I wanted to introduce myself!

Hi everyone! First off I want to say this site is a life saver! My 5.5yr old son was finally diagnosed with ADHD by a Peds psychiatrist today. We’ve been seeing multiple counselors and therapists for almost a year now. We have been against medication until the aggression showed. For a couple months now other parents at his preschool have been complaining about him to his teacher. That broke my heart. He is the friendliest kid but so impulsive and socially is a 3-4 year old. Last week he hit his friend and gave him a bloody nose. Tomorrow we start meds! I’m hoping it helps! We will obviously continue therapy. We did the diet modification and that definitely helped but what we’ve heard from our therapists is all the counseling and controlling diet in the world probably won’t help the impulse control.

I look forward to bouncing all my questions off of everyone!
