at my son tobys school they have this room called isolation and they have to stop in there all day every day no play time to burn his energy off he even had his dinner in there and this went on for ages him being in there instead of helping him they punished him cos they didnt understand adhd and they should its 2008 its not like theres nothing to be found about adhd it makes me so mad and now they are trying to put him into a all asian school im not racist at all but hes just gonna get bullied and picked on even more than he has at this school they should have to go through training courses on adhd should teachers

i had that same problem with one of shawns teatchers too we went in to the school and lost it too.Its very frusterating isnt it . It feels like all we have been doing is fighting for are son for what we think he desurves.

Well I had a teacher who put my son in the cornor facing the wall when he was in 2nd grade. Made me so mad made him feel like he was useless. My other son goes to 2nd grade next year and I have decided she will not be his teacher cause she just does not know how to deal with ADHD children. I will not have my son sitting secluded from the rest of the class. That certainly does not help them to learn.

i know what you both mean my son toby is now 12 but hes 5ft 10 size 10feet so hes a very big lad and has just been excluded from school no other will take him but to honest the school didnt want to know about his adhd they just put it down to him being bad and everytime something went wrong they uspended him or sent him home and thats what he wanted so now im trying to find a school that will understand adhd ive also got a daughter morgan who 6 and i think shes got adhd too its bedlam every morning trying to get everyone ready for school
