My grandson's doctor diagnosed him with ADHD after looking at the questionaire from school and wanted to put him on meds. I am not comfortable with putting him on meds based on the answers to a few questions. What if they were wrong? What if he doesn't have ADHD? What if it is something else? What if he started meds and really did not need them. After all he is only 5 yrs old. The doctor gave us a referal to a clinic that does testing for ADHD and other LD. The problem is that it will be several months before he can even get an appointment they stay so booked up. By then he will be better or much worse. School could test but I wonder how vaid these test could be? Testing would be done by LD teachers. And since he is 5 what kind of testing can be done? I have to make this better for him and now not it months. By then what if the damage has been done and he becomes the "bad child" that they treat him like at school?
