ADHD/ADD/Reading Disability information sharing

Group Created by dspenc8888

Due to the lack of support in the school systems and the misinformation given by teachers to parents, I wanted to see if there are others out there that need information on the TRUE disabilities associated with ADHD/ADD and have a place to share good experiences and what works with others.

    Hi, I have ADD and my 9 year old has ADHD. She also has a language and reading disability. I know its frustrating and hard, but the best advice is to get connected with others, and do a lot of research so that you are informed and prepared to help your child with the best resources and tools out there.

    Hi, not only do I have 2 sons both living with ADHD (ages 9 and 5), but I am also a SpEd Teacher. So, I guess you could say, "I eat, sleep and breathe this way of life!" There are great days and not so hot days! Having a teacher who works with you and your child makes all the difference in the world. But, I will say on the flip side, knowing that having a parent is part of that same team, too, makes a child's learning experience even more successful! I look forward to sharing with our group!

    Hi all, I have TWO sons that have been diagnosed...my 14 yr old has ADHD & my 10 yr old has ADD. It's a tough road to travel down, and I just got in a huge mess with the 10 yr olds school, because they didn't even have it in his file that he has ADD....it's still a mess & I'm trying to get it cleared up!

    Hi I have a 6 year old who hasent been diagnosed yet but I know he has adhd.I'm at my wits end with the school district where I live.they keep moving him one school to another because the teachers can't handle or don't want to handle him.we keep having meetings with the school board on where to place him but no one can come up with any placements.when one teacher gets tired of him they say hee needs a change in special education program. I don't know what else to do to get ma child the proper help he needs.I'm even willing to relocate in ny state to any place that may have a school for adahd children or a school that knows how to handle adhd children.
