I have a 16 year old son who according to all the testing the school and I have had done is extremely intellegent, aces tests, and seems be able to remember just about anything he hears, he was however diagnosed as ADD when he was in the 3rd grade. It seems though with his 504 in place that this kid should be making As and Bs (I would be happy with Cs) but he in reality he is flunking almost all his classes....because he will not do his homework. I have tried taking things away (this kid hasn't seen his video games in years), paying him for completed assignments (he has never collected), and have even at a point of weakness spanked his tush (that only got me three days of completed assignments... but it just doesn't seem the right thing to do). If anyone has anything they have tried that worked I would really appreciate the input...
