Hi Roxie:

It's me nicole from the step-parenting board, I was so surprised to see that you are the moderator here too, that's great!

OK, my question is:

I took SD to see the psych. Dr, today and she had a list of questions that needed to be checked off re: SD and her behaviours that we have been noticing.

You know the kind: example of some of the questions:

Do you find SD, is fidgety

Do you find SD, is disruptive

Do you find SD, seems to loose everything

Basically a checklist of the symptoms of ADD/ADHD, (man I had flash back of when I took ODD to the doctor when she was first diagnosed at 4,).

Anyways, SD, fits most of the answers to the survey.

Does, anyone have or know of a article that I can print out and to give to DH and BM, as they are still kinda in denial, I'd love to have them read it.

I've always been pretty sure that she has ADD, so I won't be surprised when the test comes back that she is. But, this is just a small hurtle, as she does have so many other issues.

Anyways, thank in advance everyone!

Hi Nicole,

You can check the board resouce site at the top of the page and then check in the lefthand margin of the website for articles or check the "see also" link to an article about what every parent should know about ADD or some such thing. Maybe something like that is what you're looking for??

Sorry, I missed your post. Found it though.

I have a ton of books that I can recommend to you. How about Driven to Distraction. I have so many I can't even count them at the moment. I you like I'll get them all together and give you the list.

If DH & BM aren't open to even looking at their child being medicated I can recommend a book called "No More Ritalin: Treating ADD/ADHD without drugs" by Mary Ann Block. She has a center out in Texas and does osteopathic medicine for disorders of this type for those who don't want to medicate. I'm not sure if it helps, but those are two books that I have. I think I gave you the name of another one as well.

I'll see what other ones I can find for you.
