Was your child incorrectly diagnosed with ADHD? Was your child given an ADHD diagnosis only to later find out that he/she had a different learning disability?

If so, you are invited to participate in a research study that looking at how an incorrect diagnosis of ADHD affects our children. The study consists of answering a series of questions regarding your experience and will be conducted in an online format. All communication will be done via email, so you never have to give out your personal information and you are welcome to stop participating at any time during the duration of the study.

The results of this study will not be published, but will be used for an undergraduate research project. Your participation is greatly appreciated, so please respond to the this post for further information.

Talk to her grandparents about helping her have an appetite by letting her have an hour before meal time without extra food. Apart from that, the more it bothers you, the bigger the problem will be for her. It's very hard, but relax. When you are finished eating, clear away her place, too. Make sure she gets enough to eat, even if it means a snack halfway between lunchtime and dinnertime. If kids go hungry for too long, they stop being hungry.


See if your parents would be willing to come with you so all of you could learn some techniques to help your daughter. If they will, find a therapist or a parenting class. If they won't, work with a social worker to help you move out. This is a bad situation for your daughter.
