One hour is too long for an “unmedicated” ADHD child. We wait for 30-min after Ritalin is administered in the morning and start his studies. Moreover, he takes the lead and brings “sight words, math, biology material to demonstrate his knowledge to us. We attempted to study without medication when we didn’t know he was ADHD and learning seemed torturous for him… However, now with medication he enjoys his studies and shows great initiative towards selecting materials for study.
