My son just turned 8 years old in January. He has issues behaving at school. The majority of the time it is for talking in classor getting up hout of his seat. Lately he has been falling asleep in class (I send him to bed at 9 PM No TV in his room or anything) He does have days where he is fine. Others he is not. The problems are ONLY at sxhool. At home he is perfectly fine.
Now the teacher wants him tested for ADHD. I want his IQ tested because I feel he is bored. School has ALWAYS bored him. ALWAYS. He falls asleep in class yet he has been a consistant straight A student. He reads on a 5th grade level and love computers. Which way would you all go with this? IQ or ADHD? I will be talking with his pedi today.
