Re: Nephew 14

Unfortunately, medications are just one part of treatment for an ADHD child, a lot of it has to come from the family. He may have other learning disabilities, also.

The biggest thing is structure. He needs to come home and have a spot, like the kitchen table, where he will do all his homework. He probably needs special guidance at school.

To what extent is his grandmother able to provide help? Are you able to?
