ADHD at School
I have a 17 year old with ADHD who is on Straterra and Prozac for anxiety attacks. Usually he does well at school but he is taking AP Bio and he is falling apart in the labs. He can’t organize them, he can’t get them finished and he has unbelievable difficulty in listening to and working with a partner. I have spoken with the teacher and basically he is on probation at this point - and he is a NHS member so this could be a real issue. Does anyone have any ideas? His teacher suggested having him cook so we’ve done that a couple of times. I give him a mantra - collaberation, cooperation and always says “its a team effort” but I get the feeling he’s not buying into it beyond lip service.
I would be thrilled to listen to any suggestions anyone has.
