Advice. I need it.
I told Donna that if her son is ADD, then EVERY boy is ADD.
About that time, another mom came up. "Oh, they labeled my son last week."
Oh yes. He has a physiological condition with his eyes that is being treated, has been addressed with the school, and they still labeled him ADD.
"So have they labeled your sons?" she asked me.
"Not yet," I answered.
Then I came home to an email. They want O and me to meet with the teachers and a special ed psychologist concerning one of the boyos tomorrow. Yeah I know, my stomach dropped through my nethers.
We're not sure what they are going to say yet. We will not stand for an ADD diagnosis. That would make 4 in a class of 24 students, or 4 out of 10 boys. Really?
I'm not saying he's doing well. Because he's not right now. I suspect dyslexia. Anyway, I'm hoping that is the diagnosis. ADD will not stand.
Has anyone else dealt with this? Advice?
