My seven year old son is a day dreamer. He is highly distracted and even eating meals is a chore for him. He is at the table at least 1/2 hour after everyone else is finished. Many times we catch him just holding is fork and daydreaming. He is in Grade 2 and is not doing well. He is definitely not at the level he should be. He finds school boring and is extremely hard for the teacher to motivate. I just had a meeting with his teacher and the school counsellor the other day. They recommended that I take him to the family doctor to get a referral to a Pediatrician so he can be assessed. We have an appointment this week. It takes so long to get into see a Pediatrician. For those of you with ADD children, does this sound like your child? My son is not hyperactive. He is very mild mannered and a very pleasing child. I think that he has low self-esteem as well which I contribute to his poor academics. It must be tough to be that far behind the rest of your class. It is affecting his social skills as well. Help! I feel heartbroken and helpless right now until I see the Pediatrician. Any words of wisdom will help.
