Parents of ADHD Teens and Young Adults
New to this group
Hello everybody: I am new to this group, having been recommended by my son’s developmental pediatrician to join an ADHD blog and get some support!
I have a special needs daughter with pervasive developmental disorder, ADD, and Asperger’s characteristics, as well as a son with ADHD. I am obviously in need of support!
We live in a small town in the south, and when I try to advocate for my children within the school system, I am hitting many barriers. Today I was told by our county school psychologist that there is no such thing as accommodations to allow my son to play sports with failing grades. I wonder if anyone here has dealt with this situation?
I also wonder if anyone here is using an ADHD coach for their teen, and if it is working? Can you tell me how to go about finding this, whether insurance covers it, and what it costs?
Thanks for hearing me out!
