Is he taking a stimulant medication for the ADHD? Stimulants can increase aggression and agitation, especially in the come down phases. Sometimes stimulants work great and then it’s like a light switch is flipped and the stimulant create more problems. I’ve seen this in prepubescent boys, especially. I also find the constant praise exhausting.
