My son was diagnosed with add and is failing the 2 grade. He forgets things he knows. We tried a natural product called Attend and he broke out in a rash. The doctor put him on Strattera and it made his throat hurt really bad so that he was crying all night.
I know that he won't be able to handle 3 grade work but I don't thinking failing him will help him much. I am thinking of homeschooling him so he can go at his own pace and not worry about what "grade" he is in. He also hates school, has since Kindergarden and would like me to teach him at home.

I agree w/ the earlier posters about getting the maximum testing and interventions from the school before you make the decision to home school. Since your son has ADD, and is forgetting things he knows, unless you have very specific strategies to help him learn and remember what he learns, he may be happier at home but he still won't be learning successfully. And once you leave the school system, I don't know if they have to provide services - I think not.
