ADD/ADHD Help - Finding The Right School

ADD/ADHD Help - Finding The Right School

The diagnosis is in place and a plan of action established at your child's school, but he or she still struggles day-to-day to stay focused. Your child’s grades are declining and now behavior issues are surfacing. Even with an aide, you wonder if the crowded classroom is a form of torture for him most of the time. The thought breaks your heart. You know there must be a solution out there... somewhere.

Attention Deficit Disorder/Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) is becoming far too common amongst our children. The most recent statistics (2015) from the National Center For Disease Control and Prevention states that approximately 6.4 million children aged 4-17 years-old in the United States have an ADD/ADHD diagnosis. That is an alarming statistic, but let's stay focused on your child. Your child needs a learning environment where he or she can thrive.

Imagine a school that:

  • Provides a structured 1:1 classes limiting outside distractions
  • Gives clear learning objectives that are defined & measured at the beginning, middle and end of each session
  • Encourages and nurtures open communication among students, teachers, and parents
  • Incorporates practical skill techniques, as in strong time management and organizational skills, directly into the lesson plan
  • Delivers a variety of teaching techniques, such as visual, audio, and tactile, so your student is more likely to learn, understand, and remember
  • Makes sure every student masters the material... motivating and encouraging them to work hard
  • Your child's future would certainly look brighter with educators who care so much about each student's success, wouldn't it? These schools are out there. A Google search of schools brings up a list worthy of taking a look at. But, why look any further when Halstrom Academy tops the list and meets all these criteria and more.
