  •  It gets better (7+ / 0-)

    My son was finally diagnosed at age 10. He has the predominantly inattentive form and getting to the bottom of what was going on was a devastating process. Taking him to a pediatric neurologist was the best thing I ever did. Ritalin changed his life and now, several years down the road, he is absolutely thriving and brimming with self confidence.

    One thing his school did after the diagnosis was to put him on a daily report card system for a term. After each class, his teachers marked his progress on remembering to bring his books, his homework, etc. And every night, I had to sign it as well. Combined with the meds, it was a fantastic learning tool.

    Good luck to you and your son! It really does get better with the right intervention.
