Sample text

30 Fisher The ADHD combined subtype whether present in children, adolescents or adults, from my perspective is clearly a different breed and more often than not, represents some type of insult or impact upon brain functioning. In this group are your undiagnosed or diagnosed and forgotten, traumatic brain injuries. More often than would be expected, parents forget that their child has encountered a serious illness involving hospitalization and desaturation (loss of oxygen) or a significant injury to the brain resulting from an auto accident, fall or some type of trauma.

As the focus remains on attention issues, no one considers the question of a brain injury as a possible diagnostic reason for the behavior problems that are abundant and run rampant in the ADHD combined subtype. ADD is the reason given for the child’s total learning problems, which may include not remembering what they have learned (memory in ADD is not problematic and instead provides one of the two coping mechanisms used to battle attention symptoms), missing key learning from building block grades, or becoming totally confused in advanced classes that use constructs reliant upon earlier learning.

If anxious, the person becomes more impulsive and cannot wait his or her turn. The more worry the more impulsivity and a lessened ability to wait and be patient. Anxiety and distractibility are closely related; the more anxiety the more distracted the person becomes. It is well-known that stress and distractibility are often seen together and increase or exacerbate one another. People tend to talk to themselves to calm down or to attempt to contain the distractibility, or they hum tunes to themselves.
