Hi polkadotty
So pleased the apt went well, such a nuisance that they never received the report! It must be a relief that your grandson is now going to get the best support possible, and it must be a tremendously encouraging and a great weight lifted for both you and your daughter to know that the road is not looking so rocky anymore...
Wishing you, your daughter and grandson a smooth and positive journey through all of this ... :hug:


Seraphina :)

Our own little Angel Alfie is having his diagnosis and medication appointment on 5th August......it would have been 4 months ago had the school got their act together and provided the necessary info, each time saying it had been sent...to where? who knows ....however...........it would seem now all is in place. The doctor has said his adhd is severe and he will be medicated but she was needing to hear from the school if they think its all adhd or if there is a learning disability as well. Finally we now know from the school that his learning ability is much better on the days/times he can concentrate better. They have also identified he responds better learning with an adult either one to one or in a very small group. They have put these things in place already and its helping a bit but not enough on its own. So not really moaning about the school as such, just would have been nice to get all this in before now. Doctor seems lovely though and we are grateful that at least he will have all in place before his next school year in September. He has met his new teacher and is happy, he has also had a change in class, new class mates, I think a calmer class.

Thankyou everyone who has thought and helped here.

I work with kids who have learning disabilities, and one of the most frustrating things is a lack of staff trained for kids who learn differently. I hate even calling it a "learning DISABILITY", because, clearly, these kids are learning ALL the time!! It is good to hear you guys have a good feeling about his teacher... rapport is half the battle! best wishes to your Alfie!

With ADHD, the primary question is: is the overactiveness (at that moment, for it can shift) a matter of seeking stimulation or regulating imput or being overstimulated.

Important to know: Whatever stimuli we produce ourselves, is easier to process. So if the classrooms acoustics is loud, too much info, overstimulating..chances are an ADHD kid will máke it's own noise to process. (Nothing dim about such tactics btw ;-) ).
Overly fidgeting or walking around, can the body telling the kid there is too little info coming in, if it were to just sit, it actually would loose concentration, for the system now puts more effort in finding new solutions to the problem of understimulation..
though it can also be an overstimulated kid, trying to soothe it's system by gross or finer motor skills..
Really observing a kid, is very enlightening!

A sensory integration specialist can do a test to see what the basic responses are to certain stimuli. Highly useful info for class, kid and all around it!

Indeed, an attentive and respectful teacher can mean so much!

Love!

prc ....we totally agree. Alfie learns at his pace, it doesnt need to be at anyones elses pace IMO.

Seeds..........its a minefield to us. They have decided he does not have a learning disability as they call it and that he is being held back by the severity of his adhd. All his symptoms are severe and he ticks all the boxes on the symptoms list. I think there was about 18 of them on the form. Both the school and my daughter filled in seperate forms not seeing each others and they both had identical info/answers. His appointment for medication and treatment plan is on the 4th August. As his grandmother, I will be learning along side my daughter, the techniques/suggestions given to help him manage this and improve things for him. His dad will also do the same. Its team Alfie here all ready to do our bit to help in any way we can.
