  1. Thank you for this podcast (and whoever suggested this topic)!

    I was a gifted student and several ADHD symptoms and gifted symptoms overlap. I don’t think I would be diagnosed with ADHD but hearing this discussion makes me wonder if my husband isn’t. He’s notorious with the can’t put dishes away where they belong even though we’ve lived in the same house for 7 years. He also forgets things all the time. And now my son, who I know is very smart, has been having troubles talking/laughing too much at school. Which I had a bit in elementary school, so I’m not convinced he might be ADD but he does hyper focus to the point where we have to get in front of him or take away whatever he is focused on and I can’t help but wonder if there is something going on there. It’s good to hear other people’s experiences. My almost 3 year old is a non-stop talker and can often forget what she’s doing in the middle of doing it.

    Maybe I need to get my kids and husband in to see an ADD specialist with me so we can talk about these things.

    And oh, routines! When the morning routine changes my daughter has a real hard time at daycare drop off. And my husband! Ugh! Yeah. Maybe we need to talk to somebody.

    • Well the good news is that evaluations are fairly pain and hassle low (depending on how cooperative the teachers are). Good luck!!

        Talking to your physician is a good start. That’s where we started: He gave us a referral to a diagnostician. For the kids, she sat and talked with us and talked with the kids to get an idea what was going on. She also had their teachers fill out long evaluation forms, and with my son she went and observed him at school.
