My 9 yr old DS just received a diagnosis of ADHD - inattentive and Anxiety after having an evaluation with a child psychologist. Her recommendations are to start with therapy and behavior modification/support, then move on to medication if there isn't marked improvement. I submitted her report to DS's school counselor today in hopes of starting the process of putting a 504 plan in place for DS. Given that the educational supports recommended don't require much from anyone in the school setting (i.e. seating arrangements, a reasonable amount of assistance from his teacher in staying on task and getting organized), I don't anticipate much of an issue in getting the plan implemented. However, given that we are still in the shock phase of coming to grips with a diagnosis, I would love some advice from those of you who are more experienced with all of this so that I can make sure that my DS is receiving all the help he needs to be happy and successful.
