My 12 yr. Old son falls asleep doing schoolwork, homework, and chores; but is alert when watching t.V. Or playing video games, is this adhd?
Maybe: Tv and video games are geared for a 4 second attention span. Most 2 year olds have longer attention spans than that. The 4 second attention span keeps your son alert via a neural reflex. It also lowers his attention span for the real world. Research states of those who watch 1 hour a day 9% will lower their attention span to add levels. 2 hours lowers 18% and 3 hrs 27%. Limit both to 45 min/day. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It is a complex diagnosis & requires that you discuss concerns with your pediatrician. Does your son make eye contact? How is speech? Just two questions that would be asked AND observed. What you described doesn't worry me BUT you are there and you are worried - talk to your doctor! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Learning disorder: my bro could only read/write with his teacher, could not recognize colors.He left school 8 yrs ago at age12.How can he be rehabbed?

Competence can be developed which can build self-confidence & a measure of independence. But he has a serious disability; cognitive development may not be the 1st priority. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Time and practice: Just like he practiced walking and didn't just stand up one day and run around, his brain has to practice memorizing. Try different ways of presenting information.
