Hello all!

I am a mom to two boys ages 8 and 11.

8 year old is diagnosed as ADD and has recently gotten an IEP at school.  Do have him on meds but REALLY REALLY want him off of them!

11 year old was shaken as a baby by his babysitter and spent 6 days in the PICU.  He was tested last year and this year for learning disabilities and also has an IEP.  Dr. says he shows signs of ADD but it is really hard to tell if it is that or from the damage done to his brain.  He has no other physical or mental problems and by the grace of God is basically a normal boy!  Had him on meds but couldn't see any difference after a full month so I took him off of them.

Looking forward to talking to other moms about our kids!

First of all-

welcome

I don't have any experience with ADD or IEPs but I hope someone can offer you some advice.
