at what age can your child be tested for adhd/add? And what are some signs that come with it? i've been reading different things about it. Im thinking my son could possibly be adhdAnswer Question
I had my son tested at the age of four (but was within a few months of turning 5). I would not go to his pediatrician though. It's best to go to a psychologist or a children's behavioral specialist.

I have no idea but you read my mind. I was coming back on to ask this. I think my SS has ADHD, this is a website I found below. My SS meets almost everyone of them.

Normally once the child starts school most doctors are comfortable diagnosing ADHD. The first thing the doctors will ask is everything okay at home and if any major life events have occurred recently. The behaviors in your last post seems more like attention seeking, but I would talk to pediatrician at your next appointment and in the mean time you can use the following test to evaluate whether or not he might have ADHD or something else. www.nichq.org/...adhd/03VanAssesScaleParent%20Infor.pdf
