What the Expert Says:

start with a meeting with the teacher. Next, talk to your pediatrician or the person who prescribes his medication.  Finally, you may need to enlist the help of a behaviorist to set the school and home structure to make this work for him. The sooner you get to work on the issue, the easier middle school will be for everybody no less puberty.
