Just like the title says, that is me. I have a 9 yr old son that has me at my wits end. He was evaluated last year by the school district psychologist for 2 weeks and she stated he was not ADD/ADHD. She says he is extremely bright and I should have him tested for GT. However, the school counselor says he has impulse controld issues. He is in a circle group with her and it seemed to be helping last year, but this year it isnt. It is barely 2 months into school and he already has 3 office referrals. His teacher makes notes of his behavior every day. I had a conference with her yesterday and she told me he yells out every day, but after he does, he realizes he shouldnt have done it and covers his mouth. He has a hard time completing his work at school and is failing 3 subjects. He does well if she is right beside him, but once she is walking around his mind wanders. He picks at students and tattles, but in turn gets tattled on for things he does. Many a day when I am up at the school I will have one of his classmates come up and tell me something he has done or said. When I do see him in the hallway, I make it a point to give him a high five and ask him how his day is going. Days will go by where he has no behavior problems and then other days it may be 4 days ina row he gets notes home. His teacher told me yesterday that he is very polite(yes ma'am, no ma'am, etc), but thinks he has to raise his voice to get her attention. When he does get in trouble for something, he will automatically deny it or suddenly forget what actually happened, but then as it is talked about to him, he will remember. I feel like he has been labled a liar at school because on one of his reports last year it was written....HE ALWAYS LIES.....it broke my heart. He has admitted that he denies because he knows he is going to get in trouble anyway. I have always told him it is better to tell the truth and that way people believe you. His teacher also told me that she has noticed that he often plays alone now at recess and doesnt like to work in groups because he doesnt think anyone wants to be around him. He is such a sweet kid and has a caring heart, but we are doing our best to get through this. I just want him to be happy and right now, I dont feel that he is. He loves to fix things, draw, video games, etc, but at school and at home he can flip like a switch and 5 minutes be fine again. I have looked up symptoms of ADD, ODD and many others, but everything has so many symptoms and so much the same, I am lost. He has an appointment on the 17th to go for a check up and I am going to take his referrals, letters from teachers, etc with me and find out what is going on. Anyone have any insight??
