I’m new to this community and seeking help.
My son is 11 yrs old and has ADHD. He is struggling with behavior issues at school. He has tried Adderall 10mg and 20 mg and didn't do well with it. He is now on Metadate 10 mg and Ritalin 5 mg and I'm not sure if it's helping him. He is getting into problems at school. Academically there's no problem, it's just his aggression, throwing things at teacher and kids, yelling at the teachers/peers, hitting other kids when not being heard or ignored, etc.... What else can we do to help my son? Also looking for a child psychiatrist in San Francisco, Daly City, Burlingame, Millbrae,CA area. Some one who can help and meet with my son on a weekly basis, to help him cope with his emotions. He attends a private school and is now on a "Behavior Contract" at school. I don't want my child getting kicked out of school because the staff/administration don't know or don't want to deal with him. They are willing to work with us, but it's getting to the point where they are fed up and loosing hope. Any help/suggestions would help us. Thank you in advance. :O)
