What are some possible other kind of treatments? My sister has two children with ADHD and possible a third one. I have seen her children with medicine and without medicine. When her children are off the medicine they act up and can not sit still for any period of time. Thanks for the help.
My brother has gone to 3 evaluations (all of which have lasted no more than a half hour) and has been diagnosed with a minor, minor case of autism. I really don’t think this is enough time to get to know a child and make a proper diagnosis.
I am wondering what works for others as far as behavior strategies, systems, plans etc. My son is six years old with several diagnoses including adhd, bipolar, and high functioning autism. His behavior is a major issue. We have tried time outs, reward systems where he got stickers and then a reward at the end of the week or day, 123 magic, and more with no success. Any ideas?

I have a six year old, and I am trying to figure out what the best medication is to give her for ADHD. This is my first time dealing with this, and I would like people’s opinions.
I just want you all to know that I DID first take her to the doctor. I have done my own research on the meds as he doctor suggested, and I just wanted opinions from people with experience in this area.
