My son is 22 months old and I am a single mother. Every one keeps telling me that his has ADHD, because his actions are so bad. He runs and climbs inappropriately. Can anyone tell me a way to find out if he his ADHD!

Please don't assume your son has ADHD , your son is going thru incredible changes. I would strongly suggest having him evaluated by several doctors, pysch. I know you have probably heard this but being a single mom is stressful and exhausting. How does he act when not with you ? He can be taught what is good behaviour. Just please don't medicate without getting a lot of information. My daughter was 8 before we started meds, only because school was a huge struggle. If you want , you can email me, I can give you links to some websites that can give you loads of information. [email protected]

That's awful young to be concerned about ADHD. Hate to tell you but it could just be rebellious, spoiled , or just very active. I think alot of parents worry about their children and jump to the gun on diagnosis.
His doctor can evaluate better. He might just be an active child!

Your son is very young, and there should be no concern for that. You need to sit back, and look at what he is doing. If he is just running, and climbing he is just a kid. This is what you think not others. If he is doings something that will hurt himself or others, then you need to tell him that he needs a time out. If he is not iritating you then just let him be a kid. Kids have energy and they need to run it off. Take him to the park or even on a walk, especialy at the time of day that he is most active, and you want him to slow down. When you get back his energy level will slow down. If when your son is 5 or older and he still hasn't slowed down then look into ADHD.

That seems pretty little. My doctor would not diagnose until my son was in 1st grade. You can ask your doctor or see if they could suggest someone for you and your child to talk to. They do a lot of testing. Hang in there is will get better.
