Hello, I’m a parent of a 9 year old who from pre-k was forced to get evaluated. He scored off the charts. However he has major issues in the classroom. He can’t sit still, has been diagnosed adhd. He is super smart and does well most of the time. I know it is going to get harder as he gets older, school here is super competitive. He has a 504 in place. Doing homework with him is exhausting and can take hours. The hardest part is that he is aware of his struggles. I think he is being somewhat mmanipulative lately and using it to his advantage. I Tried giving him l-theanine and he became hysterical, told him it was a vitamin. Anyone else have luck with l theanine? I’m trying to hold off on meds
