Sophomore girl, struggling, first pysch visit next week
My D20 has been seeing a therapist since the fall, initially for anxiety/depression but as they've talked more the therapist feels like she should be evaluated for ADHD and for medication to treat.
What should I expect from the first visit?
D is highly gifted, particularly in math but as high school has ramped up her grades are slipping and she has trouble staying on task and managing her to do list. She runs or swims 2 hours a day, has since very young and I believe that has helped her manage to now.
She has always struggled with writing, but is better on keyboarding. She was referred for dyslexia tesitng in fourth grade but diagnosis was listed as possible, not confirmed due to 9-12th grade reading level results.
One thing at a time though, I think. Focus on ADHD right now?
