Working with Your ADHD Child's School
By Dr. Jeff Chamberlain, MD
From the Living With ADHD Blog Series
As a family doctor, I interact with children who have ADHD on a regular basis. One thing that often amazes me is how great a help some teachers, schools, and districts can be, while others seem like they actively trying to obstruct the child’s development!
Let's focus on strategies to maximize your child’s chances of getting quality help from the school system.
- Most people go into teaching because they want to help children. Your child’s school is predominantly filled with people who want to help your child and want your child to succeed.
- Budget and time constraints often spread teachers and administrators time, talent, and energy so thin that individuals do, occasionally, slip through the cracks.
- Your child’s teacher is trying to keep track of around 30 students.
- NO ONE CARES FOR YOUR CHILD AS MUCH AS YOU DO!
