Lori:  My child has been recently diagnosed with ADHD. This last half of the semester has been horrible for him regarding behavior, several physical incidents w other children and staying focused. I finally decided to get a professional opinion and was correct in thinking he needs help. The teacher I think is very frustrated with him at this point. She has been told by the school that he needs medication for ADHD but I think she is just too frustrated with him to care. I feel like she avoids me at dismissal, is actually very dismissive towards me and generally just doesn’t want to deal with me or my child. Just putting this out there to see if anyone can help with how teachers should respond to a child with ADHD

There are lots of resources with ideas for channeling an ADHD child’s energy in a positive way. Here are two that I grabbed at random for you: https://childdevelopmentinfo.com/learning/learning_disabilities/teacher/

You may want to write a letter to the principal describing the type of teacher you think your child would do best with, so they can make a good choice for fall. With ADHD, it can be sooo helpful to have a dynamic, positive, well organized teacher.
