Suspicion of child suffering with ADHD, always gets into fights, does not obey. What should be done?

My 4 year old nephew is always getting in trouble at school; hitting, name calling, not listening, and just being a bully. We think he has ADHD but he wont tell us why he is so mean, we try to have serious talks and stuff but we dont get any good responses. We just dont know what to do anymore his listening skills Are terrible and we are just battling EVERYDAY and it doesnt get better.

According to your history your child is having hyperactivity so consult your Pediatrician and he will examine and screen for ADHD and refer to child psychiatrist for the screening for ADHD for further required strategies to treat your child. There are screening questionnaire tools to screen for ADHD and they are done by experts.
