Transitioning ADHD and Dyslexic kids to a new school year

Parents are sensibly advised to provide ADHD kids with meds and increased organization methods prior to resuming school.
According to Dr. Harold Levinson, the vast majority of ADHD kids are also dyslexic. Thus they should be provided with proper tutoring and concentration enhancing methods all summer long when possible. Also, many children require meds all summer long to normalize their social, athletic and other functions and thus minimize vacation failures. There are no risks, exceptions aside.
Importantly, these ADHD kids with dyslexia should also be treated with inner-ear-enhancing meds and nutrients during the summer to advance their academic and other skills. In this way, they are prevented from easily forgetting prior information while getting a much needed jump start before resuming school. And their ADHD- based transitioning difficulties are minimized.
