Hi all,

My son is studying L.K.G in a small school near my home. He is a ADHD / ADD kid, we found his problem when he was 1 year 6 months and from there on he is going to various treatments including OT. Now he is 4 years 6 months and we have found drastic improvements. He has amazing memory power but he has few behavioral issues / speech clarity problems. Also if he is not engaged he will not sit in a place. Academics wise he is very good.

Now we are looking for a normal school in Chennai which accepts him for 1st standard. We dont bother about the location...need your guidance and support.

Thanks YPVS - I will check. Is there any other small schools accommodating ADHD kids?
4sfam - There is one Shakthi center at camp road (towards agaram then) doing this OT training. My son was going to that therapist for few months, they are doing good job. In which School you have put your son?

4sfam - Yes we were following a diet prepared by a Siddha doctor (Dr. Parthiban), it is similar to GFCF diet. However now we have left it.

Currently he is not in to any treatments. Btw, what is the school name? Are they taking care of your kid?
Alex - If you are in Tambaram, there is one skating school at Sembakkam, they do have the swimming pool there. Apart from that, there is a skating class for Autistic / ADHD kids happening every day at Valluvar Kottam (Next to Nungambakkam Tennis stadium). The swimming classes for the Autistic / ADHD kids is happening at league club (Arumbakkam).

Hi I am also from Tambaram. My son has been diagnosed to have ADHD. I do not know what to do now. World has become dark for me no. Please give me some hopes and inputs to recover my son from ADHD. He is 3 years old

sridhar91 2019-06-23 15:33:58


Krishnaprasanna sorry I did not check this forum for a while.. Eventually I forgot my user I'd as well. Do let me know if you still need any help. Karthiga.. I perfectly understand your concern but this is not the end. My son is now 9 years old and he is almost on par with the other kids. All we need to give is discipline and vigorous therapy. Socialize with other kids. ADHD, ADD can't be cured rather we can bridge the gap. It's like wearing power glasses if you have short or long sight. Me and my wife was in similar situation like yours 8 years ago.. Now we are almost alright.

Hi Friends, My son has ADHD. He is currently studying in mainstream school(class 3), but not able to focus, due to which lagging in studies. I am planning to move him to inclusive schools. Can someone suggest good inclusive schools in Chennai which accommodates such children. It will be a real great help for me. Please suggest. Thanks.

sri2005 2022-01-10 18:29:55



Instead of taking him out of mainstream school try to appoint a shadow teacher for your son. Look out for a teacher who can take personal care of your son at school. Discuss with school authorities they may agree. changing the school is not a good option i feel. 


Tintin2013 2022-01-11 18:45:31


Thank you so much Prabhavmom.. I am also double-minded. Before lockdown he was in 1st class and then itself the school did not agree for Shadow teacher. But was complaining that he is not attentive. I too observe he is not attentive in online classes and even he does, he doesn't understand what's going on in the classes. Due to Covid I teach him after the school..But in regular school and all kids well grownup in his class, I am quite apprehensive how its going to work out? If they decide to send in the mid of the year how it will turn out? These are the questions I am deliberating and considering the change of school which accepts and teaches him during class hour will probably work out better.

sri2005 2022-01-11 20:54:12



 Early intervention is always better. Good if u find a school as per your requirements. Have you met any child psychologist? Please consult . Follow doctors instructions. May be any therapies might help . Identify your child's interest and nourish it. This will also help.
Also i heard homeo treatment at an early age does show positive results.
Don't worry. I can understand your state of mind , the tension you are undergoing. But consistent therapies and one to one sessions will be of great help. Don't lose hope. All the best.


Tintin2013 2022-01-12 11:46:13


Hi Prabhavmom.. Thanks for your kind words..I am taking him for therapies, but on and off now due to covid. Will consult for homeopathy, which I never tried.. Thank you once again.
