: I am writting in reference to my 2 year old child, she has epilipsy and is a very hyper child...she shows signs of ADD, other kids I know and other parents have told me they about this disorder, and the symptons and my daughter shows all the related signs, but the doctor says she is too young to be tested. I feel she needs some sort of medical attention. She don't sleep at night, maybe only 3 hours a night, no nap in the day time, constantly is on the go , and totally out of control..She self mulitate's herself, throws temper tantrums to the point she destroys things , bangs her head off the walls.. throws food, and does not listen. I am so fustrated in where to turn , if anyone can help me it would be so great.
: thanks to all,

The behaviors you mention do need medical attention. Ask your doctor for a referral to a good specialist before she does any real damage. Yes she probably is to young to be tested for ADD but the other problems she has should be looked into now before they get out of hand. Good Luck
