Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi there ,
Welcome to Just answer !
Has he started going to school , if yes , how is his behaviour with other children and is he slow in learning new things as compared to other children ?
Thanks for the reply..
Well, his attributes appear similar to the symptoms of Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ( ADHD ) , which usually starts at the age of 5-7 years , and is characterised by lack of focus , attention and concentration not only in studies , but in doing simple daily tasks , as a result of which the child ends up leaving all tasks unfinished .
Also, there is hyperactivity and easy disractability and frequent shifting of focus from one task to another , and this non-sustainability of focus , makes the child lag behind time .
Kindly see the link below for further understanding of ADHD..
So, i suggest that you need to rule out ADHD for your son through evaluation done by a seasoned child psychiatrist or child psychologist , because if he is not evaluated now ,then his ADHD , will become more aggravated and disrupting his normal daily activities .
So, i suggest that you get him evaluated by a child psychiatrist or child psychologist and once the diagnosis of ADHD is confirmed then the psychiatrist or psychologist will start him on psychotherapy , that s counseling in lay terms.
I hope this helps..
I wish you all th best..
