Is there a resource any of you are aware of that I could refer to for behaviors? I have a three-almost 4 yr old that is really active--in a sense. They are very impulsive, sensitive, love toys that make noise (more than others), can't seem to sit still--ever. Very sweet little one, but at the same time ends up hurting someone (i.e. a toy is thrown and someone intercepts it so-to-speak). It's been going on for over a year and a half. Hasn't grown out of the phase. I have taken proactive approaches and the parent's and I have been working together on the issue. It's not a term ordeal, just wanted to get some ideas as to what might be going on and how else to work with them.

I have a dck like that. Unfortunately I do not have suggestions. Just wanted to say I hear ya!

Most frustrating part for me is that she/he can not follow a 1 step direction without being told more than 1 time (which is non typical for that age). Can not track to complete any task ever!

I do have to repeat a lot. I usually give 1 step directions and need to repeat that a bunch as well as keep on their toes to complete the task. Good to know I'm not alone

Here is a synopsis of ADHD but doctors will rarely diagnose a 3 year old. Go to the latter pages of this link and it has suggestions for dealing with it.

Thank you. I'll push more excersize for this one. think it is hyperactivity/attention stuff. I know dr.s won't diagnos and I wouldn't ask them too.
