Children with ADD/ADHD have to be diagnosed first. This is something that would need to be diagnosed by a mental health professional. I suggest on getting the mental health evaluation outside of the school. You will also need to have a FULL EVALUATION of the child by the school, which is absolutely FREE. You can start the process simply by sending a note to the teacher or assistant principal asking to have the child evaluated. Make sure you have a copy of this notice. They have 30 or 45 school days, sorry I don't remember the exact time frame, to evaluate the child. The evaluation will show what academic level the child is on so the parent and the school know what type of services are needed for the child. Once all is complete the school will have a meeting with you. In this meeting there will be the child's teacher, social worker, parent advocate, psychiatrist, the parent(s) and anyone else that evaluated the child. In this meeting an IEP, Individualized Education Program, will be presented to the parent(s). The IEP will detail all of the tests during the evaluation and the results of such tests. There will be goals discussed during this meeting as well. Make sure you, as the parent, understand what they are talking about. If you don't understand or disagree with the IEP, DO NOT SIGN IT. Feel free to ask all of the questions you need to ask and request what you, as the parent, feel would work best for the child. If you agree with the IEP, sign in it. The school will provide you with a copy of the IEP. Make sure the school is giving the child the services described on the IEP. If the school cannot provide the services they will give you a voucher or referral to get the services. As for the ADD/ADHD part, if the child is diagnosed with any mental health issues, I suggest on getting counseling for the child and for the family. This will help the parents understand how to help the kid. This will also give the child a voice. Good Luck!
