For those who are not familiar with bio medical treatment , there are natural alternatives to drugs such as Ritalin or sleeping pills.
Our boys, two of whom additionally have ADHD take nutritional supplements. One did have Ritalin for a year age 7 when he was frequently smashing windows and could not sit still at all. I was not keen for a lifetime of drugs so we sought alternative help.
The boys were treated for a few years by a wonderful qualified Doctor who specialised in autism but since then they have been treated by nutritionists. Nutritionists don’t just talk about diets.
Supplements such as Theanine (found in green tea) and 5 HTP are given but you do need specialist advice and shouldn’t try to treat your children without a recommended expert.
