My son is 14 he has adhd, odd and suspected aspergers syndrome, he was diagnosed really late at age 14. My husband and i have managed his behaviour at home without medication until dec 07 when he started taking concerta xl. He is now attending his 3rd senior school, which is brilliant, but it only has around 6 students on any 1 day, he has learnt so much more in the couple of months he has been compared to years at his other schools. I have spoken to other parents with children with similar or the same problems and everyone agrees mainstream schools are not trained enough in dealing or teaching our children the government need to do more to accommodate them without making them feel like outcasts.

I'm so sorry! I truly believe it's as hard on the mom. We just want them to be okay. Sometimes I try to come up with a game idea to help. I told my 10 year old, "when your feeling like you are getting hyper, start staring at the teacher to keep your mind on the "right" thing. See how long you can stare before you blink". Make it a game. ADHD's seams to like short games. Or when your mind is in the crazy mood or after the teacher has called you down twice, try to sit on your hands and see how long you can do that. It may seam mean in a way. But it's just ways that he can train himself to recognize, and then refocus.

I am goin through the same thing. my son is 8 in the 3rd grade and he has major difficulties concentrating in class, he has an attention span of 3 mins if that. his teacher is constently writing him up i feel what is that gonna do but make her happy. i agree that the school may not wanna deal with him anymore and no matter how much i fight or take him to doctors they dont understand what it is hes going through

hi im "gumballs" daughter and i am 16 years old. I understand what your son is going thru because im been treated almost the same way at school, I have been diagnosed with dysleksia at the neuropsychologist when i was 9,...but the teachers really didnt seem to care,...they didnt take my condition in consideration at all,......i had to get diagnosed yet again 1 more time just to sattify their disbeleives, i am now getting analised for adhd and i hope it will sattisfy them this time,...but now its too late because of all the wasted years i spent in shcool with teachers that didnt give me the right education i was intiteled to,......ending school with low grades is the outcome of everything i faught for. so i understand what your son is going thru,......teachers that dont have time or energy for someone with xtra needs really have to update their education skills.

My son is ten and last year were having the same problems , he is hated by his school teachers he is made to stay in at play times while all the others are having fun . the teachers try to tell me that he is a trubble maker !!!!! and to answer your question having your son tested for A.D.H.D is the right choice but unfortunatly that is never enought for them . my son was medicated at the age of 6 and it has helped no end, but as far as it goes with the schools it never gets better the scools will do anything for an easy life . stick with it do whats best for your son . all the best x x x x your not alone .

Yes, my son is 26 and has ADHD. He was always in trouble at school. Most of the other kids did not like him, he did not treat girls nice at all. He started getting in trouble in Jr High. He was always disrespectful to me. Now at 26 he is married and has a baby. I took off work to keep my grandson today because his mother was sick. We bought our grandbaby a beautiful crib and the assembly that goes with it, matching sheet, pads, etc. My son is so selfish, the baby doesn't sleep int he crib yet. I went over to their house and he had put his huge bow case, a big box and had the crib loaded up with junk. Today when he picked the baby up I said would you do me a favor. Would you take all that stuff out of the crib. He cussed and said it wasn't hurting anything. I said it is dirty and we paid a lot for the crib and pads,etc. He went into a rage and said get the baby ready we are leaving and you will not babysit him again. I will pay someone. Yea you won't keep him again. The baby isn't even a month yet and he already trying to hurt me which he has done a lot. His ADHD comes out in rage. I have cried and cried. I never know if he will change his mind or not. He is such a disgusting person. I hope your son isn't ADHD. Your school should try and work with your son more and not give up on him. If he has ADHD or ADD you can do an IEP (individual education plan) and stop them from putting him in the hall and make them work with him. Good luck.

Each child is different in their own way. They should be treated and taken care of the best way for them. The school system may get a little pushy to make accusations but, you as a parent should make sure that thier tooken care of.

My son as a form autism the school he as just left had a small group of teachers that can only be described as bullys when he had bad days he was just shouted at. My wife who works as a kitchen assistant at the school was told by one of the teachers that she could F'''''''''ing kill him the worst day was when he was locked in a room on is own this incident had an averse affect on my son and he changed in the end they employed some one to stay with him in a very small room some of the Teachers who were not in this group of bullys where very upset when they heard what had happened to my son we tried to get help from the governors and we tried to get help from the county but everyone just passed the buck ,My son is a very intelligent boy we were told once he was the best at maths in the school .The good news is he as just started a School with a special autism base and so far he loves it and the Teachers seem to understand is problems. I have only scratched the surface of what goes on at this school and what we have been through many other Children are having the same problems with the same teachers at this school. Thank you for reading my story.

I just went to a thing today about school consolidation & kids at the extreme ends of the bell curve - like your son. The speaker had 5 grown children himself ranging from a physician to child with mental retardation & epilepsy. The key is that EACH child has special needs for the kids at the ends of the curves the services that they need may not be available in the main stream venues that we funnel our kids in. I would rejoice if they would fund a school that would meet my son's needs - rather than treat him just as how you outlined. I would encourage you to visit the school personally and formulate your thoughts on the school. I have to agree a fresh start somewhere else may be the right move - only you as a mother can tell!

I have read the book HOW TO RAISE A SON The writers are associated with a speak of Waldorf schools. These schools have a different method of education.

My son's kindergarten teacher didn't like him. I didn't realize how bad until his 1st grade teacher was completely different. His diagnosis is definetly a label that works against him at school.

I have worked in schools 27 years before I retired as an administrative secretary. The teachers don't hate your son. He may be ADHD. Before you move him to another school make sure you have him tested, that way, he will have a fresh start, and you may know the problem. Make sure you are open and honest with the teachers, and don't mistrust them. If you mistrust them, they feel uncomfortable and that may present problems. They have gone to university to become teachers, and they really like kids.

I have seven year old twins that have been kicked out of school, church and we have been kicked out of our home because of their behavior. And all I can get anyone to tell me is it s because of adhd.

i went thru something very simular. just get him diagnosed asap, and stand your grounds with the school. they are harming your child if treating him badly. let the school know you are doing your best, and they need to do theres. [email protected]

My son's school acted that way too!!! Finally after threats to give my son 3 day suspension for misconduct, I had said enough. When they diagnosed him, the school acted like they couldn't believe that he had ADHD. I am really tired of people that don't believe this disorder exists. I am glad to have found others that experience the same.

Yes I understad just what you are saying!! I have a 13 year od son and we have the same problem. We moved to a new home new school and in 5 months the whos school hates him!! My son soes have adhd and we choose not to put him on medication .... but I can tell you as soon as you get the diagnoses put him on a 504 plan thias helps ,they get more time for tests... back to the new school he is doing better with his work but just cant keep hands to himself, you have rights!!! what thwy do with my son is when he is not into working they have him run to the office and oick up a envelope or take something just to get him stimulated! But need to always be on him, he hates Socoal studies so we have a plan I have him read in class then I do the work with him no yelling... its like im in school all over but hes my son and i need to help hip!!!

My child was diagnosed with ADHD this year. I to am having an issue with my child’s teacher. Prior to coming to this school he had good grades, proved by his report cards. He had a wonderful teacher that worked with him at the school prior to the one he is having problems with now. Now he is failing almost every subject. She put him in a corner at the back of the class facing the wall from the minute he got to school until it was time to go home. I had a meeting with her and the principal and the meeting consisted of a whole hour on listening to her tell me what a failure and bad kid he was with a smirk on her face. I don't know what to do other then to home school him or move to a different school district.

god yeah my child was diagnosed at 12 with adhd he was misdiagnosed at 5yrs old. this is still happening to him and i am fighting to get him the proper help he needs.If he does have adhd dont stand for the way the teachers are treating him. I think its agianst the law for the school to threaen him like that if he does have adhd. 

Name: kate | Date: Nov 23rd, 2010 11:21 PM
me agian my son was turned down extra help in school due to stat. How was he misdiagnosed at 5yrs at the start? how did his second primary school miss this? no recall was ever done he received no extra help in his early education. His self esteem has been badly affected. my health has suffered had a breakdown last year feel so angry at education services and health professionals how do i regain 8 yrs of learning nothing at school somone has to pay could i sue them?Is there anyone out there who can answer this? But i am staying strong am still gonna fight fro him and boy i holding nothing back this time maybe go to the law. This is purely discrimination the way our chcildren are treated against their disability. I

Wow iam 11 and his teachers really must do hate him all i can suggest is telling the prinecple or telling youre son its ok. I have adhd 2 and my teachers were the same way but i got tested and got put on meds that will help him alot when he gets put on meds it might make him lesshungier/more.

Good luck
