There is an interesting programme on BBC1 now. Sorry for telling you now but i missed the beginning. It is called “ The doctor who gave up drugs” there is a great piece on ADHD children trying mindfulness techniques like meditation. Sounds crazy but really seems to have helped the children. It explains about the drugs they dish out, the side effects etc. Please try to get to see this , it will give you a few ideas at the very least. I cannot believe the change in some of the children, they look calm and happy. One child said, without meds i am myself, with them i am someone else. !
