    I have a child with ADHD. I tried the Ritalin with little to no success. I found the drug made my child lethargic and once it wore off she would either crash or become even more hyper-active. Believe me, I tried it for a period of time to see if it would build up in her system and alleviate not only the behavior but the side effects. It did not. After doing much research I found two programs that are working for my daughter and my family. I use Play Attention and ADHD Nanny. Play Attention is a program that builds behavioral shaping and she loves to play it which makes it that much more easy on me. ADHD Nanny (she is young), gives me and my family tools for everyday structure to assist her. Recently divorced I found it difficult to keep her structured because of going back and forth from two homes. Now, each household uses it and it is working for her and the family.

    you said she is young do you think it would still work for my son as he is 15 now. i to am divorced from his father and unfortunatly i dont get any support from him at all and it is because of him that my son refuses to discuss conventional medication, because of his age i am unable to stop him from seeing his father so even if it would be appropriate his father would not be willing to follow the routine.
