Make sure the school knows

This. And make sure he takes it with food. It made me feel sick if I didn't eat right after I took if.

Also include some sort of child therapy program to teach your kid to understand and how to handle symptoms and stigma he or she may face. They need to know that they aren't stupid or lazy, but also that their ADD isn't an excuse to become complacent or to give up on school. Medications have been called out for not curing anything or solving anything in the long run, so learning how to manage it is a must at any age.

I personally wouldn't do it. He is very young.

I would make sure that I've tried EVERYTHING else first before I medicated my 7 year old.
