I cannot comment on the relaxation sessions as I have not had the opportunity to witness the effects on concentration. However, should you attempt this route, I would greatly appreciate your experiences and thoughts. On the subject of the school wanting your child on Ritalin - and I am likely to upset some people here - they can want till the cows come home. The school as an institution has no legal right to demand, or even suggest, a child be put on Ritalin. If he has the concentration problem you say, this certainly must be addressed as soon as possible as the chances of it improving on its own are very slim. There are small changes the teacher can make to assist him, such as making sure he sits in the front of the class. There are natural products which claim to improve concentration, if you would rather go this route (products include EyeQ, Biostrath and ADDvance). I do suggest you speak to your GP or paediatrician to get his/her opinion. I know it is costly, but a third assessment by an independent practitioner may give you more peace of mind, and/or a more conclusive report to give to the school.
