Is Your School Great with ADHD, or Just Good with Them?

Photo compliments of break.things at Flickr.

 

Due to the social worker aspects of my previous jobs I have spent a crap-ton of time in schools working with kids.  I have watched kids have things that are unspeakable or highly inappropriate which is a major part of what led me to doing teacher education on "hard kids"....and even those that aren't.  As my work experience increased I found that more and more schools I set food in treated kiddos with certain disorders all wrong!

Were these educators and staff the devil incarnate.  Most certainly not!  They were doing the best they knew how with what they had been taught.  All the lacked was up-to-date non-conjecture research and information on just exactly how these kids need to be treated. Some of the educators were steeped in their traditions and did not listen but there were some beautiful souls, both male and female, that would listen to me and modify...with fantastic results (a one principle admitted to having a lot more hair).

 

What kind of school does your kiddo with ADHD diagnosis go to?  A great one?  A good one?  Or a crappy one.  Most think in pragmatics (black and white) on this subject.  Either the school sucks...or it's fantastic.  But the worst enemy to great schools aren't the crappy ones.  It's the schools that are perfectly content on being good.

 

Check out today as we talk about the Top 10 Things Your School SHOULD Be Doing with your ADHD kiddo.

Schools must create a better and more comfortable environment for children with ADHD. They should receive regular sessions with a psychiatrist to improve their condition. Moreover, with increased recreational activities, the chances of ADHD in other children will be reduced.
