Personally, I’d just talk to him and let him know that you know he’s being punished for things outside his control and that you know it’s unfair. Let him know you still expect him to do his best, but you understand that the school is expecting him to do things his ADHD makes very difficult, and you will not punish him for times when he was being punished for having ADHD.
