: HELLO EVERYONE OUT THERE, WELL I GOT MY 10YEAR OLD DAUGHTER IEP TODAY AND IT SAID THEY FEE SHE MAY HAVE ATTENTION DISORDERS, WELL I, AM TOO SURPRISED, SHE SEEMS TO BE OK AT HOME BUT I DO KNOW THAT ONE OF HER BIGGEST PROBLEMS IN SCHOOL IS STAYING ON TASK AND LEAVING THE OTHER KIDS ALONE! I FEEL THAT IF SHE COULD STAY FOCUSED SHE WOULD DO MUCH BETTER (IN) SCHOOL. SO NOW HERE IS MY QUESTION: 1)HOW DO THEY TEST FOR ADD/ADHD? WHERE DO I START? 2) I, AM AFRAID OF PUTTING HER ON "DRUGS" THAT SCARES ME ALOT ARE THERE OTHER OPTIONS OUT THERE? 3) I GUESS I JUST NEED SOME HELP! IF ANYONE CAN POINT ME IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION OR OFFER THERE OPINIONS OR SUPPORT I WOULD APPRECIATE IT SO MUCH!
