We hear it every day…
My kids’ medication doesn’t seem to work! Well, do you think that maybe, just maybe, your kid is being given a medication for something she/he doesn’t truly have? Maybe that’s why it is not working.
I “know” my kid has ADHD, but I don’t want him/her to take medication! How do you truly “know” that they have ADHD? What test(s) was/were used to determine this diagnosis? Also, how you know it’s not a combination of ADHD and Anxiety or ADHD and Depression?
Did you know that…
29% of children with ADHD have also been diagnosed with anxiety
19% of children with ADHD have also been diagnosed with depression
14%of children with ADHD have also been diagnosed with a sleep disorder
If you are only treating the ADHD (or maybe it’s not even ADHD) – What happens to a kid that is also struggling with depression or anxiety?
