Im sure there are here and i hope im in the right place. My Ds (now 9) was diagnosed at 5 or so with ADHD. We tried behavior modification, change of diet, therapist, extra caricular activities nothing has worked. medicine is always our last resort. (im on bedrest due in a week so i wasnt able to go today) my ex husband (his dad) went to an appointment we made today to have him re evaluated because its been a few years and he isnt hyperactive. in no way shape or form so im not sure if hes somewhere on the spectrum or if its something else. They let him know after they do a test this thursday they will administer a low dose of medication and re test him each week to see if its working or needs to be changed.
my question is does anyone have good or bad advice with this method since we have tried everything else? im not sure if its adhd, or just a learning disability, a accumulation of we just moved and his dad isnt here yet so he hardly sees him, i have 2 other children and one on the way with my DH (been together 7years married 6) (only thing with that is because his dad has no other children so its just him and his dad so he gets super spoiled from his dad. Hardly rules, always buying things which isnt bad but doesnt go spend time with him if that makes sense. wont go for a bike ride, take him to a park, swimming or nothing.
half of me is hoping its just the age. thoughts?
