My 11 yr. old son has ADHD, Asperger's, and sensory problems. Even on his ADHD medicine when he is calm, he still runs every where. Can you help?

Every time--EVERY time--he runs in the house, stop him, make him go back and WALK, then make him go back and walk again--three to five times! Hopefully, it will sink in...

I'd try the above suggestion & maybe you can try a behavioral therapist to help you instill the rules with him.

Rewards for walking- a sticker chart to earn a prize?

Losing privileged for running like video game/tv time?

I would just stay on him. Also if he fails to follow through, take privledges away.
