I have been afraid this might be my son. He will be turning 6 in January and his ability to not sit still, always stimulated and no personal space boundaries has been worrying me. We let him start first grade this year and I am worried sick already since his new teacher has already requested a meeting with us. Sigh. Being that we are now in Canada their system is different from the US and everything happens at a snails pace especially when it comes to specialist appointments. I would rather know if something is wrong, get the appropriate treatment and make sure he is doing well than guessing as to what might be wrong. It doesn't help that his dad, Kindergarten teacher last year don't think he needs an evaluation. We have gone through a lot with my sweet boy. First it was not being able to speak till he was three due to all the ear infections and it wasn't until I changed Drs he got his tubes placed and after some extensive speech therapy he caught up with his peers and doing well. As a mom, I am always scared of just how far I am willing to go in regards to him being medicated. Thanks for sharing your story. Will see how our meeting with the teacher goes and we will go from there.
