ADD / ADHD board

Oh, sorry, misread OCD as ODD. Oops!

Hmmmm..... As far as medications, has he tried Zoloft? Zoloft, I believe, is approved for use with obsessive-compulsive disorder and would maybe help his lack of motivation if he has some mild underlying depression.

I'd also use those video games and cartoons as a motivational tool. He gets "x" amount of playing time once he's done "y & z". He gets to watch this amount of tv for accomplishing that. Etc.

I wonder, too, if the football coach could see about getting him involved as a helper of some sort with other teams - basketball, soocer or baseball. If it came from one coach to another, maybe the other coaches would be more receptive.

My heart goes out to you.
