was wondering if any of you would like to talk. My son has been suspected to have ADHD since 16months (when he could walk) but I knew there was something wrong before that as he was always a difficult baby but I just didn’t want to believe it. I was in denile but my partner (ex now) has ADHD amongst other disabilities. I guess I was just hoping my baby didn’t get it however he is 5 years old and I’ve been struggling for years. I’m at my witts end and don’t know what to do or where to turn. My child just won’t listen he will jump run climb and he doesn’t care if he hurts himself ,hurts children & adults runs off & into roads kicks scratches doesn’t listen tells me he hates me calls me names the school are finding it difficult even with a fulltime 1to1 teacher and everyday they call me in to tell me he’s done this he’s done that I just feel so depressed just really hope that I gain a few people I can talk to in similar situations. I have got in contact with the local ADHD service and I’m going to attend a support group but not really sure if this will help but if don’t know what else to do. Also all specialist are involved like paediatric, ed phyc, salt for his speech as he has a cleft palate.
Thanks in advance
