Thanks for sharing. That is great that medication has made a massive difference. It is so nice to hear that your son has such a passionate love for sport. Hockey sounds like a great way of keeping him active.
If you feel unsure about the diagnosis that your son has received, we recommend getting a second opinion or discussing this with your local practitioner. Talking to a psychologist can be highly beneficial too, as they can help you discover ways for your son to focus while playing hockey that is relevant to his needs. I was also wondering if you have talked to his coach about this and whether they have any suggestions? For example, he might benefit from shorter bouts of speech. There also might be strategies that he can use to keep his focus down the other end of the field while waiting for it to come down his side.
