Hello. I know there are several regular chatters in the YAHOO ADD CHAT room from Canada and I am hoping that we can come together to chat about life, love, kids, family, school, just about anything.
The Canadian education system is different from the USA system and I hope to share stories here that reflect the struggles or the successes of our school system. Plus, I'd just really like to get to know my fellow Canadians better.

Hello. I would consider myself a regular in the YAHOO ADD CHAT room, and I am from British COlumbia, Canada. Our son was diagnosed as ADD in October of 2002 after many years of noticing his challenges with attention. We have been very fortunate that his teachers (he has 2) are very supportive and willing to try anything to help our son. He has been doing much better in school...so much so that his teachers called a meeting before Spring Break to 'celebrate' his achievements since Christmas. At this meeting they asked when we had started him on ritalin......we never did!!! Needless to say we are very happy with how things are going with him at school!! We attribute his success to the many lists that he has (and have become second nature for him to check and follow) both at home and at school. I hope that everyone might have the same positive experiences with school as our son has.....(so far...finger crossed they continue)
