I'm unable to change the font on my thread, unfortunately my eyesight ishorrible and I cant read this as i'm typing.
I would appreciate any input, I don't know what to think about this situation. My son's teacher has sent us a note that he's concerned thatmy little one is adhd. NOw, his teacher last year raised the same issue and we spoike to our FP (my dr since my teens) and she dismissed it as he is probably bored.
Now this teacher is raising the same concerns but with backed up information....ie...impulsive behaviour....low concentration..etc. My thinking is he's a typical 8year old boy---he would rather be out playing than sitting in a classroom listening to a teacher drone onabout math etc. But at the same time I don't want to be one of those parents that sticks their heads in the sand and ignores legitimate concerns. What do I do?? I have to be honest that I don't want to go my family and friends with this as they dismissed it last year. I don't feel they gave me (us) an objective response.
Where do I go from here? Part of my concern is his grade 2 teacher suggested he may be adhd and I worry that it's on his "record" and it will be used as an excuse when he doesn't perform as his teacher sees fit.. I'm at a complete loss.. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I hope thisis legible...as I've said my eyesight isn't the best and unfortunately shoving my face into the computer screen really isn't helping.
lookinkg forward to some insight
