We have the nurse at our 8 year old’s school give him his afternoon dimethylphenidate at 3:00pm every day. This gets him through after school activities, homework, etc. and wears off around 6:30pm. You will of course have to fill out some paperwork to allow them to administer the medication and provide them the medicine, but it is well worth it.

Good luck!
