After waiting for 4 months for the appointment, and getting him to the office, my son refused to do the neuropsych testing. Everyone thinks we should get it (school counselor, therapist, pediatrician), and I don't want to potentially throw medication at a problem when I could understand it better. Maybe it's not even ADHD.
SO, does anyone have advice for convincing a sometimes obstinate and anxious 12 year old to go through with testing? He has threatened to not answer questions honestly. But he has also expressed some regret that he wasted my time with the other appointment. I never know when those more understanding moods are going to come around.
