Hello, my son is 14, was diagnosed with the inattentive form of ADHD a year ago. I home schooled him in 7th grade and put him in a charter school for 8th grade and this is the first year has been an academic disaster!!! His school is rigorous with project-based learning and I am finding that this is the worst for students who struggle with ADHD. We try methylphenidate and Vyvanse and both did not work, they only made him sick with side effects. He is failing all his core classes and I've done so much to try to turn it around and we still haven't. The projects they give them have a multi-layered approach and he uses a Chromebook. He has so many missing assignments and he is mostly clueless about the big projects what he's supposed to do. I'm devastated that he will finish the 8th grade year with F's! I tried to get a 504 plan and that didn't work out. Should I just count this year as a loss and put a 504 in place for high school? Or should I do a summer school program? Before this year my son was in A-B student. Now this year he's failing and overwhelmed and frustrated. I just don't know what to do.
