I am going through the same thing my son is 6. There is no hyperactivity and he is fine accademically. They can not make you medicate.He was tested by the child study team at school to see if they could pick up anything. They did not and he still can not focus, his attention span at school is not there and he comes home every single day with his work not done. The alternatives that I am working on are his diet. He mostly eats carbs; pasta, pizza, chicken nuggets, waffles, pancakes, cereal ect (he does have a well balanced meal at dinner) I have read alot about how the diffrent foods affecting our abilities and I have had him tested for vitamin deficiency's. There are alot of suppliments out there its just that where do you start.
