My 6+ year old son is a hyperactive high-functioning kid. He has classroom behavior issues. Academically brilliant, has very good communication skills in both English, Tamil and also has eye to eye contact. Partial rotor skill issues. Rides his bicycle, is very good at roller skates etc.,
We found out about his issues when we moved him from playschool for class 1 last June to an international school in chennai. The school gave us the admission, but came back to us in 2weeks asking us to appoint a shadow teacher. The reason cited was, the class teacher is spending a lot of time with him and other kids are not getting attention.
We posted an Ad, ran around and found a good shadow teacher but on the higher end. The situation started improving and he has shown a lot of progress. We have also started workign on Homeopathy medicine, his diet as gut has an effect on behavior.,
But the school has come back now mentioning he still has behavior issues, especially classroom talking and shouting at times and want us to withdraw his admission, inspite of we providing a shadow teacher. He does not understand the environment boundaries on what to talk at times. The issues are far minor than what they mentioned in the early days.
This came as a shock to my wife and me as we were convinced he was on the right track with lots of promises. We are looking out for schools in and around for his Class 2 Admission. We are also planning to talk to the management of the school. His psychologist and Doctors have strongly told us that he needs to be in a regular school as he has only behavioral issues, and that he can overcome if the school supports.
I really will appreciate if someone can point to inclusive schools or, schools that can understand kids like my son, in Chennai.
(we are based out of chennai)

Hello.....my 5.5 yr old son too has some similar behavioural problems. How long since r u using the homeopathy medicine? Does it show any effect or change? These children r advised to have gluten free food, camel milk, donkey milk etc etc which r highly impossible. I am totally puzzled.
We are working hard on the diet and do see a lot of changes. The changes happen slow and that is not keeping pace with school environment.
Can anyone please point to any school that is inclusive for class 2 admission ? We are willing to provide shadow teacher support as well from our side.
U r right. Can u please share some successful diet changes which u implemented. Esp...a substitute for milk
U can try Sharanalaya Montessori School at Nungambakkam.They do accept ur kid. It s a gud school who cares all types of kids in a best manner.
Please do get in touch with this school called Indradhanu, located in T Nagar.
This is one of the most inclusive schools I have ever seen in Chennai. The environment is nurturing and very gentle. The Waldorf principles that this school follows will go hand-in-glove with the Homeopathy you are already following.
I speak with conviction because one of my friend's son who suffered various schools before finding his peace at Indradhanu. Plus I have been following their methodology for a few years now (thanks to my sister who is a Special Educator). Not just children with special needs but I feel every child (and parent) deserves such a warm and friendly environment.http://www.indradhanuwaldorfschool.in/
