Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder "ADHD" Clinical Vignette "I don't believe in medications for children and I don't feel comfortable seeing a Child Psychiatrist for my child, as far as I am concerned ADHD is over diagnosed in the Black community and everyone wants to medicate our kids. However, I don't know what to do with my child; he is 8 years old and simply can't stay still. He has already had to repeat the first grade and is in danger of having to repeat the second grade, too; all of this despite being a bright child. He doesn't have many friends and I am constantly being called into his school for his behavior. At home he is like a tornado, I know that boys will be boys, but I am at my wits end with this child."
