Hope for children with severe ADHD and other behavioral and mental disorders.
This is my boy. He is energetic, funny, happy and full of life. He has a heart of gold and has a love like I have never seen. This is Jed (aka Jeddy). Jed suffers from severe ADHD and struggles with it everyday. His has it pretty severe and he bursts out in screams of joy, fun, craziness all the time to release some of that energy. Even as a little kid he was all over the place, he couldn't sit still, couldn't stop moving at any time, when he was sitting he would rock back and forth. When he went to school of course we started to get the calls.
It is hard for a parent but I can't imagine how hard it must be for him to try and be still for a full day of class. The principle called us in when he was in 1st grade they actually made him sign a legal paper because he was so disruptive in class. I was furious and he was devastated. She told us that we needed to get our son to the doctor and get him on medication and that there were lots of kids that were on it. I knew at that point the something else needed to be done.
