I am at the end of my patience and rope. She refuses to take her add med and short of holding her and throwing it down her throat...and her mouth is beyond control, normal consequences are not helpful, her psych dr is not helpful(medicaid won't approve the patch), and due to the downsizing I can't find a therpist that gets it...stress can't begin how I am feeling today, and because of this particular adoption I am on zoloft...grrr....i am not coping well and I just saw my therapist yesterday which I got in order to learn to cope vs having a stroke or a heart attack
from fustration, anger and stress.

I am not an adoptive parent yet, but I do know a little about add. I am a martial arts instructor and I have taught several children with add,adhd and various other issues and the parents have been thrilled with the results. If you can contact a local martial arts school and ask them if they have any programs that they can offer you, and if they can offer a discount. Some instructors even offer free programs to children who they know can benefit. I should also mention, that I am an adoptee, and now a potential adoptive parent.
