I have an 8 year old daughter that attends private school. She is a 2nd grader. She has an "A" average in her studies, but each year I have been asked by her teachers (1st grade too) if she has been "tested" for ADD. This year is no exception. She does lean toward the dramatic and doesn't always finish her papers. She is not hyper at all. I worry that she may be "labeled" incorrectly and have shyed away from any testing. If she does have ADD I want her to get help, but, I also don't want her to be put in a "box" of how everyone else does things. Has anyone been in this situation and can give me an opinion?
