My four year old daughter never stops. From the time she wakes until the time she goes to bed, constantly running and changing from one activity to another, nothing seems to keep her attention for very long. Is she just a normal four year old, or is it something I should consult her doctor about?Answer Question

My son was diagnosed at the age of 4. I had pretty much known that he had it at about the age of 2. I was going to wait until he went to school but his implusiveness got so bad that I feared for his safety. Right now, we are using a combination of medicine, diet, and play therapy to help him learn to cope with this disorder. Like the pp said, take your child to a developmental peditrican/psychologist. There will be forms to fill out, observations that will need to be made, etc. Does she go to a preschool? If so ask the teachers there what they think about your daughter's behavior. The teacher's will have to fill out a form as well. In order to be diagnosed the behavior has to been shown in more that one place (school, home, etc) Good Luck!

This can be diagnosed prior to school. Learning Disabilities can't be diagnosed prior to school as many children perform LD types of things as their neuro-muscular (nervous system and muscle development) selves are developing.
