It's possibly too soon to cheer but.......

Medikinet capsule - I hide the contents in cereal.

I attended a meeting in London with J yesterday and he sat through two hours of discussion and was an angel. He talked incessantly (nothing new there) but he concentrated on his Lego, his DS Lite and on a mini Etch-a-Sketch. Despite all the noise and distractions J sat and concentrated. I cannot put intop words how big a deal this is. Is it the medication? Probably too soon to say but it's an improvement.
When we got home J totally spontaneously took a book from his book bag, sat down and read it to me from start to finish - another first. Wow!

And on a positive note the ConDems have decided NOT to make any changes to children's DLA for the present time. I reckon the Tax Credit premium is ripe for picking though.

I had that moment when child took Omega 3,6,9 oil for the first time. Thought we had poisoned him or something, he acted so differently! But lo and behold, it does work - I certainly know when it doesn't!

I'm not keen on medication either, but sometimes one has to put aside one's personal issues and do what is best for child. If we see it with our own eyes, than that is that, really.

Good luck!

I was going to ask how J was getting on, but it def seems positive :) and well done him for reading to you.

Yay! Small steps. To a Mom it is everything when her child does good.
