finally got a diagnosis :(

We have finally got an ADHD diagnosis. I am sad and releaved at the same time. at least we know what we are dealing with now. The school will now be a little more understanding and will give him more time on tests. we have desided for now not to medicate. he is seeing a psycologist for the behavior modification and we are hopeing this helps. We would like to not have to medicate unless absolutly nessesary. he was diagnosed a week ago so we are going to give it some time before desiding weather we need to medicate.

Blaine is 7 and in the 2nd grade and he has a great teacher who is working with use to best help Blaine

Re: finally got a diagnosis :(

Having a diagnosis actually relieved us as we finally felt we had a direction to go with our son. What type of behavioural modification are you doing? We continue to debate whether it is doing anything for our son--also 7yrs and 2nd grade. Ours was mostly based on anxiety and impulse issues and he has improved but I'm not convinced it had anything to do with the therapy since he refuses to use any of the tools they taught him but more likely the medication he is taking.

I'm not a parent and while I sympathize with your situation with your child, what about you? Is your signature line correct? I know that ADHD is highly heritable, so my question is, have you or your spouse been diagnosed and are either or both of you receiving care for ADHD?

I ask because it could be helpful to your child.
