Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or the Disorder of our Public School System?

Storyboard Text

  • Are you eating your breakfast?? It's time to go!
  • Step One: Recognize that your child has symptoms of ADHD such as excessive impulsivity and activity, inattention, and difficulty controlling behavior within at least two settings.
  • Step Two: Speak with a trusted pediatrician about the "diagnoses" of his preschool teachers and use their help to determine what is right for your child. 
  • Step Three: In elementary school, advocate for your child in regard to classroom placement. Request teachers who use positive discipline and have strong classroom management skills.
  • Step Four: Advocate for tools and accommodations in the classroom that you believe are appropriate for your child's development.
  • Step Five: Watch for ways to build your child's self-esteem and allow him to take risks. Have patience as your child transitions from adolescence and delight in his growth.
  • Step Six: Dream about a day when our public school system views ADHD as a difference in cognition versus a disorder and sees the power in teaching to different learning styles & respecting our children's differences.
