It must be incredibly frustrating to do everything you can to try to help your son, only to see him fight every single thing you do. I don’t envy your position at all.

Is home schooling by distance learning a possibility? Can he complete his coursework for high school that way?

Coming from someone who works with teens in a school setting, I find that many students I have encountered with ADHD don’t find a lot of success in a regular high school program. Many of them find some success in distance learning, where they can hyper-focus on one course at a time, instead of having to spread out their learning among many different subjects at once.

Another question I have for you: When he does attend school, does he come home feeling happy and fulfilled? Or is he miserable? Is he happier at home or at school?
