I have been where you are and there are many others. My suggestions: test for allergies, watch Jonathan Mooney on YouTube (he’s ADHD and dyslexic)-share with teachers, & other parents, listen to Dr. Sandford Newmark (an ADDitude contributor) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=4M9jD5a4CFE, AND https://m.youtube.com/watch?t=11s&v=26e5PqrCePk&itct=CBYQpDAYACITCPKUgN2o9tgCFdM6qgodE84OEzIHYXV0b25hdkj5ooGOn6m05CY%3D then
have the school evaluate him (including behavior & have a BCBA make a report & recommendations that include them attending (IEP or 504 plan) meetings working with teachers. I am in Alabama but typically most states have one. Our disabilities advocacy program to simply 80 8P. Also check for a parent resource center in your area. Here in Alabama ours is called Alabama parrot education center. They were most helpful to me!
