Hey All, I'm a newbie here and I'm hoping I can get some advice. My son is about to be four next week. I've been noticing that things aren't quite right with him for about two years now. He is very very hyper. I didn't think a human being could have this much energy naturally!!! He never stops. He is very clumsy and is constantly bruised and banged up because it's like he runs and runs around with no direction and doesn't know how to stop. Constantly talking and can't concentrate on anything for more then a few minutes. Which is making things super difficult. I can't seem to potty train him because it's like he can't pay attention to his body signals. I can't even try to explain things to him because he doesn't pay attention to what I say. He always has to be moving. We are having trouble teaching him his ABCs and he can count up to ten but doesn't recognize numbers or colors. His head is always turning and looking around some times it seems like he can't control it and when I finally try to get him to focus on one thing or just to look me in the eyes he bursts into tears. I took him for a check up yesterday and the Dr. referred us to a developmental specialist because his motor skills aren't were they should be and she said he might have ADHD. He does some other odd stuff too like grabbing strings or shoelaces and waving them around and just watches them wiggle. He is constantly doing that. He is also very very destructive. I almost hate to get him new toys for fear he'll break them as soon as he gets them in his hands. It could be months before we get an appointment with the specialist and I was just wondering if anyone out their new some methods I could use to teach him basic things like colors and letters. Or how to make him use the potty. Or just any advice on how to get him to focus.
