Hi Yogeetha, I understand your problem. You can reach Dr.Akhila at 9741377148. She is a clinical psychologist with expertise on ADHA and other learning disabilities. She also runs a school for children with specific learning disabilities and ADHD. You can give my reference (Venutha Chanagiri of MAntri Gardens) to her. She is a very nice and potential lady. You can definitely take her help.
Is Dr. Akhila based out of chennai. Where is her clinic located?
She is based in Bangalore, near Nimhans.
hi venutha,thank u for ur reply.could not get back to u early b cos i took my son to boaz public school where the correspondent has reccomended me to take him to vidhyasagar school of learning .but my therapist strongly says he is normal and definitely must be in a normal school in the mainstream.education is not my criteria but i would like him to have a good peer group interaction.i am now trying for headstart international school .do u have any idea of schools that can understand his hyperactive tendency and accomodate him , yogeetha
Yogeetha, most schools donot about ADHD and the teachers are also not trained to identify a child as a hyperactive child. Also, hyperactivity is quite normal in children now a days. However, putting your son in a good school is absolutely necessary, as the regular schools will only give importance to academics, pressurise them and fail to understand the children.
Headstart is a veryboth good school. Since your son is already 3.5 yrs, it might be tough for you get in Headstart.
My son goes to Gear Foundation on Sarjapur road. The edcuation is through Montessori and Multiple Intelligence approach. I am very happy with the school and approach to education is very different.
hi ,my interview session with headstart was quite okay and they had a personal session with my son which was like a basic questionaire. iam asked to approach with applicaton in june.hope he does it this year.otherwise iam continuosly talking with him as he is not developed speech appropriatey.is there anything else that i should do besides making him play outdoors and regular o.t
try speech-language therapy too. since he is diagnosed with ADHD he must be having problems with focused attention, listening, understanding and following simple instructions .work on these areas. make sure he looks at you when you are talking to him. try activities like matching, sorting,colouring ,tracing etc to reduce his hyperactivity and improve attention span and language skills. till he joins in a regular school he should go to a school where he gets1on1 help for his problems.
Think carefully before you give your child any medicines!
I could write a collection of articles about my son’s behavior at school. During the classes he would be playing and laughing, between classes, he would often fight.
The fact that he was playing during the class, did not disrupt his studying, he was able to play and listen simultaneously, but it would bother with his schoolmates. I would beg, try to persuade, explain why he should not behave like that, he would be calm for a while, but then continue as usual. I went to school willingly and by invitation, consulted educators, psychologists, teachers ...
The general opinion was that the work in the classroom could not fully animate him, so he filled rest of the time with games. Teachers, indeed, could not do much about it. In the classroom with 30 pupils with different abilities, classes had to be adjusted for the average, for very good and very bad pupils there was not time.
Now he is Phd of Mehatronics
My son also has ADHD. I found a best therapist in Aminjikarai area. He is devoting himself for ADHD/Autism kids and giving very good results. THE BEST I ever found.
