School Suspects my brother got ADHD

Hi all,

I am wondering if I could get some advice please on ADHD. Today was told by my parents that my little brother who is 10 may have ADHD,

As his behaviour at school has been very bad. He was in trouble a few weeks ago and remember being told they were seeing how he gets on for 3 weeks. As he gets into a lot of fights in the playground etc. Then he apparently punched two other kids in the face. Also pushed a teacher and hit a girl.

Although we see he has bad behaviour we never thought he had this. But I know my parents looked through the symtoms and see that everyone of them he has. He does have a bad temper.

It's really strange though as I am having a few difficulties with my own son as he is 4 and worried he may have it as he has a short attention span and very hyperactive like my brother aswell. So a bit weird this come about as my son being seem by child development worker aswell at the moment.

Re: School Suspects my brother got ADHD

My middle son was diagnosed at 5 and my middle one at 7. Although both had it they each were at a different degree. I always said different sides of the spectrum. Tonight here on the news they stated that there was going to be a new mandate for children. I forgot the exact ages, but for your son at 4 the way to handle ADHD was going to be behavioral therapy first, then possible medication, I beleive for your brother it was going to be both. There are online surveys now that can help you see if its a possibility. I would suggest a visit to a doctor, and even maybe a therapist. This is not easy for a parent to handle. It can become easier with education. There are a lot of people here that have ADHD or children with it that would be willing to help if or when you need it.
