I think I'd have to accept the judgement of a person who works with other children and probably has more experience than me at recognizing behaviours and traits common with ADHD or asd. I guess once someone had made the suggestion I probably wouldn't rest easy until I'd had them assessed and I'd have to assume the worker had my child's best interest at heart.
How did the assessment go?
this is how I think now after being through it ... Beforehand I must admit I did get my 'back up' though.
We've had a big array of tests done (speech, hearing, OT and psych). The kindy teacher was on the mark in my sons case. He has auditory processing delays. He is going into grade 1 this year and doing great cause we've worked hard to help Strengthen his learning weaknesses.
On the other hand I've come across other parents propositioned the same way as we were who chose not to assess. I respect their stance too.
