I'm going to post this here since I usually post on the budget disboards, I figured some fellow Disers could help me out. First a little background: DS is 7, turning 8 next month. He has overcome SO much, he was diagnosed with leukemia (AML) when he was 22 months old, long story short he had a stem cell transplant in 2003 and is wonderfully healthy now. He also has "graduated" from speech therapy, he went from not knowing all of the letters of the alphabet at the beginning of first grade to reading at a 3rd grade level now in 2nd grade. We just see him improving constantly, he is growing so much. His muscles that wasted from steroids are building back up now and he's able to bowl in a league and do karate. The area we are having an issue with is his behavior. He has always had some problems, I will be the first to admit that he's been spoiled more than our other kids (we have 5, he's in the middle), more by neccessity than anything. One major problem is that he gets distracted very easily. He works slowly, everything is at his own snail's pace, and this is interfering severly with his school work, even getting dressed in the morning and eating meals is a problem. At the end of this month he has an appt. with his pediatrician and I want to have him tested for an attention disorder. What can I expect? Are there any specific questions I should ask? Also, does anyone know of any good websites for information on this? This is sort of a last resort for me, I really don't want DS to take anymore medication. We have tried adding vitamins to his diet, specific foods, routines and routine charts, rewards, although it's getting difficult to reward when it is infiltrating so much of his life. I just don't think he will be successful in third grade if I don't find a solution. TIA for any help or advice.
