In Reply to: ADD - mistaken diagnosis posted by sugarbear on May 29, 2000 at 20:46:12:
: I was wondering if there is any comparison for someone to see that shows the difference between lack of discipline and ADD. My girlfriend has a child that refuses to do his math, gets it all wrong and challenges her to do anything about it. I believe that is a discipline problem; she believes it is ADD. Any idea of a link that would prove or disprove me?????
Has this child been tested at a testing center for ADD? I personally don't feel a child should be given the diagnosis of ADD without proper testing to be sure that this is what it really is.
