Attention deficit

Andrea - posted on 10/08/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My 8 year kid can not stay focused long enough to complete class work or home work. I have to sit next to him and coheres him to do each individual problem or question. If I walk away then he is playing talking wiggling, everything but doing his work. It has become a major problem in his classroom. Please help me!!?

Have you had him evaluated for attention deficit disorders? What are the recommendations for his treatment?

Get him evaluated. Start getting him treatment. This can be as little as dietary changes, or as much as medication, but you won't know what works until you have him evaluated and do some research. I hardly think the schools are going to continue to allow you to sit next to him every day to keep him on task, nor should you have to.
