Hi, I am the mom of a 13 year old boy. He was diagnosed with ADD when he was in 3rd grade and started on medication for ADD. I have always had a little voice or something that told me there was something more to him that just ADD. After reading and researching could not figure it out. I asked the Neurologist and he dismissed it said it is just the ADD and inmature. I asked a frined that is a Dr. she diagnosed him with Asperger. I took this finding t Neuro. and he said no with out futher evaluations. Time has passed and now he is going into 8th and we have to change him from school. The school he is in now is small 8-10 group class with teacher and teachers aid. The next school only has smaller group classes till 7th and we don't know how well he will do in the 8th since it is a regular curriculum class. The new school has evaluated him and suggested that he be retained in 7th in their school in order for them to reinforce and tutor him to prepare him for 8th. My worry I guess is that he has very few friends and with the new school and regular classes he will be exposed to regular kids that will probably ignore him, make fun of him, be cruel to him, etc. I know I will not be able to protect him for ever but at this age it is so important for them to be accepted, that I am worried how this will affect him. So any help with suggestions, etc. is more than welcomed. And thank you for taking the time to read my post.
