Hi, does he have a 504 plan or an IEP? If not I would look into it, it can help with accomodations . One of the accomodations could be teachers writing down assignments for Homeworks etc, and sending it home.. What you are describing are ADHD symptoms, so , yeah, it is the ADHD.

If he <> , then he is NOT doing well, and the first thing I would do is look into changing the med and/or the dosage.
