Rohan has other conditions, so his first diagnosis age 2 was for the Temporal Lobe Epilepsy but that diagnosis and subsequent therapies led to the diagnosis of his other conditions. He was later diagnosed with ADHD around the age of 4/5.
Location: Bossier City, Louisiana(missing Aviano, Italy)
I noticed when my daughter was 3 years old (I knew she would be due to her father's family history). They wouldn't diagnose her until she was school age, but then her kindergarten teacher refused to fill out the paperwork so we waited. In first grade we figured we finally had it under control and her teacher pushed her into getting diagnosed. I'm mad that she pushed it, but glad now because my daughter would get kicked out of school if she wasn't diagnosed.
I spent her kindergarten year meeting with the teacher/principle/guidance councilors because they couldn't understand why she didn't pay attention and was moody all the time (I told them abour the ADHD but they didn't listen).
Hi, my DS is almost 9 and we've known that something was different since he was a toddler. He wouldn't sit still. But I just assumed that he was just being an overactive boy. We didn't really think anything of it until he started grade 1 and was required to sit still and do his work. I got phone calls from his teacher on a regular basis about his behaviour. It took me a long time to find out how to help him, it's not that easy here in Canada.
He only just now got diagnosed by seeing a psychologist and doing a psychoeducational assessment, that the school is requesting in order to get help for him.
