Have Mental Health Questions? Ask a Psychiatrist Online
Hello there and thanks for asking JA. I would like to first ask what problems is your son having at school. I would also like to ask if your son has seen a therapist and the school psychologist. Do you have insurance?
My sons name isXXXXX is having problems paying attention, He has ADD and he is on med. Instead of paying attention in class he is playing with pensils or his fingers. Now he has discovered lying to us.

I would also like to say that a family therapist can help your son with this behavior. I work with children who have the same diagnosis as your son. A therapist can observe your son in the classroom and help him change his behavior. His school is supposed to provide behavioral help for him. Does your son has an IEP?
