School's A Comin.....and I'm not ready

Wednesday, July 24, 2013

My kids will begin school in a few weeks...and I am totally unprepared. I had planned to have my daughter evaluated for ADD by the time summer break ended and I have'nt even started due to financial reasons. She had struggled through her 5th grade year in language and math(her math teacher was NO help and was honestly a bully to my child and other students in her class).

I'm venting about my concerns about not being prepared. This is how I am feeling NOW...hopefully this will change in a few weeks when the time comes.

    I hope you can find community resources to have your child tested. There are SP teams for teachers here and they may know also. Also your community hospitals or children hospitals have resources as well. It may not be too late. emoticon

    I know that the system makes one fight and stalls from getting this help, but it is worth it.

    Hope things look up!

    Does the school offer testing?

    You have some time to get ready. Try to get something accomplished every day that will move you toward a feeling of accomplishment. Hopefully the teacher this year will be nicer.

    Hey take a deep breath....I went thru that last year with my youngest step-son.He doesn't have ADD. It was the teacher. On his test he done well, but in class he sucked. After countless meetings with her and No help I took it to the school board. They gave him a toutor to see where he was and as it is he is fine.No problems. Now on to a new teacher this year!!!!!! It will get better

    You still have time to get prepared if your kids start school in mid-August. Good luck to you!!
