Hi all. I am new here. My 7yo son has recently been diagnosed with ADHD - inattentive type. We are currently deciding on whether or not to medicate him. He is having a hard time focusing in school, and his struggle with executive functioning causes problems at home as well. I'm afraid of medication and all the possible side effects (depression and anxiety already exist in our genes), but my husband wants to give it a try so that our son doesn't fall behind in academics and doesn't suffer any more with his self-esteem. He is a bright boy who loves to read, write comic books, and build things. They say there are therapies out there to help him, but I have no idea how to find them. Can anyone relate and provide their experience?
