In Reply to: ADD 10 year old? posted by Russ on January 17, 2000 at 11:42:27:

: I left a message last week on Atend with no response, I will take that as a it has no credibility reply. We went to the pediatricion on Friday with out my son for a conference. The doctor read the Connors test from the teachers and my wife and I, he said it looked like my son probably has ADD. We have an appointment with the school phsycoligist next week. Our son in our eyes simply has problems in a couple of subjects at school, even the teachers notes say he is well mannered and a pleasure to have in class. It seems to us that you can pick any problem you are having with a child and find enough criteria for ADD. How do you really know? By the way our pediatrician told us he has ADD and all three of his kids have it as well, his kids all take ritlan and the oldest is 23 and in college.Thanks for any information

My son is also 10. He has been through the complete Dept of education testing program. The tests started in 1st grade but he was always "borderline Add". They did finally find, in fourth grade, that his verbal IQ was quite high in comparison to his visual. the verbal being 128 and the other 98. There have been educational modifications as well as changes in our home as far as dealing with our son. He is so easily frustrated and angered(crying when angry with siblings). He is a great kid..very articulate..sensitive..hes just my 'High Maintanence' kid. Good luck
