Andrew's ADHD Page


Andrew

Andrew was born in 1991, he is my oldest child. He was diagnosed with ADHD when he was around 4-5 years old (give or take, I can't remember exactly). Andrew is a very sweet boy, but due to his ADHD and Autism (which is mentioned on another page), he is on medication to control his mostly unpredictable behavior. He had a very rough childhood because we didn't know what was wrong with him, just thought it was the terrible two's that didn't know the concept of phasing out when he got older than two. After his father and I divorced, custody of the kids were given to their aunt and uncle; both of whom have been very patient with Andrew (how they do it is beyond me, but I will be forever grateful to them for raising the kids (especially Andrew) so well.

I have included links on this page to ADHD sites that were either found by me or contributed by someone other than me (credit is given where it's due). If you have a related website that you would like for me to link to, please send me the URL in an email and I'll check it out. If I like it, I'll put it on this page and will give you proper credit.
