Small Update on Jonah

So, we took Jonah to see his pediatrician on Monday morning.  It went well.  She was a little confused that I had never mentioned any issues to her before, and I had to explain that I didn’t much see it as a big issue that he wouldn’t grow out of.  Understood.  She went on to say that she in no way thinks, at this point, that Jonah has any ODD, ADD, ADHD, or any other such condition that would need medication.  She did say that a psycho-educational evaluation would be a very good idea.  She mentioned that, in her experience, when kids are antsy and disruptive it is because they are bored and unchallenged.  It happened with all three of her kids, she had them all tested, and it turns out they are all “gifted”.  She believes it is possible that Jonah is just beyond the work being given to him in class.  Come Friday, we shall see.  We got an appointment with one of the docs that his pediatrician recommended, and are eager to hear the results…whatever they may be.  At least it’s a step in the right direction.  Tomorrow is his first day back to school since his suspension, and I’m hoping it goes well.  I will update again on Friday or Saturday.  🙂
