In Reply to: California schools that specialize in kids with ADD posted by D. on November 03, 2000 at 20:49:32:
: My 9 year old step son is tearing our house apart. I am ready to leave my boyfriend because of his ADD diagnosed son. His son is a holy terror in counselling, seeing numerous doctoros, neurologists, specialists, the list goes on. We have decided to go drug free, choosing instead to try to change his behavior in other ways. We have realized the public school system is NOT cut out for a kid who needs constant attention, and his grades are suffering. His teacher cannot give him the constant one on one attention he needs to be redirected to his studies, she has 19 other kids to watch and take care of, too. Does anyone know of any schools in California that can give him the kind of attention he needs? Military schools are not right for him, and special education schools are for kids with mental defects, he's not defective, just the opposite, he's very intelligent. HELP!!
