ADHD or not, this is something that should have been addressed when he started the behaviour...say around 1 YO! Unless the child is severely mentally delayed, ADHD isn't the root of this problem. Lack of redirection when he was a toddler is what is going on here/
Tell him he's old enough to stop putting shit into his mouth that doesn't belong there. Tell him as often as necessary, and be firm. This should have happened at 1 YO, 2 YO...those ages. Now it is a habit that has formed, and is going to be hard to break.
