I just got the "diagnosis" that my 4 year old son has ADHD. I say "diagnosis" because he is only 4 and the doctor only wanted it formalized so that he can continue with an IEP through kindergarten, but she does think he really has moderate ADHD. I thought of him as strong-willed, and doing #2 on the potty has been next to impossible for over a year, but I was surprised by the diagnosis. After talking to her, I now see the signs and agree with it.
Is there any advice anyone can give about having kids with ADHD? Is there anything besides meds that really make a difference? Should I worry about his chances at excelling in school? He tested average with the dr's IQ test, but she said she believes he's well above average. He is going to a special education preschool through our school district, and I have him currently in tennis camp, and in the fall he is signed up for soccer, and I will sign up for more tennis. (The dr said physical activities are really good for ADHD). Any good experiences out there? I'm so worried for him!
