“An as needed extra Ritalin dose for homework and after school priorities” sorry but this is just so sad to say about a 10 year old child.

After school priorities for a 10 year old should be to play and if possible go out to the park. No meds required for this.

Homework in primary school isn’t compulsory, so do it when he’s in the mood for it and leave it when he’s got a really bad day. No meds required for this.

My 10 year old has adhd and even though the “experts” suggested meds he’s doing just fine without it. He’s learning coping strategies as he goes along which is very important for anyone with adhd.
