Accomodating adhd on the crct
Everything, and I do mean everything started turning into a power struggle between the two of them.
The principal acknowledged that parents had complained about this teacher, but felt the criticism was unfair, and asked that she and her son give him a chance. Well, it turns out this teacher was a wonderful fit for her son. The teacher was strict but provided the structure her son needed.
It hasn't been easy but learning coping mechanisms (both parent and child) and finding ways to nurture the positives of the relationship have been most helpful. I need a "how best to talk to the school" instruction manual. I made suggestions and we decided to do weekly meetings. The intention of this meeting was to build back up my son's self-esteem and for the teacher to see the efforts he was making.
:confused: Does it get easier when the kids start having more than one teacher? I decided to stick it out and trust that it was meant to be. So he had to say three things he think went well that week and one thing he wanted to work on in the coming week.
So, for that reason I've never asked for a change of teachers, except once.
Steven's 6th grade teacher, who I will say seems like a good teachers, but a horrible match for Steven, for lots of reasons, but most of it boils down to they were just too much alike.
