a friend of mine told me yesterday she's putting her 13 YO DS with ADHD in a camp with kids whose issues are along the same spectrum.
it's 5 days. I don't see the problem.
Well my first thought is looking at the camp, if this is a camp for children with ADHD, wouldn't they require a diagnosis?
What is that she hopes his eyes open to?
But in general, overnight camps....my boys have gone on them and have greatly enjoyed them in the past.
I also don't see the issue with separation or specialized camps, there are a number of them out there and sometimes it helps for kids to be with peers who are similar to themselves.
<kid the experience of NOT being the odd duck out.>>
friend's DS is 13 YO.
So the kids has no friends and you think that sending him somewhere that he may possibly make friends to an issue.
I see no problem with it.
you raise a good point too.
time will tell.
