I'm new to the sight and have been reading posts - and it's awesome seeing all the great advice!
My son is 8 and was officially diagnosed last week. My brother has ADHD, so I am familiar with some of the symptoms which helped decide that was my son's issue -- I did more research and it confirmed it in my mind. So, I walked into the doctors appointment pretty sure, and his doctor was pretty sure after listening to my answers to his questions. He was just put on medication on Sat (which was a HARD decision to make!!) so we'll see if it starts helping him.
Unfortunately, my son also has oppositional behaviour, so, a therapy appointment is coming too.
It'll be great to hear about other parents tips on how to deal with some of the issues that come up.
