Just wondered if anyone could give me some advice. My GS aged 5 has been at school for over a year now (he is a July birthday). First year passed without incident. This term DD has been called in to see the head teacher regarding his behaviour. They are querying ADHD. A Ed.psych. has been in to assess him and DD has also consulted a paediatrician who had been looking after GS for a problem with wetting. This paediatrician is also the lead for ADHD in the county. He has seen him briefly privately when he said everybody has a touch of ADHD but he would see him in his NHS clinic for a full assessment in due course.
DD and SIL are obviously very concerned parents. I have always found GS to be a typical boy but dont recognise the child they describe at school.
Just wondered if there is anybody who perhaps can give me some insight into the condition and are there varying degrees of it. If so, how is it handled by the school. As far as I am concerned he has always been relatively well behaved, can sit for periods of time when playing with his lego, watching TV etc and is not easily distracted but this just not appear to be how he is when at school.
DD and SIL have an appointment with the head teacher on Tuesday morning. Do so hope it will be good news. Any advice on the condition would be greatly appreciated.
