ADHD in Virginia
I am new to this forum, and I am so glad I found a group in Virginia. I am single parent of a six year old boy who was diagnosed with ADHD this fall. He also has a speech and language impairment. He is not currently on any medications nor does he see a therapist regularly. His behavior since school ended is gotten very aggressive and he recently was asked to leave camp even though he had an inclusion coach. He on several occasions ran from the counselors and hit and yelled at them. I am not sure what medications to try it was recommended he try clonidine but I am not sure? Has anyone had any success with this medication I know it is used to slow him down. Also had anyone been told there child was to young for psychotherapy?
