I'm at the end of my rope. I've tried everything i know of and most of it doesn't help. My son has been diagnosed with ADHD since the first grade. He's gotten better with age, but this school year has already begun to slide down the tubes. He constantly "forgets" his homework or papers that he's suppose to be bringing home, he won't stay in his seat in class and is being disruptive to the other students. Mostly I just need to know I'm not alone and that someone might have some advice for me. He was medicated for a while, but everything we tried either didn't work or the side effects weren't worth the benifit. One of them actually made him angry and violent. Any help would be appreciated.

I understand your situation too very well. I have 4 children that are diagnosed ADHD, ADD, LD, OCD and Aspergers,... "and thats just the assosiated disorders to ADHD". Its not your job to keep your child seeted in class or remembering books and assignments during school hours, its the teachers and they are going to have to take his condition with consideration and understanding and gain the resourses your son is intitled to,..let alone their guidence, its their job. I feel guilty even when my daughter continuously forgets her books at school ,..but i am not there to remind her, its the teachers responsibility. So after having a parent teacher meeting i explained the matter and recommended them to help her maintain her responsibilities, and we now keep dialog,..they remind her at school, i remind her at home. Wish you the best of luck in the matter ;)
