My Son is 3.7 years and is very hyperactive. It doesnt mean he doesnt sit at one place. He does when given his favorite toy. He loves cooking and enjoys it for more than 1 hour. He also loves painting. My only worry is he speaks less rather speaks only when he is in good mood. I had visited some counselors who said he might have very minimal effect of ADHD. However, I am in a dilemma to agree to them. As you mentioned, all kids who are hyperactive are not having ADHD. This sentence gave me a little hope that my son might be just hyperactive and not ADHD kid.
I did an rough assessment on how his vocabulary. He is receptive to around 70 words and expressive to around 120 words. He sings rhymes but words are not clear. He knows around 25 rhymes and sings them. But only I can understand. He knows that I am Mom but calls me Mom only when he is in good mood. He mostly uses sign language to communicate. For e.g: to Open a Door, he pulls me near the door and then pulls my hand towards the latch. This means I should open the door.
This made me to think that he is lagging somewhere. Being a working women and nuclear family, I feel this might have effected him.
I would like to hear your opinion. I read most of your comments on ADHD kids and feel that you can give me some kind of suggestion.
Eagerly Waiting for your Reply.

Hai all I just joined thisthe group after browsing a lot in the net. First of all felt happy to see many sailing in the same boat as I do. Secondly painful to see our kids suffering a lot under the term ADHD. God knows all as he created them with such apcl needs. I have a son of 12 yrs he was diagnised ADHD when he was in his class 1. I started giving him Ritalin after consulting peadtric psychologist. Gave him few occupational theraphy too. We were in Dubai for 8 years and I continuef the, medicine and he was in normal school with lots f complaints of behavioural issues and academics learning disabilities. Now for the past two uears we have shifted to Kuwait an useless country where I dont find any betr medical help for my son xcpet the concerta medicine. He s in class 6 now in athe regular CBSE school. I feel t s a torture for the child with lots f pressure to cope up with the curriculum. The spcl schools here r very costly that an indian patent couldn't afford. I am a teacher in the same school where my son studies and thus gets certain things done for him. I have a minimum of 5 ADHD and Autism children mixed in each of our calsses in our school. My query s I dont want to continue any more with the CBSE torture for my son. I would like to settle in India only for the sake f my son. Now I am pregnant 9months and every day it s a tension dealing with my son's behaviour issue right from morning till night I need the advise of where should I shift in India to put my son in a gud school which cd give him simple curriculum with treatment inclusive. Pls help me to decide.
Try Aurinko Academy in Bangalore. Go to their Facebook page or website and send a message to the found Ms. Chetana Keni. All the best!
Middle east is wrost place for kids with special needs. As you mentioned you are willing to shift in India then you can try Deens Academy in Bangalore. They have a special unit for child with special needs and run by Endeavor Learning Services. You may not find any therapists like speech or ABA there. It is more like school and kids can choose their subjects and have an option to give exam (Class X or XII) CBSE or NIOS. Endeavour is also associated with DPS, Bangalore. I hope, this information will help you. All the best.
Have seen your post, just curious if you managed in finding any school for your 12 yr old son?, we are in a similar situation and yet looking for a good school with boarding facility, have heard of one in Coimbatore. please let me know what options you have.
Thanx for ur response. We didnt shift yet one more year to go so that we can get some tym to find the right school. Heard that there are some in chennai too.
The problem is CBSE sullabus doesnt fit auch kind f children. My son is detained this year in the same class and next year we wil shift toin india.
