Parents of ADHD Children
My 10 year old son had ADHD and is on medication. Also, after his most recent neuropsych evaluation, it was determined that he has a fairly low IQ, around 78, which is borderline. The doctor said he performs appropriately for his cognitive ability, which means he doesn’t necessarily have a learning disability, he just is a slow learner.
I am having a lot of difficulty understanding what low cognition is; what can be worked on, what I can expect from him, etc.
Does anyone have any ideas on where I can find information on this or what types of agencies are knowledgeable about this topic? tx
