Yesterday was Elliott’s medication appointment. It has been decided that the best course of action is to treat what may be ADHD.
The logic behind this is that we aren’t sure what’s what. There are any signs of ADHD and anxiety.
The reason we are going to address the ADHD first is because the medications work immediately. This means that if it is ADHD playing a role, we can provide Elliott with the fastest relief by addressing it first.
We will then reassess and decide if the anxiety is still present.
All we are waiting on is two assessments to be reviewed before we decide what medication to try.
It’s sometimes really difficult to know what’s what, especially in younger kids. Unfortunately, the truth is, that things may sometimes need to be teased out.
This is exactly what we are doing.
This may seem like a weird approach but it’s the safest and I stand by this decision.
