ADHD son singled out in school

by Mary Jackson
(Hephzibah, Ga.)

My son was treated fine when he first began school. Soon after his Adhd symptoms got worse as we began the trial and error process with medication. When the school was told it did make things worse. He became singled out and teachers allowed students to make fun of him.


I actually witnessed it more than once. Talking to the teachers and principle did more harm than good. He started off a happy carefree child and by the summer it was downhill. He said he was a dummy-that he was stupid thats why they call him that. Believe it or not he is actually very intelligent like most kids with his condition. He learns quickly and loves math.

I wish everyone in our situations could do something to start another bill to protect them. The bill in existence is great but it needs to state what cant be done to them in the school systems. I wrote to my local govenor and am waiting to see what comments he has. I hope he takes my request to heart to protect our children.
