Hi all. My son is in prep, he's 5.5. We've always had trouble with his behaviour around other kids. He just can't keep his hands to himself, wether it's an attention seeking poke, to snatching, to being the class clown. He's being labeled the naughty boy at school.
The paed and psych seem to think (based on their assessments) that it might be ADHD and to try meds.
The OT wrote this up based on a full assessment. The paed saw it and underlined a few points, but I don't know if this report suggests ADHD too or something else going on...???
Im so confused.
Ive blanked out my sons name.
I would love for others to read this and see if an ADHD child would show these characteristic too I guess!
Ps- the OT said he does focus on the tasks well during therapy and he works well if one-on-one with another adult/aide in class.

Confused about sons diagnoses.

In my opinion it indicates he has sensory issues that are very common in children with adhd.
My child with aspergers also shows some of those.
I would be asking for more testing in regards to adhd.

Not all ADHD kids have the same behaviours.
The report does seem to be leaning towards an ADD/ADHD diagnosis though.
How are you feeling?
What will a diagnosis mean for your family?

I just want my son to be more settled in the classroom and yard. I want the kids around him to feel safe around him.
At the moment they avoid playing with him. That breaks my heart.
Anything sets him off and he becomes soooo silly.
I will talk to the psychologist this week and ask more questions.
The paed did mention trying medication (like Ritalin) and if it works, then we could say it is ADHD, but if it doesn't work, then it's not (or something along those lines).
I will continue to see the OT to help with the sensory side of things.

Sorry I don't have advice. Just hugs because I'm going through something similar with my boy. It's tough.
