Hi there.

I believe ADHD is more of a psychologic developmental condition though an organic neurologic cause (something anatomical) can also be considered.  The good news is, both of these conditions: absence seizure and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, may be outgrown by the time the child reaches puberty to early adulthood.  For now, medications should control the symptoms and psychosocial support can tame the manifestations of adhd as well.  Regards and God bless...

Make an appointment with a child psychologist. A Dr. can administer a test to find out whether your son has it or not. Unfortunately, their are many young and old that are incarcerated for their behavior and they didn't or were not givin a proper diagnosis of ADHD and they acted out impulsively and was held accountable for their actions. Their negative consequences could been prevented by being on the right medication. It's a sad disorder especially for those that go undiagnosed. Good luck to you and your son. Make and appt. to see a DR. today!
