Parents of ADHD Children
School and Meds
I have and 8 year old boy, he was diagnosed in Nov.
He was falling way behind in school and reading was a big concern. After much thought we decided to try meds. Complete 180 within a month. He is A’s and B’s and he was even student of the month.
I am very worried about leaving him and medicine. My plan was to finish school year and take him off and figure something else out for next year.
Right now he is currently in a class of 30 kids.
I guess I wondering, if we take him off meds would it be better to put him in a class of 22-25 students?
It is also a charter school that is like a private school.
They demand more of kids and better behaved and more controlled in this environment. Would he be more likely to be able to focus in a class and school like that?
If there aren’t so many other kids to feed off of and get distracted as much.
