Hi everyone, I am a very educated, professional mom who is in education and I attend ETR and IEP meetings for a living. Sounds like fun, right? LOL! Well, I am venturing into the other "side of the conversation" as a parent with a child that learns differently. We recently had our 7 year old son evaluated by the Cleveland Clinic (he goes to a private school and it was honestly just easier than dealing with the public school system). We are headed to meet with the psychologist in about a week to go over the findings. I am suspecting ADD/ADHD and I have a million questions. I was wondering what types of questions you wished you would have asked if/when you were in this situation. Being the parent is a totally different experience and I am having a lot of anxiety about it! Please share what has worked, especially non-medication solutions if you have any ideas. Thank you in advance!
