Nephew 14

My 14 yr old nephew has been treated with meds since he was 2nd grade. He is about to go into 8th grade and his reading level is at a 3rd grade level. He is being raised by grandmother and has many issues; father not present and in and out of jail for drugs. Mother isn't around but when it's convenient, also drugs....I have suggested free library reading programs for the summer, to no avail. He is in some special classes at school this year. Math and reading. I just can't believe the meds are working, or the caregivers for this child, and wonder what would help.
