My potentially ADD child is at a K-5th Montessori public school. His pediatrician questioned the structure of the program and suggested moving him to the traditional public schools. He loves his school and I am torn on moving him. Anyone have more experience with this? The benefit of the Montessori program is there are methods of teaching him that use more manipulative's and visuals that I think he gets a better understanding from. The public schools here use a traffic light system of warning a child that acts out moving from first warning at green to off to the principal at red. I could see him at red a lot the first few weeks and the Montessori teachers have more constructive approaches. We are at the end of a Kindergarten year.
