Re: Need some help with my ADHD Child.

How old is he?

If he is old enough it can help to talk about NT behaviour works..... so that he can understand more about the relational world around him. This isn't about getting him to change to be like an NT, but so he can understand where they're coming from.

Trying to change his behaviour doesn't work when kids are in the stage of differentiating... ie decoming different from parents and exploring how they might be in the world. THis time is V difficult for ADDery kids, because no one tells us the rules of the NT game.... and the crazy contradictory cultural messages that NT's easily deal with... generally by blocking it from awareness.

The basic approach is to teach him how the NT world works... then he has more awareness..... and through that the choice to alter his behaviour or not. The trouble is that most adults/parents don't understand this stuff either.... so you'll need to get up to speed on it yourself first.... or make it a joint project.
