My 11 year old son has ADHD. He was diagnosed when he was 5 and has been medicated since he was 6, so this is nothing new. However, he is having a really hard time in school this year. He has a teacher that is in her very 1st year of teaching and I don't think that she knows how to deal with him. I've talked to the office and they seem to be on the teachers side and just think that my son is 100% of the problem, even though he went to that same school last year and didn't have any problems (he had a teacher that had been teacher for like 30 years#. I'm not nieve to the fact that he can be difficult sometimes, but I don't think it is all him.
Anyway, on to my question. My state offers an online school program that is through the school district. He would still be considered as being enrolled in public school and could go to back to a regular public school next year if he chose to, but all the classes are online and done through an interactive classroom setting. I am torn as to what to do. Should I pull him out of his school and enroll him in this program? Has anyone with a child with ADHD ever tried something like this?
I think he will do much better 'cause he won't have the distractions that he would have in class, he could work at his pace #he is extremely intelligent), but most of my family is against it. But yet they are not the ones that have to deal with it, KWIM? I just need some advice from fellow parents of kids with ADHD!!!
Sorry this got so long, and TIA!
