There are plenty of good web sites on ADD if you do a search for it. Good tips can be found at www.gorf.com Be sure you son gets all the help he needs at school especially for tests etc. If you have any problems with your school giving him the extra help he needs please remember that ADD is covered by the American Disabilites Act and you school MUST provide the services for him. Our son is on Ritalin also but still tends to drift off in class. We have slowly increased the dose hoping it will help. He has had no side effects from it and has been on it just a year now.
