seeking advice from parents of adhd students


ronaki May 27, 2013

We are moving to Portland, our 6th grader is quick witted, smart, and suffers from disorganization and inability to stay on task. What are the Portland schools that are recommended, based on your experience, and which are to be AVOIDED? Thank you kindly!

I can't give you a specific school recommendation, but I strongly recommend you get a copy of these two books: (1) "The Wildest Colts make the Best Horses" by Dr. John Breeding, and (2) "No More ADHD" by Dr. Mary Ann Block. They provide very workable solutions to ADHD behaviour that do not include using psychotropic drugs that can put your child at risk.
