Dear Jeanette,

Whoever assessed your son for ADHD should have given you a way forward, even if it is not ADHD?

If you were not given any recommendations, I would suggest having your son assessed by a neurologist and educational psychologist - a holistic approach will likely give you more information to work with than seeing one or the other.

Best of luck,
Delia
