My child is 8. At 4, it looked like he had trouble sitting and paying attention... At 5, he it was brought to my attention, almost immediately that he had signs/symptoms of ADHD, and would we consider more screening? He had the Connor Scale done, and further testing with a neuropsychologist, and it was suggested that he had ADHD..... Primarily Inattentive. He spent 2 years in kindergarten due to need for OT for handwriting Need I say he has some difficulty with social and emotional issues, but nothing major. He is on medication for ADHD--in school only, and has been since kindergarten. He is in a multi-age classroom (2nd year of 3) and is doing well, per his teacher.......I got a call from the school psychologist, who is doing his "3 year review" and she wants to meet to discuss Aspergers????? It won't change his services (practically non-existant at this point) he has speech- at this point he doesn't need, but i let them continue service, as he is working on social skills, which is integrated in.... No more OT--that was done at the end of last year... He doesn't need the consultant teacher on a regular basis )originally for supervision during academics for 1/2 hour-1 hour a day.. Now, 15 minutes monthly...... He's a well-adjusted only child with a great vocabulary. He has friends, and seems to be happy.
He may have some of the characteristics of aspergers, but not many.... WHY break a system that isn't broken?????
