my 10 year son has been diagonised with adhd,conduct disorder,aniexty and speech and learning difficults.its been hard with each day as you never know what mood hes going to be in.ihave given up my job to give more time as we have alot of appointments coming up. but i dont regret this discision as hes in his last year of primary school this year so i want to get him being able to be more confident and build his self esteem up.hes such a good kid very caring but he is so worried about everything else going on. he has a big heart it breaks my heart seeing him trying to cope. it is also hard as you have to be careful with what you say and how you say it as he has outburst but i love him and going to be there to get my boy through these challanges he has coming up.we are lucky he sat a school who is very supporting.

  • What a wonderful story. I hope that your decision works out well for you both. More time with and around your children is hard work so please remember to look after yourself as you do everything you can for him!


  • A lot of children with ADHD, have behavioural issues and learning problems.
    If the truth be known your son is probably clever at doing things with his hands rather than doing subjects which involve exams etc. Does he communicate with other other adults and children? His symptoms are the same as a form of Autism. In USA they are assessed and start therapy by the age of 2 y.o., especially speech therapy. In the beginning it is only an hour or so twice a week. As the child gets a little older the types of therapy and the sessions are increased as is the number of days. If they are tired by lunch time they let them have a short sleep. A friend of mine is a nanny to one over there. Is your son going to a Special School? Does he talk in full sentences or say a few words and you decipher what the full sentence is?


  • There is a lot of help available nowadays. Lots of different learning and coping mechanisms. I wish you all the best on your journey


  • My eldest son has same problems and it’s hard but I learnt routines and hands on activities help and having things for him to do such as research on things he likes and him do a picture or story or building it stuff like that helps. I wish you your son and your family all the best and much love xx
