I have a 9 year old boy with ADHD. He has struggled mostly in school, he is very bright but he does not retain what he learns. We have taken him out of public school after several problems (the public school system was going to advance him to the next grade although he was not ready) so, now he and our 7 year old daughter are being home schooled on the A Beka program. Our daughter has done exceptionally well, but our 9 year old struggles. I believe he feels inferior, and we encourage him strongly that he is very smart (which he is) and that his school work is harder than hers.
I have done so much study on ADHD, but I cannot find a solution for helping him to retain what he learns. Has any one had the same or similar situation?
