Parents of ADHD Children
I am new to all of this. I have a 6 year (turning 6 on Thursday), he is repeating Kindergarten again this year. We had such struggles last year, he has ADHD/ODD with sensory issues. I was called to the school repeatedly. We are on a waiting list for occupational therapy with his developmental delays. The new year has just began, and I have been called twice in the two days he has been there. I actually had to pick him the last day due to his behavior. He doesn’t want to listen, he can’t sit still, he gets over stimulated by all of the activities. He is currently on Concerta 27 mg and Ritalin 5 mg. He will throw fits, hit, throwing things, disruption of class. No matter what discipline we try, it doesn’t seem to affect him. The only one that seems to work is at home, I give him so “time” usually in a chair or sitting on the floor to pull himself together. Anyone have any other suggestions, I am at wits end. The school is constantly pushing for more meds, we have an intervention plan in place from last year, I just don’t know what else to do.
