My 6 year old daughter is very active. She just started Grade 1 and her teacher is noticing that she has a hard time sitting on the floor with the other students during lessons, yet she is reading and writing above where she should be. She has suggested that she may have ADD because she cant sit still for very long and is constantly talking.
I disagree with her since my daughter can happy sit and read for 30+ mins at a time, can write/draw/colour for long periods and can easily sit and watch a movie without any problems. If she had ADD she wouldn't be able to do these things. I have asked why she cant sit still during lessons and she has told me "because shes bored"...
I'm out of idea of how to deal with this and we are only in the 4th week of school this year.
She is in dance, swimming and Sparks (we are in Ontario) so she is used to structure. She only seems to be like this at school during certain times, at home she is a fairly good kid...
