    Hi Concerned Parent. Welcome.

    Who, exactly, determined that your son is odd/add? Many of us started, me included, with that diagnoses only to find that is only the tip of the iceberg.
  3. my caseworker at first said he had odd and then i ended takin him to the child pycholigist in town and he confirmed it and then said in feb that he has add based on what i have said and what his teacher this year says. last year in kindergarden my son was a bully he got suspended several times and almost got expelled. this year hes hit n punched n thrown kid down in snow but mainly its the stealin that is buggin me. i have talked to him and so have other ppl. i really dont to see my 6 yr old on house arrest or probatoin.
