That is why I finally pulled my son out of school, & homeschool him. But, I know not everyone can do that, & why won't schools learn to deal with this??
Back when my son was in school, & they had what was called ESE awarness week, I had his ESE teacher give the teachers some info about ADHD. I had photocopied something from a book, written by a mother, addressed to the teacher. It pointed out so well, all the symptoms, needs, characteristics, etc. of the ADHD child & little things the teacher could do to help the ADHD child. It was so well written!!
The response from the teachers was total disinterest!!! Most teachers don't like even having to deal with the ESE teacher. I think all teachers should take a course on ADHD & learning disabilties, etc. They need to start learning these things, instead of taking it out on our children!
Sometimes all that is needed for these kids is understanding from the teacher, & redirection. If teachers would do that a lot of things could be avoided!
Maybe if we all started showing up to school with our lawyers, (as I have known some to do,& got great results!)we could get our message across!!
Sorry, but I just needed to vent!! I feel so bad for these children who get punished for things that could have really been avoided, if only the teacher had been understanding!
