My son is 11 years old and has ADD. I've done OT with him for a year when he was 8. I even put him in a smaller school so he could get more attention but last year things at school were getting so bad that I had to put him on Ritalin for school days only. I Took him off it cos im scared he'll feel he can't do anything without it, but he's really not doing well in school. He's very well behaved in school but has been behaving so badly at home, like he's frustrated. I'm pulling my hair out with him, homework takes hours and we have to sit sometimes 3 hours on a weekend also and a lot he should be finishing in class. I don't know what to do? Should I take him out of school? I can't afford tuition or anything else. He struggles with spelling and handwriting also.anyone can help or know if homeschooling might help or anything else ?? Thanks in advance
