miracle drug
We hesitated to use medication in our sons treatment until it was absolutely necessary. Well it became necessary when his 2nd grade school essentially kicked him out at the end of the 3rd semester and had him transferred into a special program at another school for kids with emotional disabilities. We began medication and he was able to transfer back into a mainstream school program in 4th grade. The difference that we saw after he started the medication was for us... day and night.
