In Reply to: Any help that anyone can give. posted by Dee on November 07, 1999 at 18:29:54:

: My daughter is 8 years old and was just diagnosed with ADD Inattentive type. She has no other learning disabilities. I have suspected something was wrong since she was in first grade and I was constantly told that she was just immature. We moved to a new school district this year and her teacher pointed out that she might have an attention problem. I noticed it too. For years I noticed it - but the people who were with her everyday failed to give me any help - until now. I am now trying to decide whether or not to medicate her. We just got her first report card and she is seriously below average. I've tried everything at home. I don't know what else to do for her. I know she is a smart girl when she can fully concentrate on the task at hand. If anyone has any input or information or advice, I could really use it.


No one can help you decide on medication,but I know that my daughter could not function without her daily morning dose ofDEXEDRINE. She was on RITALIN,but for her it was 4x every 3hrs!
I went to a class at our hospital that was very helpful. Arm yourselves w/ as much info as poss.
It takes time to see what works. Also see the web and bks on suggestions on what can be done in the classroom to help.
