so what should we expect?

not much of an idea about ADHD anymore. i know this boy takes medication,but its not ritalin. he's a nice young chap. seemingly.

he's 15,but seems a little immature...he smokes (yes,bad,i know) has patches,so trying to give this up. he's been excluded from 2 schools and is now happily settled in a unit for troubled kids. and at college one day a week.

if i see him misbehaving i tell him off,as i do all the other kids who congregate outside. but he is fine and modifys behaviour and apologises. just wondering how this affects teens?

Ummmm, you may find he listnes to the telling off then does exactly the same thing again, without being devious - your telling off didn't register. but teenagers do that anyway. You may find he's a touch immature - but again, that's teenaged boys all over.
