Our expert says:
At least the diagnosis was made by a psychiatrist, presumably after a proper expert assessment, and not by a quack teacher !
It sounds as though the psychotherapist made a major error in seeing him together with another child, which, especially in early sessions, sounds a weird practice.
Again, I must emphasize - OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS HAVE NO ROUTINE PLACE IN TREATING CHILDREN WITH ADHD ! Teachers persist in recommending this far too often, almost as though they received kickbacks for each referral achieved. Maybe an educational psychologist can re-assess the boy, and maybe make further tests on his educational problems and recommend how to help here. Similarly, the psychiatrist may want to reconsider the specific treatment drugs and their dosages.
