To clarify I am in Australia so we begin a new school year in January 2016.
My 9 year old son has ADHD and has had a terrible time at his current school since Year 1.
The school will not properly understand his ADHD - it is hard in Australia because it is not a recognised disability such as you have in US which I feel is very frustrating. Therefore despite actually going to the paediatrician ( at immense financial cost) and actually placing him on Ritalin the school still will not properly assist my son - they punish him for little things that are related to his lack of control and understanding due to his ADHD and make his life awful.
It has been a very hard and disappointing year.
I have had enough and am moving him to a new much smaller school of 80 kids next year. We currently live over the road from his current school and next year I have to drive him everyday, but I hope it will all be worth it. My son's mental health is suffering !!
Has anyone else had to move their ADHD child to give them a fresh start ?
I would love to hear any one else's experiences of this.
