I guess it depends on your sons age. I was diagnosed when I was 8 but my mother didn't believe that I should be on medication because ADD or ADHD can often be confused with kids just being kids. So she refused to believe what they told her. She didn't even tell me until I have been recently diagnosed with Adult ADD.... PS... THANKS MOM! I could have been treated a long time ago!!! It explains a lot of decisions I made in life. As you get older it gets worse.

ANYWAYS. If you don't want to go the medication route, talk to your sons doctor about options; weekly therapy, organization (having a daily set schedule for everything he does), good diet, and plenty of exercise are known to organically treat ADD and ADHD. My son was diagnosed with it too, that is the route I'm taking until he is old enough to understand his symptoms and make a choice to take medication or continue the organic way.
