Reply To: Bad Behavior in school

Anni @ ADDitude

Hi again:
I absolutely love Ireland, but I understand the diagnosis and treatment protocols there might be quite different than what we are used to. Has your son been formally diagnosed with ADHD? It sounds like the school is making accommodations by providing the movement breaks you mentioned, but maybe this is standard for all students? Regardless, you mentioned CBT but I wonder if his doctor has spoken with you at all about medication options. Sometimes, symptoms do flare during puberty and many families find that they need new treatment strategies to keep the wheels on the bus.
