Hi my 7 year old son has recently been evaulated at Hofstra Univ. My main concern was inattentive ADD, but the doctor is leaning towards a slow-processing speed. She also suggested OT which he has received in pre school. Honestly, I am hoping to get services through the school district eventually but wanted to move forward sooner than later. I am curious about the cost of OT, and more detail about the therapy? Any info would be very helpful.Thank you,Emily
