ADHD Anybody?

My boy, he tries so hard.
I have constantly felt like we are failing him. 
The school will provide help only with a medical diagnosis. 
Fine.
You want my kid to have a label? Done.
Tested and diagnosed.

He is a child WITH ADHD.

Next year, the school is going to adhere to a federally mandated 504 plan that will allow my boy the opportunity to learn how to manage how he processes information. 

No black or white for my kid.
He is the gray area.
He is outside the box.

We've got a huge adjustment to go through but I will not give up on him.
