HI, and welcome


Some of it sounds like it could be ADHD, or another issue. The only way to know for sure is to have him evaluated by a Neuropsychologist. Ask your pediatrician for a referral , and go from there.

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
