DD had her neuropsych testing done today and the neuropsychologist diagnosed her with ADHD, which didn't come as a surprise. Since she is so young, we are going to try and work on getting her to self regulate with OT before we medicate since her main issues are hyperactivity, distractibility and inattentiveness. We are going to work on a sensory diet with her OT and hope that helps. We will see how that goes and how she functions in school before we move onto the next step. He said the good news is that she has excellent language skills and since she is a girl she will be more concerned and aware of socially acceptable behavior and will try to fit into that mold so that should hopefully play in our favor. I am just happy to have a diagnosis so now we can move on to the next step of helping her to be successful. Any others here dealing with ADHD or SPD? Any tips for us as we begin our journey in treating this?
