Re: Thinking of getting DD evaluated for ADHD.

I can relate. My middle dd (9) has ADHD and SPD. She is a very unique, and difficult child. I love her to death, but she is very hard to deal with at times. I homeschooled her for two years and couldn't do it anymore. She needed more structure than I could give her. She goes to a very small private school and loves it. I also get a much needed break from her on a daily basis (M-F anyways!). She has been evaluated by more than one professional. I wouldn't take her to a regular ped. So many parents do that and get handed a prescription to "try". Definately get it checked out. Maybe if your Dh could go with you and talk to the psychologist, maybe he'd be more open to meds, if indeed your dd has it. My child is a totally different kid on her meds. I feel guilty having her on them, but it's not any different from an asthmatic needing an inhaler or a diabetic needing insulin. I hope you find the answers you are looking for!
