ADHD in Texas
How CAN a Psychologist help an ADHD? A recent one confused me.
My 5 year old son was diagnosed with adhd, and is extremely active in school. When I wanted an old therapist to see him (who saw him twice last year before to evaluate), she kept insisting that she couldn’t help him because she isn’t AT his school with him to help him cope with the sensory overload and stimulation. Everything he learns in her office will not benefit in another environment. I understand that, but now I wonder if she is dismissing ANYONE to help him.
I told her I didn’t want to try medication, at least not anytime soon. She told me if that was the case, he will always be overstimulated at his school and I would have to homeschool him. That worries me, because I agree with her, but she also made me more confused because if she can’t help him by “not being in the environment with him” then who can?
