Tremors/shaking hands when frustrated
Difficulty following directions
Difficulty staying focused
No short term memory
Difficulty following through with daily activities
If he makes a mistake on something they tell him how to fix it and he makes the same mistake.
He sometimes stands or kneels at his desk. He needs to be told to sit.
I guess sometimes when they are doing board work he looks like he is staring off into space.
He also has a hard time copying stuff from the board to his paper.
I have had a few of these same issues at home with him. He is going to be 7 in feb. he is very smart, reading way above grade level but he is extremely busy. It is hard to keep him focused especially when he gets frustrated.
Anyway, his teacher suggested we get him tested for ADHD. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this and if it sounded like he had symptoms of ADHD.
I am doing and have done my own research. I have also set an appt. with the dr. I was just hoping to get some of your opinions/experiences.
Thanks ladies. Hope you all have a great night.
