How old was your child when he/she was diagnosed? What was the process- how long did it take to get the "official" diagnosis. Do you feel that your child has been misdiagnosed? Does he/she need to be medicated and is it helping. Were there any other issues (medical or psychological) that could trigger the symptoms?
My 6 year old has been diagnosed with ADHD/ADD about 2 months ago. Although I do feel like he has some trouble here and there as far as his behavior is concerned, I'm not sure he really has it though. Well the DR said he has a mild case of it. I did a lot of reading and researching and came to a conclusion ...that really....a lot of kids have these "symptoms" that my son exhibits.
I am not dismissing the cases when children really do have ADHD/ADD....Just not sure how to deal with this.
