we found out my son had adhd at the age of 4. he is a awesome kid but i have many concerns so im doing some investagating. he is repeating kindergarden this year and is still not improving as much as he should so we had so there was some test done like a IQ test and now they are saying he may be mentally retarded. now im thrown for a loop. im not a blind mother i know my son has a learning disability but he is so bright and is more hands on. if he works one on one he can get it but in class he stuggles. so my problem is we are trying to get him in special classes to help him but im affraid if this quack doctor puts that he is mental will he be getting the right schooling???? the doctor who test him b4 tis one said that he was very intelligent but the adhd was gonna be the hurdle to overcome. so if anyone can give me anwsers im needing them, i cant cry nomore i wanna see my boy grow to the best that he can be.

First start talking to his pediatrician and they are no help then find another who specializes in ADHD, second you need to speak to the principle of the school and let them know whats going on. I was relectent to tell anybody because i didnt want them looking at my son all weird but you know what! we need to be advocates for our kids and if you feel that he just needs extra help then look for it in other ways.

Parenting ADHD Kids - Creating a Positive Learning Environment for ADHD Children

Each child is unique and wonderful in his or her own way. Learning how to parent a child with ADHD in order to prepare them for school is a challenging but rewarding experience for parents. Home may be a safe haven for children, but once they get to school, they get labeled a lot of things because of their ADHD. Creating a positive learning environment for ADHD children at home will help prepare them for the people and challenges they will encounter outside the home.

First thing that parents must remember is that they should focus on knowing and loving their children the right way. The people outside your home will either misunderstand children or oversimplify ADHD kids rather than really get to know them or help them get to know themselves.

Getting the basics right

The basics of a positive learning environment for ADHD children is pretty simple. Children need to have a connected childhood. They must feel a positive affinity to the people, places, and things that they love. When children have a healthy connection at home, it helps them a lot against feeling rejected or misunderstood by the people outside the home.

Children who enjoy a connected childhood will also lead to healthy activities at home. For children with ADHD, play is a very important component of a happy home life. In fact, integrating play into academic activities creates a positive learning environment for ADD/ADHD kids. Integrating play into a child's daily routine, whether he/she has ADHD or not, promotes an attitude that makes a child want to do more and be more. They look forward to activities and doing things with their family.

It's a hard way to get where you wanna be,we fight since 3years.I don't know where you living but people are doesn't care alot where we are.They wanna treat him like'normal'and punish him for trouble without understand him.Our son is 8,diagnosed at 4 but the problems were there earlier.Long story short.
We never wanted to give him medication but it helped him to concentrate,he started to draw and his writing got better.He is even hands on.If he is a lefthander don't train him to the right hand!A right hand person needs to teach how to tie shoes in the opposite way.There are so many 'small' things which are actually big.
