Our DS2 was 5 and 6 at the time and it sure helped a lot!
    I am in Perth. I'll have a look on their website and see what I can find, and also book an appointment with the gp and talk to the OT when we see her next to get her suggestions too. Cover all bases

    hi, im sorry I don't remember the hubbers name, but there was someone back a while ago, similar problems and found cutting out all wheat / gluten from the childs diet fixed so many behaviour issues. It took about 5 weeks for the gluten to get out of the childs system, but the end result was simply amazing. I notice you said you limit sugar and preservatives and that is what reminded me of the gluten /wheat connection. might be worth a try also. marie..

    I don't know how much help I can be but my 4 DD sounds exactly the same. Have you read fed up by Sue denegate? Eye opening book. We are yet to try the full elimination diet but have cut out most preservatives and additives. My DD used to live on fruit but after learning about salisalites we cut her fruit intake to almost none and it helped a lot. I find that grapes and strawberries are the worst for her, she does mental. Anyway there is a website too with loads of info

    Sounds exactly like my son. It's exhausting so I completely understand your frustration. We tried everything and then some, including changes to diet, giving supplements, different management strategies the lot. In the end we went to see a Developmental Paediatrician and after an assessment etc he was diagnosed with ADHD. I actually felt better because I couldn't work out what we were doing wrong. Now, the quality of life for him and us is sooo much better because we are now able to manage him and he is happier and doing really well at kindy. So, my advice, go an see a Developmental Paed and go from there😀

    Hi, sorry I only just saw this comment. I'm halfway through the Sue Denegate book. I've cut out a lot of preservatives and additives with no result. I'll finish the book then will look into playing around with removing other foods. Id love to do the fail safe diet properly but it's too overwhelming! Maybe I should try cutting out the fruit, he eats at least a banana and handful of grapes daily.
    Thanks for tip!

    I have had the feeling for a while that he may have ADD or ADHD. My little brother has it and I think it can run in the family. Since writing my original post he has calmed down slightly. It's like he goes through stages where all of a sudden he is absolutely uncontrollable and crazy, then a few weeks later just as suddenly he is slightly calmer. So strange. He is still challenging but a little easier to deal with lately. I'll look into a developmental pead. Thanks!
