Re: I need help! My son is driving me bonkers

ADHD is not a problem of knowing what to do, it's a problem of doing what you know.
We do learn from our mistakes, but the brain doesn't make the connection to keep
us from making the same mistakes, over and over.

Does your son have an IEP (independent study plan) or 504 Plan in place at school?
He may need accomodations such as someone to remind him to stay on track,
and to notice when he's getting frustrated and needs a break or some help.
