How can I find out about the "brain scanning" technology for diagnosis of subforms of ADD in my area? My 11 year old daughter has been "sort of " diagnosed with "characteristics of individuals with ADD." My husband is dead set against medication- a more "objective" diagnosis based on a brain scan might convince him of her need for medication; the psychological assessment battery doesn't convince him. Meanwhile, my daughter continues to suffer and her self-esteem is going loer by the minute! Help! Also, she attends a private catholic school who gives her constant Saturday detentions because she forgets to have her tests signed and brought back to school. Most of the time the tests are grade A or B! She simply forgets either to bring it home, have it signed, or bring it back. Since the school is aware of her ADD- her memory is documented to be a problem- is it fair , or more importantly- detrimental to her self-esteem to continously "punish" her for what they call a violation of school rules? How should I address this situation? Thanks!
