My easy child (or maybe difficult child) is 7. Background= He was removed from BM home at 10 months. She was arrested for manufacturing and did so in the home. Two older sisters were severly mentally, physically and sexually abused. Now both have been adopted by theraputic foster families. He came to live with us at 26 months. Was tested this year and found to have only 9% working auditory memory and 13% of working memory. He is a darling child. But sometimes does the most off the wall things. Ex. Poked a hole in our new leather kitchen chair with a juice straw, Cut holes in some of his clothes, tells stories(like telling neice that strangers are going to come get her). Last week he flushed the toilet at school while another kid was still using it, today he attempted to cut a childs hair (school was only in session 30 min. at that time). Mainstream teacher wants him tested for ADHD, Learning Disability (LD) teacher says his inattentivness and talking alot goes with the memory problem. We know mom did drugs before and after preg. We know sisters have ptds, Reactive Attachment Disorder (RAD), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), fetal alchol, adhd. Besides the disruptive/distructive things he does sometimes, he just talks constantly what to you guys think. Do we need to have him evaluated by a psychiatrist? Is this just a kid being a kid? I don't want to read to much into it!
