I think I'm very glad I found you all!! I am in the early stages of this process. My son is 8 years old and such a beautiful boy. We have had trouble with his behavior in school from day 1 (since pre-school), but this year, third grade, is the worst so far. When I say the worst I don't that mean he's bullying people or mean-spirited in any way. We've started bringing him to a psychologist who had us and the teacher fill out these questionnaires called "Conners" something or other, and when she scored them, the results were as she put it "highly indicitave" of ADHD and ODD. Since then I've been reading up on these two disorders and I realize they fit my son almost to the letter. So now we are navigating the psychologist process AND the in-school process, since school seems to be where the symptoms are most pervasive. It doesn't help that he HATES SCHOOL and will tell anyone who will listen in great detail how school is like torture and he'd rather be anywhere else. I feel defeated at this point, but have resolved myself to do whatever it takes to give him every opportunity to excel. I don't have any specific questions, rather just hoping for some success stories and words of hope! Thank you for listening.
