I am mother of 9 year old ADHD boy. I request you to meet a child psychologist. do not opt for home schooling. That may aggravate the problem. Let him be among the children. Certain therapies may help to overcome the problem. Try to identify his areas of interest. Is he continuing in the same school? Is he a single child or does he have any siblings? Atmosphere at home should also be considered.
I insist , continue in a regular school only, make the school authorities understand his problem. Soon consult child psychologist.
We have done pshysicological assessment , also consulted psychologist thats when we were told he is having moderate ADHD. This was done at Rain Bow hospital. A neurologist is also seeing him at Loutus kukatpally. We have taken care of home environment. I know that is important. He is now going for dance and singing which he likes. He is not going to school now but the school is sending all the assignments and have told that he will be allowed to take his class one exam separately. I feel very bad that he is missing school activities and school life. He has been branded as the trouble maker and ADHD child in school by the school psychologist and my kid did not like it since all his friends tease him. They want us to put him in medication thats a big decision which i have not taken yet. I want to know if that is really helping. Please do mail me on how you are managing is there any sign of improvement with age? Since my kid age is 7 ( 26th October was his birthday).
Y dont u think of changing the school . Which school he is in right now? May I know which place u reside so that it
may help me to just schools. I feel it is not right on his school part. You can even opt for schools which has special educator facility.
Its always better to try for therapies than medication.
He is going to TATVA GLOBAL SCHOOL, Gajularamaram. The nearest schools will be some on the Bachupally road. I feel sad for my child because he understand he has problem and thats why he is being not allowed to go to school. He says that to any one who comes to my house. He does not understand the gravity of what he is saying but we feel terrible. As a parent you would understand how we feel within ourselves. He is not so bad socially and mingles around but likes to play a lot. Would be great if you can share how you are managing yourself. That would also help us to tune ourselves for betterment of our child.
As a mother of 4 yr old I can understand ur state as a parent, but Mr.Rajdeep pls don't create an inferiority complex in your kid..as ADHD is temporary and it is prevalent among most of the kids.Kindly don't underestimate ur son's potential and don't even let him do that. Your son will be totally alright very soon... Btw ADHD is highlighted in western countries but recently they have started diagnosing it in India.But imagine before this came to highlight every kid went to school happily unless he/ she is a down syndrome kid.
Anyways,Here are my few suggestions which I am sure that will definitely help your kid.
I know a very good school which will happily take your kid and nurture him well as I attended the school educationist seminar couple of times and I have heard good reviews from a couple of parents too.
The school name is Walden's path school.They have a website and they are located in jubilee hills(Priced at around 1.6-1.8 per annum). You can talk to the school coordinator Mr.Sunil, a highly knowledgeable educationist.Other than that you can try Vidyaranya , Sri ram Montessori too even they are good.
Apart from these,send him to fine art classes and keyboard classes which improves his focus and stability very much.
As suggested by srgo plz visit the schools mentioned. Early intervention is always better. Your child needs lot of encouragement. Change of school could reduce problems to the maximum. Dont worry he will b alright...
Thank you all for those kind suggestion. Those will certainly help us and my kid. We are going to check all those schools this weekend. Would also like to know any other schools near Kukatpally and Suchitra Circle?
