He has been tested several times and it is never conclusive. I am not comfortable with just putting him on a medicine just to see if it works. He definitely has anxiety and too much noise gets him worked up and those diagnoses are conclusive, just not the ADHD part. (My little girl has sensitivity to noise as well). He has some traits some of time but not others. He is always disorganized and homework is always a nightmare though. He is 14 and at 12 he had a 12th grade reading level. He picks up music by ear and so far has taught himself to use every instrument he has picked up. He can be quite good at sports as well. Public school is trying but it has not been working for him. He just gets one teacher that clashes with him and it ruins all the rest. Also his father was diagnosed with ADHD and recently my doctor suggested it as a possibility for me. I have bad disorganization and memory. What have been your experiences with the diagnoses process?
