My son is 13 and ADHD. He is very smart and can sometimes be pretty mature. However he mostly acts like a little child. He constantly makes noises, talks excessively, and can be very exhausting at times. He has a very hard time focusing on things unless he is very interested. He looks to get a lot of attention even if it's negative attention. He isn't disrespectful or rude but intense. He is on 40 mg Adderal extended release. His teachers point out that he doesn't act like a normal 13 year old boy. He doesn't stay on task at school and needs many many reminders. I think He tries to be class clown at school because when people laugh and think he's funny he feels liked. He has been called annoying by peers also. It's heartbreaking, and I have very little patience. I try to not freak out but sometimes I end up yelling. I feel like he isn't listening to me and 8 million things are running through his head. Our insurance just changed so I'm looking into getting him a therapist since his old one doesn't take his insurance. He's not excited about starting over with someone new.
