Quoting Meg ♥:" Yes!! In preschool I got phone calls daily..... "Ohhhh, she isn't listening" "Ohhhhhhh, she threw herself ... [snip!] ... down again....." "Mrs.. <insert last name> I think she may have ODD" My emotions were all over the place.... "
my son is in 2nd grade now. his "issues" started in kindergarten. he turned 5 the day school started. the very first day his teacher told me he was too young and immature. he wanted to learn, but she said he wasnt ready. I said "then why is the deadline so late?" anyway, for the remaining 3 weeks that he went there she either sent notes or called daily telling he he had ADD and wasnt ready. I got tired of her and had him tested. They told me that he did seem the type (they couldnt diagnose him) and said that he might feel more comfortable at a preschool where they were able to handle non-medicated children better (since I refused to medicate). I did that. I pulled him out and let him go to pre-school one more year. he was having a hard time concentrating; I couldnt deny it. so i had his doctor test him and he diagnosed him with ADD, and we started him on low-dose meds. they worked well.when he went to kindergarten the next year I didnt have an IEP in place for him and he struggled. his teacher reccommended resource for 1st grade. when we moved that summer I had him tested again, thoroughly this time with an IQ test as well. This time he was diagnosed with ADHD and anxiety. he received his IEP and things got better. Now he is in yet another school, still on an IEP, and his new teacher sends home such great reports.
