Son with ADHD
Hi all, I'm new to the community group. Hoping someone has some advice for us. We have a 5yo boy who has been referred for Adhd. From the age of two his behaviour was always a lot more extreme than those around him. More recently in school he's been observed by specialists who believe he does have adhd. We are now awaiting an official assessment and diagnosis but this could take along time I've heard.
The last few month have been a particular struggle with his behaviour and more recently physical outbursts hitting people. We've tried all sorts to manage it from reward charts, behaviour plans to multi vitamin supplements (we'd been told it can help them focus) . He's now slowly being excluded from extra curricular activities which he loves as he is difficult to manage.
Can anyone suggest anything they've tried to help calm their children down a little or something that's helped them focus. It's upsetting seeing all the things he enjoys slowly being taken away from him. He's such a bright child and it's very clear he's remorseful for his actions when he calms down but he often tells us he can't help getting angry or not listening.
