ADHD at School
Grade based on Remembering??
My 15-yr-old son is failing freshman English because he can not remember to turn things in… It’s not the big stuff that’s giving him problems. He is FAILING because of zeros on forgetting to turn in a signed progress report AND forgetting to keep up with 5 warm-ups for the week and turning them in on Friday. Really??? It’s all Literature based so lots of reading and comprehension, which is not easy for my ADHD/dyslexic. But he enjoys reading and stories and did GREAT Romeo & Juliet—Shakespeare, for goodness sake!! But he’s failing because the teacher refuses to figure out a system that works for him… How is this FAIR???
