Hopefully you have him in some kind of counseling. Sounds like he needs it considering everything he's been thru. As for his ADHD, it's perfectly normal for him to do his homework in 15 minute intervals. My middle son has it & that's what he'd do. He couldn't focus for that long. That's what worked for him & he graduated 3rd in his class! Considering your son has a lot of other things distracting him, I would hope the counseling & breaking tasks down into smaller time chunks will help. GL to you all.
