Hello, I have a 9 yr old daughter that may have ADD. My 5 yr old son has Autism , so I am going to get his doctor to evaluate her , but in the meantime any information would be helpful . As a child Rachel would always cry for me and be very dependent on me . I have always had to help her do everything . Things like brushing her hair , still help her put her shoes and socks on button her buttons . When I tell her a direction , for example ... Rachel go put the book on the table , she will ask ,, where do you want me to put the book ,, she forgets that quick !!! And if she thinks she did'nt bring an assignment home , she gets hysterical and starts crying uncontrollable. She is'nt hyper !! Just has a hard time remebering what she is told to do . She also has a hard time comprehending what she reads .... She reads fast ,, but don't know what she just read about .. She is a very good loving and sweet child but has a hard time paying attention !! Alot of times she stares off in space ... If anyone would like to ,, you can write me at DeAnnaStewart74@aol.com ,,, Thank you , I would appreciate it ,, Have a good day ! I want to get her as much help as possible .. Has any certain medications worked for anyone???
