Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and ADHD
I have twin grandsons we are raising. They are FAS babies. (Fetal Alcohol syndrome) They have diagnosed both with ADHD. I feel this was done for lack of any other diagnosis. It is true that one of them, more so than the other has problems focusing and is very active. The one is not hyper or anything but lacks self control and needs focus for doing school work.
Both of the them can concentrate when it is specific thing they want to do, puzzles, building etc. They were on different meds since 4 yrs old and are currently on adderal along with tenex for one and adderal and abilify for the other. I hate them on these meds. One is much better since adjusting his dosage but he is still overly sensitive and not the hahppy child he once was. Since school is almost out, I would like to try an alternative natural program for the summer and see what effects it has. Can you help me with any alternative vitamins, supplements or whatever else I can do? Thank you
