A.

Paediatrician

Your little girl should be seen by a paediatrician first to decide whether she requires any medical treatment for her ADD. The paediatrician will refer your daughter to an OT if thought to be necessary

Who assest your child to make this diagnoses??Didnt they give you options as to what to do to help your child.I think it would be best to go to a Occupational therapist.A peadiatrician will only send your to someone for assesment or look if theres anything physical wrong!!
