What to tell your kids about testing?

I had a question from a client today. She wanted to know what to tell her nine year old daughter about why she was going to neuropsych testing. My response was atypically brief, so I thought I would just post it too.

I would point out that you know she is struggling with lots of stuff. The testing is to see if you she has ADHD just like mom and aunt –––. If she does, that’s actually a good thing, because it can be dealt with and her life can get easier and less stressful.
