So I had a 30 minute phone call with someone at a university psych department regarding evaluation for my son. (Possible ADHD, Aspergers, Giftedness). Turns out we are having our 1 hour long intake interview on site this Monday?! I'm just feeling overwhelmed about how to make sure I can communicate and remember all of his behaviors? We starting writing some things down just about three weeks ago, not expecting an appointment so soon. I did not expect to feel this overwhelmed. I mean...I've wanted confirmation of his ADHD pretty much since he was in my womb! Then the (slightly irrational) fear..what if they don't diagnosis him with anything and its just his personality?
Also, I didn't realize the intake interview would have my son present. How will we discuss him with him there and have it be accurate? We will just have to list off his peculiar behaviors and ADHD behaviors in front of him?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
