ADHD at School

My son doesn't listen.

My son 10years old,does nt listen at school,and distructing other kids,laughing,not obeying instructions,no writing whn others r writing,last1 to finish his work,not submiting hs work to be marked. His teacher alwayz calling me and complaign,m tired coz ma son does not listen help!


My son is 9 and has ADHD. Now that he is on meds and is seeing a therapist his now listen most of the time. He still needs to work on his emotions, but I feel confident that we will get there. Have you taken your son to see a therapist? Is he currently on any meds? Does the school know about his condition, if so does he have an IEP? I hope this helped.

First take your son to the clinic and see a doctor who can help you with your son. Then write a note to the school saying you want your son to be evaluated for
Special Education services.  Give the letter to the principal.  Help your son be as organized as possible. He wants to be successful and you will be the one to stay behind him.  Encourage him to do his best. Get the school and your community involved with his success.

Gm take ur son to the doctor and get him tested for ADHD.  It sound like he may have I ADHD . Also when school starts back try to get the IEP for him. you will have to right a letter stated that ur child need help. if he failed any subject or got a D in subject last school term put that in the letter and give it the principal. My son on have ADHD and he take me meds.
