    16 year old son with ADHD

    My son is an awesome soccer player. He was scouted to play soccer in Spain while finishing his last year of high school in an online program.

    How can I get off my meds?

    Hello, I’m 17, and was diagnosed with ADHD as a child. As such, I’ve been on meds for the past 10 or so years.

    For anyone: adult, teen, or child, who just needs some comfort.

    If you're reading this and you have ADHD, I'm sorry for the long speech. I always skip around if I have a lengthy read ahead of me, and you all probably aren't much different. I tried to space it out a bit, and reading it myself, the space helped a little bit. :D I was diagnosed with severe ADHD at 5 years old. My mother always believed it was some type of "stigma" and wouldn't tell any of my teachers when I was a kid. She just recognized it once every three months, when....

    Adhd vs. Autism

    I think this broad spectrum is too much. Look up the symptoms yourself and it needs to be defined. My son has ADHD and it is clear but they say he could have mild autism and thus couldn’t diffidently say he has that too when got evaluated my a well known psychologist . This broad spectrum is wrong and anyone can have signs of this. My child is not a project and shows little signs of this but definitely ADHD and I was diagnosed in the early 80’s with add which they didn’t have the adhd or combined....
