Parents of ADHD Preteens
Have been going the natural route-May need meds?
I have tried many non med options (herbal, very restricted diet, Speech OT, tutor) and have seen good results. But over the last couple months I have watched my DD anxiety increase. It seems she is overwhelmed by new situations and she is very excitable. She is also isolating herself in school, I believe it is just easier for her to not interact so she chooses not to. I am exploring the SID (social integration) angle right n ow and will be getting her a therapist. Academically she is doing really well. So I was just thinking gosh am I doing the right thing by not using meds? Could I be making her life more difficult? Feeling guilt I guess….
