My son has been struggling in school for 4 years now. He has had trouble since Kindergarten and is now in third grade. He absolutely hates school. He has had good teachers that seem concerned about him however, they always say the same thing. “He is a really sweet kid but does not pay attention”. All his report cards come back with needs improvement. My husband and I have him in Kumon which is a math learning center to keep him up on his math so he does not fall behind. We do see a lot of traits the teachers are seeing at school. He is easily distracted and he really does not seem to pay attention or be able to follow multi level tasks and has to be reminded constantly to stay on task. He also has a lot of anxiety and when he is not on a “normal schedule” he worries all day and is very distracted. We don’t know what to do and feel defeated. I asked his teacher how he was doing today and she told me he does not seem to be listening still and is distracted. When he goes to his SSD class to get help they have to re-teach him what the teacher already taught every day. Can you help us? We really do not want to put our child on medication for ADD without being sure it is what he needs.
