I truly believe this should be diagnosed, it has come to my attention trough my 8yr old grandson. Now, because we can't get this diagnosis from a physician, the school is pushing for the ADHD diagnosis. If he has this diagnosis then the district will provide OT for him and other hands on support. But, thanks to a wonderful 2nd grade teacher he is surviving his school day undiagnosed.
It is had and would be easier if we just said OK ADHD is fine for him. Too bad folks, this caring MOM and DAD want to give him a chance to mature and grow before we have to pigeon hole him into a label for the convenience of obtaining services. Come on this is a real problem, get on with it and diagnosis this disorder.
