My step-son has ADHD and we spent over 10 years doing ARDS to review his progress and anger issues. At 16 my husband and my jobs forced us to go to France and my step-sons Mom would not let us take him with us. She wanted to take care of him because she had not spent much time with him. While we were gone he ended up getting in a fight and the other person was hurt. They arrested him, but the guy did not press charges so they released him. A year later someone decided to take up the case, he was tried as an adult and spent over a year in jail, with 7 years probation. We have been trying to get information but no one will tell us anything because he was tried as an aadult. He does not fully understand what is going on and even in the ARD was evaluated to be developmentally delayed significantly younger in maturity than his age. He does not seem to understand what all is required, he gets in trouble and we can't get any information. Please let me know if you know someone who can help.View Thread
