Pediatrician Dr. Santosh Kondekar's  Response
dear mr jaiswal. your child is suffering from a serious issue with long term follow ups. the disease has a wide spectrum so much that many normal adults have adhd. affection of speech, level of mental retardation, past history of any drug, and seizure or delayed development, all has impact on outcome and response to therapy. so give me a review of past response from point of therapist. i understand at times you may feel depressed or giving up but only persistent efforts from your side can give quality to life of child in coming years. thanks. write back if any further query.
