My almost 6 yr old will be having his evaluation done at Kennedy Krieger Institude here in Baltimore MD. They told me it would be a 2 hrs evaluation.


What should I expect?


What our pediatrician had us do was just to fill out some questionaire and from that she determined he had ADHD. I am hoping that's not what they are going to do at this place right. They want Julian to be present.

Yes this is our first visit. I guess I'll find out then if there would be anymore visits.


I am so anxious about this although DS doesn't know yet about this appointment yet. I don't even know what to tell him. Luckily is during his spring break so he won't have to miss school.

Hi!


A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
