Q.

Concentration in a 6 yr old

My son is in grade one and the teachers say that I must take him to a neurologist because he lacks concentration. Have you ever heard of such a thing? Is it not normal for his age. Am so worried as a parent.

A.

Paediatrician

This is extremely common in boys of his age. It may be a good idea to have your paediatrician check him for hearing, eyesight and state of health such as any allergic condition.
