Dear Parents and or educators,
Since my son has entered highschool I have had some major resistence with his teachers in recognizing that some of his learning and behavorial problems are attributed to him being an ADD student. We found that it is less frustrating and helps him to be more organized if he writes all his assigments on a word proccessor. I am running into teachers who feel that it is important to have him write his assigments so that he can improve his penmanship. His English teacher wants him to write his next written assignment by hand. My feeling is why frutrate him ? It is hard enough for him to keep his thiought process focused on one subject. Why frustrate him with trying to write lelgible. I also find that his creative ability suffers. It takes him to long to write. What are your thoughts out there? What ahs worked for other parents with ADD teenagers?
