I need some help! my son is 6 and in the first grade. he can read on a 2nd grade level and is good at speeling and writing. The problem is that he can not concentrate in class. He starts and assginment and takes half the day to finish it. He then becomes fidgety and cant sit still. wer are only in the 3rd week of school and his teacher is frustrated with him. I have taken him to the doctor and he says wants me to work close with the teacher and lets see before making a diagnosis.. I know he sunds like classic case of ADD or adhd. But I dont want to do meds, and he is already faling the test they give him. Not to mention he is getting on the Teachers nerves. what do I do?

Oh I have met with the teacher and the principal as well on yesterday to try some new things. I think she is willing to work with him, she just knows how smart he is and expects him to do better. SHe said she cannnot hand hold him , she has 29 students to deal with and she said she was not trying to be mean, but she cant stand over him to get the work done.
