I am new to all this but this post describe my 9 year old daughter to a T and for several years now we have been talking on and off about getting a diagnosis. Like you my instincts are so strong that my daughter is struggling with ADHD. My question is how did you go about trying to get a diagnosis? Like you, my daughter seemingly doesn’t show any ‘typical’ ADHD traits at school although does have friendship issues and the school have noticed her anxiety. I guess I just don’t really know how to start with the process? Any advice would be gratefully received
