My 11 yr old son suffered a TBI Nov. 2006. He is back in school full time now. He did fine with therapy and tutoring last spring and this summer. Working 1 on 1 and short amounts of time on school type worksheets. He can grasp new concepts at school but he gets confused easily. He may have something in his mind to write down and writes down something else and he gets so frustrated he will hit our kitchen table and I can see tears welling up in his eyes. I have called a meeting for Wednesday at school to make some revisions for him. In the meantime the teachers are cutting his assignments in half. Does anyone have any advice as to how to help my son? Also, we have tried stratterra and ritalin for his ADD but it seems to aggravate his TBI symptoms making him very agitated and/or confused. thank you, ronda

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
