Re: Learning Disabled and ADHD Child - Alternatives Needed
Get a psy-educational eval. The school should be able to do this for free if they follow the proper procedures and if you are willing to work with them. If you wish, you can speak to his/her Dr. and get a referral for a private psychological eval. This will give you specifics on ability (IQ), strengths and weaknesses. This should also shed some light on how much the attention difficulties are affecting school performance. THEN you will be in a more educated position to make decisions about whether to medicate, tutor, modify schoolwork, etc. It is a long road,. Don't get discouraged or angry at the bumps. There are no quick fixes. Just hang in there and support your child.
