So, short story long, we finally did take him to a pediatric neurologist (not the one the school recommended) who reviewed his testing, interviewed me and my son, and did a couple tests with him. She says the school has missed the boat and what he has is Nonverbal Learning Disability. In her opinion, the distractibility/fidgetiness is the result of processing difficulties rather than the other way around. She noted the scatter in his subtests that are indicative of NLD.
Thing is, that like with the ADD possibility, my son doesn't really fit the NLD profile completely either. I think the school is going to reject this diagnosis and say the distractibility caused the scatter in his testing. I'm SO not looking forward to school starting again.
Do any of you have experience with NLD?
