I have a 9 year old daughter with ADD. My wife and I have all but pulled out our hair because of the struggle we have had with the public school. My daughter does quite well when she's on the medication but she still has trouble getting things done and remembering things. We have had some trouble getting her to school on time, sometimes it doesn't matter what time we get her up or how hard we try to get her ready on time. She has also had to serve in detention because of being late, then she forgets to tell us that she has detention on a certain morning and so the school punishes her (and us) by making her serve two detentions instead. There must be some kind of accommodations the school could make to help us out. Has anyone else had the same problem?...There must be some kind of rights that the ADD child has for these kind of problems. Can anyone help me out???
