Hang in there. My 11 year old dtr dx with adhd this year. Pediatrician recommended a psychologist who confirmed with testing. After 6 months and trial of 5 meds we finally got her on the daytrana patch which works for her. We also do adhd coaching once a week. Highly recommend coaching. My dtr refused to join in but we have learned so much on how to help our dtr. It was so eye opening. She is now talking a little bit but our approach to her has improved and behaviors improved by over 50% even without the meds.
It’s a process but so worth it
Best to you
