    My son was dx with ADHD at the age of 7 in February 2010. Immediately through the support of his teacher, tutor and a few parents I came up with an intervention package.He was struggling in phonics,reading and his confidence was low. I enrolled him in a summer camp that teaches ortho gilliinham approach to reading and writing. I also started in on meds.He has had 2 that failed within the first month and had to be d/c. He has been on Adderal 5mg tab (short acting) for 3 months with great success.He takes cod liver oil and vitamins daily which I purchased from the health food store.My son went from a barely making C's to straigth A with a 89 ( in spelling. As a family we are attending counselling. I am educating myself by reading up on research done and gaining insigth into this condition.
