    You may be sick of ADHD articles if you’ve looked at them all day but one I found very interesting is

    Barb and HappyV,

    Thanks for the articles. I've always have doubts about ADHD. Sometimes people make fun of my daughter having ADHD, but they never mean it seriously. My daughter used to be emotionally very unstable, and I know I am highly responsible for this, partly our style of living and partly hereditary. I remember her having an extremely difficult time at school (being unattentive and emotional outbreaks) and at home (always crying and screaming) between 3 1/2 and 3 3/4 years old, and I was considering sending her to a full day nursery during the holidays. Yet suddenly came the cure, we took her to the playground for 5 consecutive days during Easter, and she was reported very calm and stable for 1 whole week at school and in the restaurants.

    Then when she failed her mid-term exams her teacher in class suggested her to repeat K1 and the principal made several suggestions of my daughter having problems not yet detected. Now she is in K2 and the principal says she's fine except for her phonological problems. LABELLING IS A HORRIBLE AND DISASTROUS THING. IT'S NO DIFFERENT FROM PUTTING YOU IN AN ASYLUM. WHAT'S WRONG WITH OUR SOCIETY TODAY IS LABELLING A PERSON TOO EARLY.

    Sorry about the heartache you're going through... I don't know whether homeopathy is the way to go, but you might like to write to Dr. Pandya at [email protected] to find out more about it. The doctor is specialized in pediatrics too.

    Sara.

    I cannot agree more. My son was initially diagnosed Mild Autism by a paediatrician who saw him for not more than 15 minutes. We were distraught and scared for more than 2 weeks until we saw the specialists (Speech and Occupation Therapist and Child Psychologist) who both told me that my son was only suffering from speech delay at 2 years old! Which was very common among boys living in an environment where he hears several languages!

    Read about the condition, observe your child and talk to specialists.
    Best advise i can give.

    Thanks for the articles. They definitely give me more insights, especially regarding the medication.

    Sara:
    Where is the clinic of Dr.Pandya? He's good? Is your son seeing him?

    Dr. Pandya

    ollyvia:

    I'm sorry I don't know where Dr. Pandya practices. I was just talking to a friend when she casually mentioned that her GP recommended that she contact Dr. Pandya if she needs more info. on homeopathy. I got the e-mail contact for you...

    Sara.
