Doctor:Please proceed with your query.
User:one question for my child
User:he had adhd problems earlier which get subsided
User:he was provided arcamine 1/4 per day to reduce energy level
User:and continued this for around 2 years
Doctor:May I know your child's age please?
User:6 years 4 months
User:currently the worst problem is page tearing which he has picked from school
User:for which there are lots from complains from school wrt him tearing pages of other students too
Doctor:Is he still taking the medicine?
User:this is compounded by his telling frequent lies
User:yes he is taking this now too
User:same doze
User:although we do not phisically hurt him as advised by his councillor
User:we are tired of going to school to hear the complains of his page tearing repeatedly
User:how can we get rid of this ??
Doctor:I think, the counseling sessions will help him.
Doctor:You need to have lot of patience as a parent to treat this disorder.
User:we have done counselling from maipal and columnbia asia to no effecty
User:they provide high doze medicines which i didnt allow my son to take
User:for 3 years we tried to be patient to the maximum
User:but his school is so impatient they cannot treat or keep such students
User:and this is a problem with many international schools in bangalore
User:that they dont even provide a solution but let parents hear all sorts of problems
User:we are getting cick and tired of this
User:acamedically my son his good but his behaviour problems and page tearing is not pardonable in school
User:i dont know how many schools i have to change for this
Doctor:I can understand your problem.
Doctor:Better alternative would be to put him to special school which has special trained teachers to take care.
User:do you know any such school in bangalore ?
User:we have already put him under councelling which we are continuing but the councellors tell there is no problem with his academics
User:but for schools and his page tearing problems councellors say that schools are all impatient
Doctor:That will not be for his academics.
User:so what is the way out for me
Doctor:They will take care of behavioural problems.
User:behavioural problems are picked from school itself here where teacher teach to tear pages to make planes and shapes
User:from here itself the child picks it up
Doctor:But, every child will not get that habit.
Doctor:I think it is part of his ADHD.
User:yes others understand where not to tear but as for my child once he gets to the habit even though we teach where not to tear still be does the same
User:can u suggest me someone who can ensure this problem will not recur in my child ?
User:in other words in bangalore which school takes care of such issues ?
User:what is the step i need to take ?
Doctor:I think your consellor will be the right person to guide you on that.
User:so suggested a higher course of medicine which er are reluctant to provide
User:medicine is not the solution for this for sure
Doctor:Medicines may support. But it is not the mainstay of treatment.
User:so can u suggest someone better who can handle and change my child in bangalore ?
Doctor:One centre in Malleshwarm "Child development centre" by Dr. XXXXXXX Mundkar may be of your help.
