My son had to go to a class called Prefirst. It was a stepping stone before 1st grade. It consisted of repeating kindegarden the 1st half of the year and preparing him for 1st grade the 2nd half of the year. It helped a little.

My opinions are that it so much easier for a child at age 5-8 to adjust to being held back then at a later age. Think about a 5th grader that has all his/her freinds advancing & they are not. My son today doesn't even remember that he had an extra year of school as we just told him this was the normal step in schooling for him. We didn't make a big deal out of it and he is just fine. I truly beleive it is harder on the parents to accept this and to implement it. I think you couldn't go wrong if you did.

I wish I could give you better advice on the meds. than what I am about too, but I can't. We have always had nightmares with the 3 kinds my son has been on thru the years. I have recently took him off all meds.and are trying many different things now, but keep in mind he was ADD w/LD not ADHD. I have heard alot of parents say that concerta, & strattera are working well for them. Look back at some of the older post. They can help you more in that area than I can.

Good luck :)
