ADHD diagnoses should never be made on just a couple of observations of hyperactivity or the lack of attention.
Ask your child's teacher to keep a detailed record of their activity in the classroom and during breaks, for about two weeks. Jot down your observations in a diary and take all the information to your child’s psychiatrist.
This will help them make a more accurate diagnosis and decide if the child’s medication needs adjustment.
