My 4 almost 5 year old is having problems doing his work at school and problems paying attention to almost anything for any amount of time. For the most part we really do not have any behavior issues at this point but more issues with the paying attention and nervous energy and habits . I am at a loss of what to do , the school tells me its too early to have him evaluated and diagnosed, I have spoken with a clinic that is telling me the same thing then a friend of mine that is also a teacher but in a differnt school system is telling me to go ahead and have him checked out.
ANY SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE HELPFUL.

My pedi wants to wait until my son is in kindergarten for a few months. I don't want him to be on meds either. It worries me, I know that he needs help, but I don't want him to lose him in the meds. There should be something that will catch his attention. For example, my son has art. He loves to draw and color and make art, and he will do something for hours at a time. Also, it helps when my son can be physical. He was outside for 3 hours today and he was easier to handle. Try to come up with some things to help him be more physical to help get his energy out. Make sure you are always consistent. Keep him on a schedule. If these things don't help, he may need more help. Good luck.
