Name: Selena
Children(s) Name(s) and ages: Alex 10, William 8, Lukas due 11/4/12
Child(ren) with ADD/ADHD: Alex 10
Do they have ADD or ADHD or combinations type: ADHD. Alex has a lot of food aversions, had IUGR, was premature
At what age were they diagnosed:I should know this but it just seem like forever ago. I think he was 5 but we suspected it sooner
Do you or your childs father have ADD/ADHD: I think his father (my ex) has it but is undiagnosed.
What have you found that helps your child (wether it be meds, deep pressure, brushing, exercise, etc): meds are the only thing that have helped. I resisted meds for a long time
Something about you and anything else you would like to share:I am starting a 504/IEP process for Alex for the first time this school year and am really anxious about him starting 5th grade
