We are getting our son tested for ADHD: What should we expect?

Due to reports from my 6yo son’s teacher, we are having him tested for ADHD. He has a hard time keeping his hands and feet to himself, along with not listening to redirection or simple instructions. He won’t stay in his seat and talks excessively. What are some?s I should ask the dr, what should I be prepared for? also, what are some tips or tricks to get him to behave better? I have grounded him, taken away electronics and all his toys, I have even set him at the kitchen table all evening with just books as punishment for his bad behavior.

Has anyones child been diagnosed with ADHD: Advice?

Has anybody’s Child been diagnosed with ADHD?If so are they been treating with medication? What are the main side effects you noticed on your Child? I’m deeply against medicating my Child. Are their any alternatives anybody is using? I’m taking my Child to be evaluated next week. He is super smart and is one of the top students in the class despite him not focusing and paying attention to the teacher he has the energy for days. We have tried EVERYTHING from taking toys, PlayStation away, TV spanking him, and nothing has worked. Looking for advice.
