Hello, I am taking a class on Learning Disabilities and Related Mild Disabilities. This week we are focusing on ADHD and part of my assignment is to respond to a post on WebMD. The first place I would start is to talk more with your son's doctor and ask for additional resources. You can also talk to your son's teacher, and any other staff that is now involved in helping your son be successful. This is not a death sentence, but I can say that it will be challenging. Go to your library and check out books on ADHD. Go over medications and look for hobbies/activities that your interested in doing/playing. He is not an alien and can still have relationships and good times with peers!
