What if they think your 6 year old has ADD?


Our son is very smart, but has a hard time focusing in school. He has tested to be in 3rd-5th grade levels in different subjects but is only in 1st grade. We have tried working with the teacher and him to get him to pay attention better and focus on what his teacher is wanting him to do. After the first the quarters, our teacher has now suggested he has ADD. I guess we are open to thinking he could have it, but we dont want to medicate him, especially this young. Is there any alternative treatments we would be able to do if he does have ADD? Is there a benefit or downfall to getting him tested
