My 5 1/2 year old was just diagnosed with ADHD the non hyper kind. He has always been strong willed and it's been the last 2 months in school that he has slipped behind in tasks and always complains that he can't remember anything. He is being punished at school by his teacher and with held from recess for not finishing assignments on time. He used to like school and now cries and doesn't want to go. I think the work is getting harder for him and the teacher more frustrated and it is wearing on him. The teacher has no compassion for him and refuses to believe he has ADD. She thinks the pediatrician gave the wrong diagnosis so we had him seen by a Pyscologist and will get results soon. Does it get better and once you got help for children, what worked for them. Drugs, Diet, Therapy....?

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
