My sincerest apologies for the delayed reply, I do hope I will be able to give you some useful advice. You are 100% correct thinking that your step son should go for trauma counselling after what he has been through. Despite having a diagnosis of ADD, we do not the cause of his symptoms, and it sounds as though this is your concern. Perhaps you can have him re assessed after some time of counselling and see if there is any different diagnosis, or if you notice a change in his behaviour at home. Your step son can only benefit from trauma counselling. I am relieved to see he has someone who understands what he is going through.
All the best and kind regards.
