    Hiya,
    was just wondering if anyone else has children with ADHD or similar conditions....My son is 7 and has ADHD, he is also undergoing tests with the educational psychologist at school for dyslexia and speech and language.

    My friend has a little boy (just turned 9) who has ADHD... she's convinced Tia has it because Tia is more hyperactive than her son... but I just think she's energetic... :)

    Although Tia does have Dyslexia and Dyspraxia diagnosed, as well as speech and language delay. She has been receiving help from educational psychologists and Speech therapists for years now... and she's doing really well :) Unfortunately shes got a crappy teacher this year whos not very helpful or constructive with her. :roll: But it was bound to happen.
