While what you have to say regarding your son may well be the case. My point here is try NON-addictive treatments first. If medication is considered, it should be the last ditch effeort if behavior modification and counseling are having NO effect. There is absolutely no statistical indication the ADD/ADHD chilren do better academically or learn better or retain more - only that thew are calmer and more focused. The point of all of this is to help them, not anethsatize them!
