Shutting down
Jan 23, 2017 - 3:13 PM - by Csmommie11
Has any other parents that have kids with ADHD had them to shut down and not talk to anyone for about 20-30 minutes? And would this be considered being defiant cause that's what I was told by the principal at my son's school?

Jan 22, 2017 - 4:08 PM - by posthaze
Hey guys,

So, I've struggled with my life up until now. I've had so many problems, so many pitfalls in my education, my dating life, my social life and even my work life that now that I've managed to get back to uni to study as a mature student, it was so pressing that I felt I needed help. I reached out to the uni wellbeing services and they offered to give me a dyslexia screening test based on the fact that I mentioned I had trouble reading for prolonged periods of time (I'm...

Jan 22, 2017 - 1:16 AM - by jbradindaghetto
And I don't mean secretly, liked I am being spied on our something.
I am in school, and I sit at the front of all my classes because it's the only chance I have at retaining any information. Like many people here I'm sure, I can get a bit fidgety. On the wrong day, I stay to worry that people in my class notice or are distracted by it. That stresses me out, and my natural response is to get more restless. Now I've created a nice feedback loop, and all the focus I have is going into... [Read More]
