Incentives work very well for children diagnosed with ADHD. Have you considered using a behavior chart to motivate your son to get ready for school? You can list the things he needs to do in the morning without being told to do them (try to keep it short and simple) in order to earn a reward that day. He might be able to earn things like extra time on the computer, playing a game with you, getting an ice cream, etc. You can work on shorter term rewards in the beginning and then gradually work towards bigger incentives for achieving his morning tasks over longer periods of time. It might also be helpful to get him an alarm clock so he can get himself out of bed in the morning.

I hope this helps!
