Parents of ADHD Children
My son is really struggling in school this year. Between his anxiety and ADHD, he cannot cope in a traditional classroom. There are plenty of things that factor into this and we are terrified the behavior won’t stop. We are terrified he will end up expelled because his behaviors have been very aggressive (kicking children, throwing chairs/books/whatever he can get his hands on). Right now he spends most of his days in the principals office where it is quieter. We do not have an IEP or 504 but are going to start the process; however, I am wondering if anyone has experience with a Montessori school and if that should be something we check into? I am not sure he would do well in that environment but I also know he’s not succeeding in a traditional classroom either.
