After years of suspecting that my 6 year old may have "something going on," today it was finally confirmed. He was part of an ADHD study and the feedback concluded that he falls slightly beneath inattentive ADD and hyperactivity ADHD, on the cusp. We live in NYC and he will be eligible for a 504 plan when we have our initial appointment with his teacher, guidance counselor and school psychologist and share his assessment results. There are more pressing issues going on in the world so I feel grateful that his assessment was completed before the city shut down. I completly accept that he might not have his 504 plan in place for the start of 2nd grade, but since we waited so long to be part of this study, almost a year, I feel a bit sad and frustarted that he will likely enter 2nd grade without his 504 in place. Just kind of processing the feelings since this is all so new.
Sigh anyway, I feel lucky to be part of this community. You've all been so helpful and caring up until now. I just feel overwhelmed by the situation so I was wondering if any of you can refer a book or article to me that explains how a young ADHD mind works. I've read some information about it, but I think I need a solid foundation.
