When my son was about this age i was in your exact spot. I asked it I should have him tested and they said no,no. He’s not ADHD. He’ll grow out of it. I’m now dealing with a super smart kid in high school and the teachers don’t have time for the behavior stuff. We finally had a Neuro-Psych evaluation (which freaked me out but was fine) and ADHD diagnosis and finally in the right direction. Still a work in progress. He’s super smart with executive function issues. I wish I went with my gut. It so much harder as they get older because my biggest hurdle is that he wants to do everything himself and be an independent teenager.
