Brief Answer: get him evaluated by pediatrician. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic. The cause for easy distraction, poor concentration and poor performance has to be evaluated for your child. The common causes for poor performance in school and education are impairment in hearing and vision, low IQ, learning disorders, and ADHD. Give him iron rich foods such as green leafy vegetables, food items made of jaggery and a balanced diet to increase hemoglobin further. And get him examined and evaluated by the Pediatrician or a child psychiatrist to look for any problems above described. There is no drug or supplement available to increase the scholastic performance, but if any underlying problem is identified it can be treated accordingly such as behavior therapy and some drugs will help to decrease the distraction, inattention in children with ADHD. Therefore I suggest you to consult the pediatrician for further evaluation. Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know. Regards.
