Hi, I have a ss who is on ADHD medication. He takes one in the morning before school and one at school. His teacher will write in his book if he was not focused that day or if he took too long to unpack his bag or was acting too goofy today. Lately he has not been getting his meds at our home b/c the BM has not provided us with them. Today the teacher wrote a note and this is not the first time - "has he been taking his meds in the morning?"
Here is my question, at what point is the school overstepping their boundries? I ask because last time he was with us and he did not get his meds in the morning, there were no issues about lack of focus. He did great in school! Just so happens today he struggled a little more in the morning writing down his homework assignment. Teacher said took 15mins. Keep in mind there have been times where he took his meds and he still got a note in his book about lack of focus or let me quote "had the wiggles during lunch".
DH told the teacher the issue about us not have the meds to give him and that BM is aware of this but has done nothing to correct this much less respond to our request. I guess I am wondering - what would the teacher do different if he was taking his meds vs. not taking his meds??? I feel so bad for him and believe that there are days we all just have a bad day but fully understand ADHD.
I guess my question to you is since the teacher is aware he takes morning meds should she be that concerned if he took them knowing there have been times he has taken them and he still takes a little longer to complete assignments. This will probably be the 5th time she has asked. Again, what is she going to do differently either way??? sorry for rambaling but a little advise from others who deal with this would be great.
