ADHD in Boys

Figuring out my son's issues
Keywords:


My son has behavioural issues and is implusive at school.
He is behind in learning.
Lately he has been showing his privates to girls twice. (attention?)
Cut a girls hair at school today…
& get’s frustrated at home and yells and acts up.
He is wearing glasses now, don’t know if it helps him at school.

Is this ADHD?

Trying to figure this all out.

TammyTT,

The only way to know if ADHD is responsible for these issues is to have him evaluated. There’s a great article over on ADDitudeMag.com called, Who can Diagnose ADHD?, that I think you will find helpful to start this process: http://www.additudemag.com/adhd-web/article/565.html.
