My teenager has ADD tendencies, although I am not about to label her ADD, she does have trouble focusing. She has been taking fish oil for a few weeks now and she has noticed a real improvement in her moods and focusing ability at school.
If you are going to try the fish oils, I highly recommend you combine it with High Vitamin Butter Oil, a substance that Weston A Price named Activator - X
The butter oil is very expensive, but it has been shown to substantially enhance the benefits of cod liver oil. My younger two have been taking it in conjunction with their CLO, they are not special needs kids but I can't believe how glowing and healthy they look.
More on raw butter, although this isn't what you asked it does relate to the High Vitamin Butter oil. These testamonials are from Organic Pastures
an organic raw dairy in CA. We only eat raw butter at home.

"My nine-year old son Christopher is eating about four tablespoons a day of raw butter, and absolutely loves it. He's always craved fat, and he can't seem to get enough of it! His body is very lean and muscular, and his skin is smooth and incredibly healthy. Something I have noticed since he started eating raw butter is how much clearer and sharper he is. His heightened awareness of other people's needs and perspectives has improved his ability to interact successfully in challenging social situations. He is able to tolerate and digest food much better, and he views the raw butter as a treat, because he likes the taste so much. After eating a tablespoon of raw butter, he always says, "I LOVE RAW BUTTER!" Thank you for creating such a great tasting and healing product!"

"Raw dairy products, especially raw butter, are an important part of my body ecology diet for Autistic children. There are elements in raw organic butter that cannot be found anywhere else. It is so important to healing the leaky gut and rebuilding the inner ecosystem. The changes I am seeing in Autistic children after raw butter and the other cultured foods have been introduced to their diet are dramatic."
