To be very blunt, I do not take my kids to their pediatrician analysis of their English or History tests. I am sure as h- not going to an educator for pharmaceutical recommendations.

If you are not seeing a behavioral pediatrician, I urge you to look one up and make an appointment. That is who should be making determinations about medical issues. Including medicine.

I do not know how it is with ADHD/ADD, but with ASD, “medical” and “educational” diagnosis are completely different. Someone with a medical diagnosis can not get educational services until they also get the educational diagnosis.
