Hello! My son was just diagnosed with ADD, about 2 months ago. We always knew this would be a possiblity.He is a very hyper child.He will be 9 in a couple weeks. We started noticing when he was in Kindergarten, that he was having issues with focus,and even sitting still, his teacher would tell me, he would just get up and wander around the classroom. At the time he was to young to be tested,or so they told us. Anyway long story short, they did some tests at the school, they said its a learning disability.He was put in an IEP program,and started speech and Occupational therapy,and also repeated kindergarten. Fast forward a couple years, he is not making the progress they wanted him to,i mean he has made some,but the focus has always been an issue,so at his last IEP meeting in Nov,it was suggested that i do this survey and see where he scores, i knew while doing this survey that,there is a chance he may score high enough and that would be that. My ex tells me that the same survey was given by at least 4 other people,and all had the same answers/results, so he was sent to a dr,for further evaluations.Another thing,my husband and I are seperated,he has the kids,how can i be involved in this, but be so far away? He is on Concerta,just a low dose.As far as i know its been working for him.He is doing much better in school.Now my ex seems to think our daughter (who will be 6 in about 3 weeks) also had add,and wants to get her tested as well,i think shes to young to rule it out.She is having the same focusing problems my son had.Any advice would be appreciated.
