Reply To: Refuses to do any class work or homework


My son is 14 and this same thing has been going on for years. I’ve meet with all the teachers, school administrators, agreed to the tests. I just don’t know what else to do. If it’s not Gym or hands on engineering class, he is totally checked out. He’s a phenomenal hockey player and that is where his passion is but all the school tells me is to threaten to take it a way. I can’t do that to him. He was diagnosed with ADHD at 6 and was taking medication until last year. He was always on low doses and it didn’t seem to help him AND he told me it made him feel down so we stopped. In any case, the problem still remains, he just doesn’t do any work. Otherwise not a problem, behaviorally so they don’t put him out. We’re just all at a loss.
