My son who is diagnosed with ADD has been failing every academic test in 10th grade this year (only 1 month into the school year). He has never been a "student" but teachers indicate that he is not putting in the time needed for homework. I vbelieve he is upset about these grades but not enough to change his bad study habits. We also changed his medication before school and I fear that these meds are not doing the job to keeps him focused. I am also concerned about him socially. He has always been a loner and doesn't have a best friend or a crowd he hangs out with. he seems very shut down and refuses to discuss anything with me. I fear for his academic and social future. Fortunately he is a good athlete and is on the JV soccer and travel team for soccer. What can I do to help him?
