Maintaining schedules usually helps students with executive functioning issues. These include separate daily schedules, weekly schedules and monthly schedules.
Autism spectrum disorder kids need to interact with people as often as possible. They need to have their minds stimulated.
Many girls are overlooked for ADHD diagnosis and treatment. The reason is that even though they may struggle in school, they have good relationships with their peers and teachers like them. Many adult women are diagnosed only when they take their children to be evaluated and realize they may be suffering from ADHD too.
Many young girls and women have a subtype called predominantly inattentive ADHD. They may seem flighty or spacy but are not hyperactive. This might not raise a red flag with teachers or parents. As a result, girls often go without treatment until they reach adulthood. The use of ADHD medication among women ages 26 to 34 has risen 85% in just 5 years!
Tomorrow we will look at why girls are frequently overlooked for treatment.
Sometimes students struggle with homework because of learning difficulties, not because they don’t want to do the work. If you suspect this, act at once. Some options include contacting the teacher, calling the special education department and requesting a neuropsychological evaluation, you the parent working with your student at home, or calling a Y3K Tutor In Your Home tutor to catch them up and move them forward.
The written teacher evaluation and classroom observation information will help clarify the potential causes of a child’s difficulty in the classroom. In order to help a child, the teacher and the parents must consider many possible causes for the student’s difficulty. Without a careful evaluation, a child may be inappropriately labeled as a “behavior problem” or “special needs”.
An extremely important thing to note is the child should not be told they are personally being observed. People that know they are being observed tend to step up their game. The teacher should notify the students that someone is visiting the class to observe the teacher or may have a student in the class next year and seeing how they do things.
Is your student mislabeled as special needs or a behavior problem? Tomorrow we will address this as our series on classroom difficulty continues.
