Dr.Kappler :

Thank you for choosing this website. My approach is mental health not mental illness. Allen understand that your son is having some difficulty with your grandson. If I understand the symptoms correctly he is very hyperactive and has difficulty sleeping. I assume you're concern is that he might have hyperactive form of attention deficit disorder. Here are some self test sites on the web to help determine whether or not you grandson is suffering from hyperactivity:

Dr.Kappler :

after your son has completed the status you have a much better idea of how hyperactive your grandson is. There are a few other additional questions that I would add. If your grandson extremely interested in certain things like video games to the exclusion of anything else? Does your grandson have difficulty getting to sleep or staying asleep?

Dr.Kappler :

I see that your currently off-line and I'm very interested in your response since this will help me making some suggestions. I've had 30 years experience dealing with attention deficit disorder and its treatment. I'm looking forward to your response
