My 14 yr old is constantly being disciplined in school with no let up or change of directive. The school will not take on board the needs of a 14 yr old with ADHD and accept the current forms of punishment are not working and that they need to come from a different perspective. They are destroying him. How can I get them to ease up on him before they break him, or even consider ADHD as a real issue. I feel my hands are tied as his mom and I am considering moving him schools. Please Help!!!

i found liasing closely with the teachers helps. if you find a sympathetic member of staff they work with you and your child to resolve the many issues an ADHD child. The teacher we work with seems to be patient and as determined as we are to work towards acceptable behaviour from our son.

Your hands would feel tied whether they let up or not. My child has had the schools where there are no punishments, which made matters worse, because now he feels he can get away with anything and he is still breaking.

it's a hard call and you are correct, no matter where you live all schools primary and secondary (high schools) all treat our children the same as any normal child.My son who is now 16yrs old goes to an adult learning centre not a high school. I am located in Australia and if you can find one or something like that you may be better of. he is completing a certificate which will be the same as a high school pass and he is doing great as the adults are helping him and vice versa he is helping them.he had been kicked out of 2 high schools as they didn't know what to do with him re:discipline as nothing worked because they treated him the same as any child without the condition and they wondered why he just kept doing the same thing over and over again.also try and find a teacher who is willing to help and understand your son not just put it in the TO HARD BASKET.I suppose thats the biggest challenge is finding what I call your support network .teachers.friends ,family,priest who ever you choose to help him through all this.look good luck and keep your chin up.
