End Discrimination Against ADHD :  PLEASE SIGN ! !

An example of discrimination against special needs children:

"All across the country, instances of bullying and harassment have sprung up on campuses leaving students feeling hurt and afraid.  Most commonly, bullying occurs between peers, but in the case of Cheyenne (a former student of the Miami Trace Middle School), a 14-year-old student with special needs, her bullies were her teachers.

Among the derogatory comments directed at Cheyenne, were insults about her weight, her credibility, and her character."

It happens all over the world.   It's outrageous.  What's more, teachers are not educated on HOW to treat children with ADHD, but follow a set of directions and keep writing Negative comments on the student's notebook.  My goodness you can imagine an ADHD student's notebook gets filled out with nonesense Every Day and the child sees it and parents have to deal with it .  

Teaching special needs is not only about a piece of paper, it's about How you treat your students.  Schools  should be more cautious on how their teachers think and act.  

It is clear ADHD children are not being given the right treatment and most of them give up from all this negative feedback.

I'm a mother to an ADHD child , I parented, drove my child to lessons, talked to teachers , .. solved problems, advocated on my child's behalf, for about a dozen years.. Along the way most teachers have been cooperative in the early years, they wanted to help.  But as my child approached high school , not only the schedule became more complicated, it was getting more and more difficult to get the message across to the school and teachers , I was just too tired of explaining to new staff about ADHD each year and making sure that my child gets his homework done when it's the most difficult thing to do ..

For this reason, schools MUST find a way of solving this , setting a plan which would help the ADHD child and not sink him further.  

I know teachers are eager to know more about ADHD and they do their best .. here is your chance to voice your opinion .. 

This is why I'm trying to get this petition going , for ADHD children . To prevent parent and teacher frustration / giving up ,  .. Would you sign it  .. ? Thanks ,
