Like many parents, I was hesitant to take my son to a neurologist and have him formally diagnosed. I thought it was something hed grow out of. --Hes all boy--, --hes got a lot of energy--, or --hes just emotionally immature-- were the common comments. When I look back and compare him to my other younger children, there was/is definitely something noticeably different about him. It started as an infant. When you find yourself exhausted from your child or constantly embarrassed by their behavior, maybe constantly saying, --no, stop, calm down, and relax-- then you need to seek outside help. When youve tried everything under the sun from diet change, organic, supplements, oils, gluten free, oxygen treatments, allergy testing, and prayer and nothing is helping, you need to seek outside help. When school and homework is a challenge (ends up in tears and tantrums) or their peer relationships are affected, you need to seek outside help. Thats what we did by second grade. Luckily the 2nd grade teacher did have special needs children of her own. She knew I pushed against the idea of medication. When the teacher is in tears and offers to pay for the evolution by a neurologist, then its a big deal! Fast forward to the first eval. Dr. McIntosh has an awesome --bedside manner--. Hes patient with the kiddos and really guides the parents to a conservative start on medication, should you choose that route. Our diagnosis is ADHD and Anxiety. After a school year of trying a few different medications and dosages, my sons reading level jumped 400 Lexile points (two grade levels), he soared in sports because he was able to focus, and I received nothing but great behavior reports from the school, coaches, and other parents. We still adjust the medication here and there, but have found a routine thats working for us now. A medium dosage in the morning and small dosage 30 minutes before homework or sports. Theres also 3mg of melatonin at night and a non-processed/low sugar diet. There are still outbursts and school issues here and there, but nothing thats not manageable. We have also finally earned honor roll at school. Yeah!!! I hope this review helps someone. You owe it to your child to do what you can to help them succeed. Ignore the negative talk from your own parents and neighbors regarding medication. Youll come across the naysayers, but youre the one raising the child. Youre paying for their education and raising them up to be a respectable person. Youre the one dealing with the tantrums, hitting themselves, and school issues. You have the final say and wanting whats best for them is always a win-win!
