Over the holiday week Baby A had a sinus infection. YUCK. While at the pediatrician’s office I was explaining to her about Wildman’s behavior. I explained about how socially his friends are growing up and he never gets past the behavior of a 3 year old. I then went on about his incredible impulsiveness. She gave me the worksheets for my husband and I to fill out and for his teacher to fill out for starting to get him diagnosed. This is a good thing since he will be able to get all kinds of early intervention if he is in fact ADHD. My husband and I filled out a questionnaire. He rated the highest in over 17 of the 21 questions on the first page. I have no doubt at what we are looking at here.
I already polished off my Google MD degree. I have found that the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia has a Center for the Management of ADHD. I read many a article pointing me to the research done there. If we get the referral I am going to choose to go there.
If we get this diagnosis I will have both kids covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act for when they get to school for food allergies are covered as well. Great. Can’t wait to see what happens next. I am starting to feel punched.
