kumon vs. sylvan centers and help with adhd

I first heard of Kumon through this website and would like to know if anyone knows how Kumon differs from the Sylvan Learning Centers? My son has recently been diagnosed with ADHD can anyone also help me in finding the cure for him with it? thanks.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Our son was diagnosed with ADHD 5 years ago. This also helped us to understand why he was behind in school despite a high IQ rating. With IEP & 504, our son still was not getting ahead. KUMON was the answer to a prayer.It is no magic wand, but it has helped our son succeed. Sylvan was more of a tutoring program. We needed a program that would make our son an independant worker and learn techniques that would help him to achieve success in school.

KUMON is work. Some days we struggle with the required homework and it is repeatative. This summer we do bribe with Chucke Cheese coins and we left the homework behind on purpose during a recent vacation but we are very involved in his education. We looked into private schools, but they are not able to offer the Indivual Education Programs and provide him with the assistance he needs.
Sylvan would have been better if he needed assistance with an area of school. I could see using Sylvan for older students with an area that they struggle with...but they do not encourage the independance that we were seeking. Sylvan also had a lot of kids with thier homework in hand saying to me that they saved thier homework to do at Sylvan. KUMON is not a homework center, but a learning center of a new way to approach school.
ADHD will not go away and we are blessed to be able to be involved in our sons academic success. KUMON works for us and we have been doing this for 8 months. My son completes his tests at school in record time. He learned that at KUMON. He is learning that learning does not take a break and that he needs to be committed to himself.
I hope that this helps you as medication alone is not always enough to help our kids succeed.

We didn¡¯t use kumon or sylvan. We¡¯ve been using beestar a website offering weekly practices. The English language art and vocabulary programs are full of interesting stories, vivid pictures, about all real life word problems, challenging stuff to help kids thinking. Hope beestar will helps your kid. Good luck~~
