Parents of ADHD Children
Not sure where to start-Possible Diagnosis
I am not sure where to start. Our son is amazing. He has always struggled with his handwriting (see an OT), but has always been a very sweet child. So much so that he has been student of the week multiple times….fast forward to late last fall and now. He has been to the principal’s office 2 times, yells at the teacher regarding finishing his work, easily distracted, tells us he hates school, the list could go on and on. When we work on homework at home it is a struggle, he is doing a thousand and one things. He can do the work but needs no distractions (even an eraser on the table can become a play object).
I have tried multiple “focus” vitamins, etc…nothing. I don’t understand what happened to my sweet boy. He now says he hates school, it is not fun, etc. My husband and I agree something has to be done. We completed a Conner Scale today and will see the pediatrician tomorrow. Has anyone else seen such a shift in their child once the school work increasingly got harder?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
