If his disability is affecting his performance in school, then he should be entitled to a 504 Plan. You need to send the school a formal request (via certified mail) asking for an evaluation.
Natural Alternatives are worth investigating. They can and do work for some people. Dietary intervention (especially the elimination of chemical additives such as artificial colors, artificial flavors, and certain preservatives) has been very effective in helping to control adhd symptoms in my child.
