I don’t enroll my daughter in after school activities because she can’t handle the demands of the school day AND yet another structured acactivity. In your son’s case, I don’t think it’s worth giving him more medication. If you want to improve his soccer playing skills, then do a free style form of practice with you and him, or hire a soccer playing babysitter to play with him, preferably on the weekends. I also always encourage people to get the screens out of the lives of their adhd kids, if that is something that you allow at home. In my opinion, it’s harmful. Read Simplicity Parenting. It’s not specifically geared to adhd kids but is definitely applicable.
