Our expert says:
I don't consider occupational therapists properly qualified to do IQ testing or to make any diagnosis, of ADD or anything else. NOR is OT an appropriate treatment for ADD. Ritalin is far better for a child with ADD than OT. It is absolutely and definitively NOT only for children with abnormalities in their EEG. It would be worthwhile trying the effect of Ritalin for a fair period, and see whether it helps him. None of the articules you may have written on the web ( many by people with their own axe to grind ) i about your child.
