They usually do not diagnose this until 7 or 8 years old. And then it's best to get a neuropsychiatric evaluation.

Isn't that a little young to diagnose? My granddaughter is five. They wanted to have her checked during kindergarten this past year. But she is too young as far as I am concerned. We are waiting. There is, however, a big line of stuff you would have to get done in order to make a diagnose. Hope that helps.

I was diagnosed ADHD at 4 so I know where you are coming from. My 3 yr old behaves exactly as I did at that age. We tried removing food dyes from her diet and it has made a WORLD of difference.
