Before I adopt a child, is there a way to test a 2 year old for ADHD or other brain problems with a cat scan, mri, or any other way?

Before I adopt a child, is there a way to test a 2 year old for ADHD or other brain problems with a cat scan, mri, or any other way?

Probably not: Age 2 is far too young to be able to test for many of the disorders of concern to you, and scans are not going to help. Infant psychologists can estimate overall intelligence and functioning at this age, but that may be affected by the child's circumstances before adoption. They can pick up current problems but are not apt to be great at predicting future ones such as adhd. ...Read more

I did a test to see if I am  ADHD online. The test was positive. I suffer from anxiety and have alearning disability.

On-line tests = junk: Don't believe a test you took on line. You need to be evaluated by a licensed psychologist or physician for such a diagnosis. I also noticed that you are 48 years old. If you didn't have a history of ADHD as a child it is unlikely that you have one now. I hope that helps clear things up. :) ...Read more

Can a child grow out of adhd?

30-65% chance: Longitudinal studies lasting more than 20 years have shown that adhd resolves in about 35% of children. But if stimulant treatement is started before 7 yo, the risk of persisting into adulthood drops to 35%. In other words, if treatment is started early, instead of a 65% chance of still having adhd in adulthood, the risk drops to 35%. Good reason to treat early. ...Read more
