My 5 year old's kindergarten teacher is concerned about him. She has been worried that he doesn't concentrate very well.. and that he likes to get out of his seat a LOT during work time.. So she asked if she could fill out a checklist for him.. and see what we needed to work on.. I said ok.
Well the check list came home today - and it says the he has many behaviors that indicate that he may be A.D.D. .. inattention, impulsivity, hyperactivty and anger control.
While he may show these signs at school.. he seems to do fine with routine and structure at home.. very little problems.
How would I know if he actually had A.D.D. and why only at school..
What should I REALLY be looking at ??
I do appreciate the fact that she is concerned. And that she has 18 other students that she needs to teach. I just don't want my kid labeled as ADD if it's just the fact that he needs more one on one.. or is that what ADD is ?? HELP.
