Brenda, thanks for your response. My suggestion would be to have a private evaluation done by an impartial third party. I was told, at the age of seven, that my son was too young for an accurate test. He ended up having a processing problem, not ADD. I wish there had been a pill for that. As it is, he stuggles as a young adult. He was never a behavior problem, though. I just would not trust the school to have my child's best interest in mind. Individual teachers, sometimes, but not always.
Brenda, ADD is a neurological disorder. They will be suggesting medication, don't worry about that. I've seen all aspects of this sort of thing, not the least of which from the standpoint of a parent. They may feel he is getting a firm hand, but he is a headstrong boy. I don't buy it for a moment.
