My son just turned 13 and I am having problems with his school administration. He has been tested in school and has been diagnosed this week with ADHD. He has not been prescribed medication yet, we hope it will happen soon. he was suspended today because he spoke out in class. I tried to explain to the Asst Principal that he can not control this behavior, she disagreed and would not budge. I have reached out to the superintendent and our pediatrician.. He sees a therapist regularly and she agrees that he needs supportive services.

I agree. My four year old is being treated like public enemy number one. He just wants the teacher's approval but she won't give any child approval. However, mine is too smart for her and thinking outside the box is being punished instead of praised.

I'm am beginning to suspect that my grandson, that I am raising is being targeted, by school faculty and by other students, as a trouble maker. He is 13 and has been diagnosed with ADHD since kindergarten and has been on medication since then. He is very impulsive and does things without think of consequences and is easily influenced to do things that get him into trouble. He is in trouble with the law and it is serious. He and a friend (no longer friend) were involved and though my grandson hasn't discussed the situation at school the other kid has, so it is all over school. Since then it has been one thing after anotehr that he has been accused of by other students and the faculty believe these kids and my grandson is being consequenced for things that they have no real proof of him doing. He was just accused of doing a drug at school in a restroom and he was searched and locker was searched and nothing was found on him. I advised that I would have a drug test done and when I got the results then we would talk with her about the accusations. I never said I would reveal the outcome of the test, but she expects the results. I told her that I had to consult with our attorney and I would take his recommendations about that. The principal has pulled him out of class for two days, on for 4 hrs and the otehr for about 2hrs, to question him further and drilling him about the drug test results. Still no proving that he has done anything wrong other than being in an "unauthorized area of school", so he is getting one day of in school suspension, his locker has been taken away from him, he is not allowed to go to any recesses having to go to the principal's office during those times and even eat lunch in the principal's office. He will have five seventh grade teachers supervising him as he moves from classroom to for class. I have been told by the principal that he is out of control, defiant, unwilling to follow directions, etc.and she is at a loss to know what to do but to do the above and convene an IEP and possibly put him in a resource class. Now, until the past two weeks I haven't heard one thing in reference to the complaint of his being out of control. So, I am now believing because of the trouble is in outside of school is known, he is being scrutinized to a degree that is overboard and that he is being overly restricted for the infractions that are based on hear say. I am so angry and fed up with this treatment of my grandson, I could throw up. I will have a representative with me, from Special Services, at the IEP meeting and I am hoping I can have our attorney present. I believe that this education system is more interested in behavior modification instead of teaching acadimics, the power that they are given is being misused and I don't see how they can expect these kids to respect or trust any of them, with this kind of treatment.

yes my 13 year old has severe ocd and the school is kicking him out i am thinking there should be rules or laws against the school for this they blame him for everything they just don't want to have to deal with him they give him out of school detention for anything i think just to keep him away from there.

IF his ADHD is severe, then considering another school isn't unreasonable. God forbid these teachers want to make their own lives better while they are teaching 20+ other kids!

Do you REALLY think it's fair to the other kids to get less focus from the teacher because they're constantly dealing with a kid that needs another course of educational action?

IT sounds like sending him somewhere that's equipped to handle him would be best for everyone.

Jeez, I didn't know the school system could actually do that either, I also question the legality of their actions. Very strange to say the least. Just you remember, some of our most brilliant people have ADHD. If he is diagnosed DO NOT sweat it. This disorder can be treated and your son can live a happy fulfilled life. You will have to make the decision between medicated him or using an alternative. I switched to a neurofeedback program and she loves to play attention! But, you will need to see what is the best fit for him and your family. Don't give up and don't give in, you are his biggest advocate and by your post I can tell you do care.

My son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 4, he is now 13 and on the verge on being thrown out of school. I have been asking that my son be statemented for years but always got the same answer "he wont get it, he doesn't need it" now he is being thrown out surely being statemented would have prevented this. He is 62ft 2" and teachers have been known to square up to him!! He finds it impossible to back down which results in yet further days internal exclusion! he is constantly being told that he is a big boy and cant get away with the same things smaller pupils would, how can this not be more frustrating for him!!! School have told me that the only options left are a PRU unit (naughty boys school) or a program set up for kids that truant constantly! My son is an intelligent young man whose life is going to be ruined because teachers do not know how to deal with him! I am soooo frustrated. On top of this my son was shot with an air rifle earlier this year and has lost the sight in his eye, the school do not take any of this into consideration!

This is a very typical case of ADHD. But, the teacher's attitude towards your child's limitation is a bit unfair. Maybe you should enroll him in a special school where his needs will be met fully. On the other hand, I have found about Music Therapy where children has improved classroom learning, exhibit more positive behavior and improve their disposition. Maybe you can try to suggest this to the teacher of your child or better yet, try it out at home.

Listen: ADHD causes an attention deficit. It DOES NOT cause a child to act like a jerk. If your child is not liked by anyone around them, then you need to reconsider your parenting. Perhaps you are allowing your child to use the (insert acronym here) as an excuse or a crutch.
I am a mom, and teacher of ADHD and other kids with various diagnoses. My stepson was told by his mother that he had ADHD and can't help his behavior. However, he only acts up at HER house, and at school, because this is where he is allowed to be a victim of his "disease." At our house, we have drilled it into his head, that he has control over his behavior, and that he is not "insane" as his mother has told him, and that we all have internal battles, his is just one of them. Guess what? He acts like a normal kid at our house.
I had a 5th grade student once tell me (after acting up in school for half a day - my first day with him) that he has ADHD, and can't help the way he acts, and if I'm not willing to accept that, then I am in for a rough year. So, I got in his his face, narrowed my eyes, and spoke very low and very slowly... I told him that HE is the one who is in for a very rough year, and that regardless of what anyone has told him, HE has total control over how he acts, and I expect him to control his impulses when he is around me. It is now halfway through the year, and I have not have ONE SINGLE problem from that child ever since. In fact, he is very well behaved!
So, please don't expect people to cater to your child the way you do. You are not helping your child, but hurting them. When they grow up, no job is going to forgive them for being obnoxious. They need to learn how to turn their extra energy into positive, productive energy, instead of negative, obnoxious energy.

I get what your saying. My son is having problems. School has worked with us some. But once in a while when another child is part of a conflict my son is the one pointed too.
He has been diagnosed with ADHD and just changed meds this week. In the mean time is also suspended for 3 days because of an outburst. Did I mention he is 7yrs old. I hope the new meds help but also don't want this to brand him for the rest of his school life.
