I'm almost certain that my 8 yr old has ADD. No hyperactivity but he loses focus ALL THE TIME especially in school.
He'll just zone out and then he'll get in trouble for not completing assignments. He knows the work, so it's not an issue of him not being ABLE to do it but he says that he can't stop thinking. I need to help him focus more but I don't want to drug him.
He's in 3rd grade this year so I am worried that he will zone out during the standardized test in the Spring and have to go to Summer school to be promoted.
So does anyone here have any ideas (food, vitamins, anything) that will help me help him.
**ETA**I want to thank everyone for their suggestions and helpful advice. I haven't been able to reply to everyone but I have read each and every response.
I made an appointment with his doctor to discuss my concerns, the appointment is next month. In the mean time, I'm going to try the Omega 3, cutting out red dye, and processed foods. I'm also considering the Bright Spark supplements but I am doing more research and reading about those.
Thanks again you all don't realize how helpful you have been
