I just joined this the other day. I have twin boys that are 6.5 in kindergarten. My one son had a provisional neuropsych diagnosis of ADHD at 4.5 which was recently confirmed by his neurologist. I’m very fortunate in that he is on the low end of the spectrum. He was doing great in school and they took away his IEP. Recently, things have taken a turn and gone downward. I have called a meeting with the principal for the 9th of May. The neurologist said to wait until the first grade and if it really starts affecting him to do a low dose just during school.
I have no judgment for anyone whether their child uses no meds or 100 meds or at what age they started. I have very little problems with him at home and he is just a joy to be around. I’m actually having severe behavior issues with his twin, but that’s another story. However, he looses focus at school, blurts out things, and gets a case of “the sillies” that he can’t control. He is getting low self esteem and frustrated with his own behavior he can’t control
Has anyone’s child been able to get by with a low dose of medication just at school? It should also been mentioned that we had to move three times in the last 2 years and there was a divorce Him and his brother hate going to see their dad out of state So that may be a factor as well I’ve had them psychotherapy for that
Also, when did you tell your child that they had ADHD. He is very intelligent and understanding . I’m think it might help him to understand but I’m afraid it could also backfire.
Thank you for your time and consideration
