My son has ADHD & is seeing a pschologist to have him assessed as we have concerns about his behaviour. At home he is very active & very defiant. At school or anywhere else he doesnt like to socialise with other kids. If my son doesnt get his own way he gets very emotional starts crying, calling names & hits. At soccer he accidently got hit with the ball, he yelled in the boys face & kicked him. This is the first time he has physically hurt another child.(I was horrified)But he does yell at them.He is not very social doesnt like mixing with other kids cannot play alone at home. Very fussy eater & he straightens things if messy. Gets frustrared very easily and pushes on my hand. I could go on! If anyone has a child similar would love to here from you or maybe some positive advice. Desperate mummy!

6yrs emotional meltdown

I could have written this post nearly word for word about my 4 year old son.
He has been "informally" diagnosed with ADHD and we are looking at getting him assessed for SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder).
We are having huge behavioural issues at home and at Kindy, no physical violence yet, though if, for example, his school friends are building something with blocks and they don't want to include him, he will knock whatever they are building down.
He is a very social child, makes friends easily and has advanced speech and general learning ability, he just cannot behave long enough or concentrate long enough to actually learn anything,
We have huge issues with discipline both at home and school, and we are very strict, so it's not a case of him getting away with bad behaviour. He doesn't eat much processed food, so diet probably isn't the issue.
We are pretty much at our wits end.

My son is extremely hard to handle at times & it looks like he has fallen into the Autism spectrum. Aspergers or social communication disorder + ADHD. I'm still on the Phychologist & Pediatrician cycle with trying to work out wait medications work. It will be worth it as long as my son concentrate long enough to learn I'm happy. Hope you get answrr for your son!
