Is It ADHD?

Meeting with Peds today. What should I do?
Keywords:


I have a meeting with my sons doctor. I am not sure what to say and what not to say. I am not sure what to bring either. I am very worried about him. He is only 5 and its the 4th week of school but he has already been sent to the office and had the administration come to his class to “help” him.

Just explain to him what is going on and what has you concerned. If he doesn’t offer a referral for evaluation of behavioral and developmental disorders, ask for one.
