My son is in Kindergarten this year and his teacher thinks that he may have some attention issues. I truely do not believe that he has ADHD because he is not hyperactive. I teach kindergarten as well so I am well aware of what to look for when it comes to that. However, his teacher says that her son has some attention issues as well and they do "other things" to keep it under control that does not concern any medication. Does anyone have any idea what this means??
My son is very bright but I feel that he just isn't focusing as hard as he should on some things. I have noticed the same thing in sports. He just seems not to listen sometimes when he being showed something, almost like it doesn't interest him at all even if he says he likes whatever it is.
He is not a behavior problem at all and rarely gets into trouble but its almost like he is daydreaming. we have even gotten ears checked to make sure this wasn't a hearing prob

By "other things" she could mean changing his diet or using a behavior modification system. She could also mean herbal or homeopathic remedies.
