I'm mot new here really, I am the Grandmother of a now 6 year old boy who has all the signs and symptoms of ADHD and possible Asperger's Syndrome. I have been searching reading a kids like this, parents of, with these conditions, I've tried reaching our to several organizations the provide therapy and completed a couple of assessments. I'm no where. I can't even get a Dr. to confirm his diagnosis. We didn't want to do prescription medicine because of the horror stories of being put on one medicine just to possibly having to try several other within months. I just saying he's only six, and would be a medication that could make him better or worst or dependent for the rest of his life.
The problem is he's out of focus in everything from Karate,, swimming lessons, and at school, and he just got suspended from school for fighting. This doesn't sound like him. He's plays well with other kids younger and older at our house and others. He's not able to return to school until we have a meeting with his teach and the special ed team.
I need real honest answers and advise! Where do we go for help?
