I would really like to know what led you to get your child tested. What symptoms did they show...and how long it went on before you did have them tested.
My own child is 6...and I am finding that she cannot pay attention to anything. She is an extremely bright child...but, just cannot pay attention. A prime example...she has been in gymnastics for four months. She literally, knows nothing. She can't stop talking, stand still and pay attention long enough to even learn how she's supposed to hold her hands. I have sat her down and talked to her before every class, still...she can't pay attention.
She fidgets alot too. She absolutely cannot sit or stand still. She cannot even walk normal. She is either dancing, or twirling.
I didn't really give it any thought, until this week, when she took swimming lessons. After two weeks, all the other kids have grasped the basics. But, mine is too busy climbing in and out of the pool and playing with her goggles to even learn how to kick properly.
So, I'm concerned that this is something more than behavior problems. I would like to hear other parent's stories. Thank you!
