I feel like you were writing about our 7 year old – right down to the soccer and weight issues. We also get the rebound when the ADHD med wears off. We’re currently trying a small dose of cholonidine to help with the “agitation” in the late afternoon.
Bascially, we’re not doing the soccer in town any more and doing a buddy soccer on Saturday mornings and a traditional basketball skills development class at a private facility on Sundays. So he’s getting the experiences in a different way.
This is a tough one. Last year I had to reach out to past classmates to get a handful of kids to our son’s party. We’re doing one this year, but I reached out to people from outside his class in advance.
Are you open to posting on an ADHD board to find other kids in your area, who likely don’t get many invites and might want to come?
