ADHD at School
Newly diagnosed son reluctant for medication
Hi all - my 12 year old son was just diagnosed with ADHD and he is very upset with the idea of taking medication as he thinks it will change who he is. Does anyone have any suggestions about how to address this? We have had a Psychologist explain it to him, and we have approached it with the science behind it but that isn’t working. He really needs the help it would provide…thank you
