Parents of ADHD Children
How to start?
my son is always a bit off compared with other kids. So I long suspect he may have ADHD or High Functioning Autism. I did have him assessed by school district and his primary doctor when he was still in pre-school. But doctor told me he is too young for anything. School district told me he is too smart to qualify anything. So we have been “hang on” for a while. Now, he is in 1st grade. His grade is still very good ( above average in general ). He calms down a lot thanks for the supplements. He responses people very well. But his shout out or walk away from desk finally get his teacher attention. So I guess it is about time to start the assessment again.
I am open with supplement, therapy treatments. I like to have a full and in depth assessment include his IQ ( I suspect he is 2E kid ) ..etc before any decision is made by any doctor or psychologist. I don’t like a doctor to prescribed a pill before fully understand my son.
Where and how to start? Should my son to see a development and behavior pediatric? neuro pediatric? child pshy?
