That is exactly what the psychologist said.

His school has been very very understanding. I think they’ve gotten to that point though, where they feel that this needs to be figured out and fixed. I think they’ve offered us grace because they know we’ve been working with therapists and recently started him on Straterra (which isn’t doing too much), so the therapist suggested a low does of Ritalin, in the morning. Just started him on that today. We shall see how that goes.

Did you see a difference right away when you started him on meds? did it take a while? Do you feel the behavioral therapy has helped? I don’t think my son is in the “right” therapy. She shows him breathing techniques and they play.
