Hello to all here. My 8 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD/anxiety as well as dyslexia and severe dysgraphia. Working on advocating for him to get academic support in school. Wonderful boy at home; becomes easily enraged and engages in rituals at home that make any transition a nightmare (e.g. rolling clothes up into a ball on bunk bed; having to get dressed in exactly the right order...or else).
He goes to play therapy 2x a week and we are not medicating yet. My questions are:
1. What would you tell me about meds. because I am deeply concerned about giving any to him. He is sorely behind grade level but you could argue that is more his learning disabilities and not the ADHD or a potent combination of both.
2. Does 2x a week of play therapy sound like a lot? The stress of commuting twice a week is starting to wear on me on top of home/work/school life. How often do you take your child to therapy?
