Thank you for the response I mailed to you.
we shall like to meet you personally in September as we most probably will be coming to Bangalore at that time.
My 11 yr old son was diagnosed with ADHD a few years back. We are in Delhi and He goes to a big banner school in an inclusive set up. Due to his hyper activity and behavior issues, school failed to identify his learning needs which further led to a huge academic lag.
I have to find an appropriate school for him now as we have been asked to withdraw him by December. Can you please help in identifying one.
Will really appreciate if we can talk in person.
I don't know about Delhi schools well. We can still talk. I would like to you send me his reports to email@example.com first. I will go through it and then we can talk. It will be better
As per Right To Education Act, all the schools need to be fully equipped to handle all the children having learning disability or adhd or any other issue. It is highly unfortunate that the schools failed to even appoint a counselor in order to save money. expecting such money hungry schools to take care of children is a distant dream. Homeschooling is a better option where the child can learn as per his or her own pace. At the end of the day, what matters is happiness. In case any of you know any homeschooling group in Delhi, pls respond.
I just joined thisthe group after browsing a lot in the net. First of all felt happy to see many sailing in the same boat as I do. Secondly painful to see our kids suffering a lot under the term ADHD.
God knows all as he created them with such apcl needs.
I have a son of 12 yrs he was diagnised ADHD when he was in his class 1. I started giving him Ritalin after consulting peadtric psychologist. Gave him few occupational theraphy too.
We were in Dubai for 8 years and I continuef the, medicine and he was in normal school with lots f complaints of behavioural issues and academics learning disabilities.
Now for the past two uears we have shifted to Kuwait an useless country where I dont find any betr medical help for my son xcpet the concerta medicine.
He s in class 6 now in athe regular CBSE school. I feel t s a torture for the child with lots f pressure to cope up with the curriculum. The spcl schools here r very costly that an indian patent couldn't afford.
I am a teacher in the same school where my son studies and thus gets certain things done for him. I have a minimum of 5 ADHD and Autism children mixed in each of our calsses in our school.
My query s I dont want to continue any more with the CBSE torture for my son. I would like to settle in India only for the sake f my son. Now I am pregnant 9months and every day it s a tension dealing with my son's behaviour issue right from morning till night
I need the advise of where should I shift in India to put my son in a gud school which cd give him simple curriculum with treatment inclusive.
Pls help me to decide.
My heart goes out for you. It's very tough and I can't even begin to imagine how it must be for you and your son right now.
ADHD is over diagnosed these days. I am not saying that the diagnosis done was wrong, but as a practising psychotherapist I see doctors and psychologists diagnosing all children showing fidgetiness, poor focus with ADHD and begin medicines. They don't look into the environmental, emotional or lifestyle reasons which could be causing ADHD symptoms in the child.
A psychologist cannot prescribe medicines. Please email me the reports at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also share what are the behavioral issues you are facing with him.
As your son is reaching teenage, he needs a lot of support, counselling to handle his emotions. Special schools will perhaps do more harm at this point. Severe ADHD (clinical) with aggression needs a different approach. ADHD symptoms need different approach.
Usually the path that is suggested is:
- consulting psychologist/therapist without the child- finding out the root cause
- observation/assessment in the next meeting if required
- clinical assessment from RCI certified centres to get concessions/support from school
- meeting psychiatrist for medication if needed
- therapies if needed
