My 9 year old son was diagnosed by a child youth worker....not a Dr as having adhd and add. This after filling out those question forms....by me and the school. I admit I think he probably does have it but I have no idea. Anyhow, the cyw gave me an option to give him concerta (sp?).....however I didn't want to give him medication until I tried everything else.....here I am a year later and feel like I'm getting nowhere.....the school behaviour is the worst....all summer seemed to be fine....normal issues but nothing like it is now!! I feel bad for him....I dont know what to do.....someone help me...give me some guidance....I get no help from my Dr....and the help I do get takes forever....someone...anyone....I am desperate....thanks. I feel like once you chose not to medicate no one wants to take the time to help him.....is there anyone out there that doesn't medicate but deals????? Please help me help my son. Thank u for reading.
