About this Blog
Some call it attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD), others talk about being hyperactive. Here are the accounts of the life of a parent trying to help a child with ADHD.

About the Author
I am the parent of a child with ADHD who believes that the one of the best ways to help such a child is by sharing experiences with other such parents.

News: Living with ADHD

I found this story in the "Press-Entreprise" (who, I think, republished it from WebMD). If you know a bit about ADHD, you won't find anything new in there. What I liked about it was that it seems well balanced and objective. It's an interesting introduction when you're trying to learn a bit more about your child's situation. Here's the link:

For the record, Sandra does a lot of the cooking around here and I can safely say that A.'s diet is well balanced, he eats very healthy food. As for Omega 3's I'd be curious to read about your experiences with it, if you have any.

I was reading your blog and would like to know your opinion about the service at the Douglas. My son appears to have asperger's and is receiving counceling at the Douglas but I find them very evasive with making diagnosis. Did you push for testing? Do I need to be more aggressive with them to get things moving?

Well, the service we got was somewhat on the minimal side of things. We didn't have to push for the test, they simply said it was necessary in order to determine if A. suffered from Asperger's or not.

Maybe having been referred by a neurologist helped, or maybe it's the team we met that made things simple, I don't know.

Until your son takes the test, I believe they have to be evasive since no one can be sure without it. So maybe you should ask for it.

Let us know how that goes.
