I just helped mine take an online test through a health website and he hit 96! We do not really have the money to take him to a doctor but we are going to try. What are some of the challenges you face and how do you help him?
I would really appreciate any advice I could get!
My husband has ADD. He was diagnosed at the age of 12 by a psychologist. He has learned how to overcome certain things but occasionally, I will tell him his ADD is showing, lol. Honestly, though, if it is not affecting his work or home life, then I wouldn't worry about it too much. However, if he is not able to keep a job because of his performance then it might be worth going to the doctor for. As far as the challenges, I have to have our home very neat and organized. If something is out of place then it bothers him from being able to relax. There are many times that I have to get out of bed to completely shut a drawer so that he can read without being distracted. He does not have the hyper part though, so I don't know what to tell you on that. Good Luck!
