We are struggling somewhat with our non medicated 7 year old ADHD son. He's on an IEP at our public school. However, he has low esteem, wonders why he has to go see the teacher who teaches the "special" kids, wonders why he's in trouble a lot, thinks he's stupid because he's academically behind (he's not), and generally is the weird kid and has few if any friends.
We are considering spending a ridiculous amount of money to send him to a small private school instead, where it seems they may be more inclined to help kinetic learners, let kids move around more, focus on esteem more, etc. But it's a tiny school, and the additional resources the public school is required to provide aren't going to be guaranteed.
Would love to hear from others who've gone through this decision.
