Hi Ally. I don't have a whole heap of knowledge about adhd, but it seems like every second kid gets diagnosed with it, whether they have it or not. I personally think it's an excuse for bad teaching... not bad learning!! If teachers knew how to teach and engage their students then there would be less supposed adhd cases!
Ive got to disagree on this point- my son has had a great teacher and Ive spent soo much time an energy with him dealing with his out there behaviours I could teach the super nanny a thing about controlling behaviours and being consistant, but he is still struggling to gain a basic kindy education because of his inability to concentrate for longer than 2 seconds, although there is probably some misdiagnosed kids out there (as with any illness) its usually really hard to get your child diagnosed with ADHD, thats why Allys story is so strange, Ive been told a GP cant diagnose ADHD they have to have further assessment to get this diagnosis its not an easy way out Trust me!!
