I would suggest talking to the dr. and see if his meds needs an adjustment. Medication is everchanging for mutiple reasons. You will find one that works eventually. Being in a new school I'm sure is a huge adjustment in itself! If he's not on a IEP, I would encourage to start one and build those relationships with the teachers of his needs. If he is , then I would ask for a meeting with all his teachers. My son will try to sit there and pretend he's doing the work and it's never gets done, he's 11 and is on medicine. Some days just require more prompting than others and have expressed this his teachers. Or maybe ask the teachers what you can do home to help him succeed.


Yes hes in IEP but its also stressful to be on teachers..thanks will speak with his psych.
