ADHD, in most cases, is a teaching disability. It means that your child learns in ways other than the way school chooses to teach. It is likely to disappear once your child is allowed to choose what, when, where, and with whom she wants to learn. Read Thomas Armstrong, Susannah Scheffer, John Holt, Daniel Greenberg. Remember that children want to learn and they know how.

  1. Mother Mary says:

    I have to agree. We found the constant complaints and urging to put the boys on drugs all disappeared when we began homeschooling. We knew there was something strange about it because the teacher's behavior complaints were thing we never saw at home. I also learned later that there is a quota for students labeled with any particular 'disability' in order to qualify for funding, so there is pressure on the teachers to diagnose a medical illness, something they are in no way qualified for. Also be wary of specific doctors and counselors recommended by the school. Especially in the case of counselors who may also be connected to the school.
