This is an unpopular opinion, but I recommend taking a complete break from all electronics – do an electronics fast for several weeks. No videogames, no phones, no screens. After an initial difficult period, I have a feeling you’ll be surprised by the improvement in interest and connection with your son. I did something similar with my ADD son and it was remarkable. I followed the plan outlined in Victoria Dunckley’s book. I HIGHLY recommend it.
