hi,
he need all is behavior therapy.
use his energy level in a meaningful manner.
consult your occupational therapist for his restlessness and hyperactive behavior.
sugesstion: skating and swiming classes.
identify his interest and skills
initially, all approach him positively.
encourage his positive and avoid negative.
thumb sucking: may be due to (feeling insecure)
develop his confidence level and motivate towards his interest.
thank you

Hi
I wish to know why you say he is ADHD? it is your diagnosis or disgnosed by expert like psychiatrist?
The best institute to teach good maner is HOME.
Regarding the medication part if the medicines are not effective we need to reevaluate the child for his condition.
Knowing the family dynamics like, Nuclear/joint, parents educational, occupational, personality, attitute towards his behaviour by all family members, etc.
