This petition is actually for children all around the world Please sign my petition ..http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/support-teacher-staff-training-adhd/ .. it will help thousands of ADHD children and parents
ADD research has reached a new milestone in the US but there are still schools that are not ADD friendly.
ADD children suffer from discrimination in school and in the world because they are misunderstood. When they are kids, they are challenging, but as they grow older, they become compassionate, sensitive and will help people out , in fact this is seen in the early years. However, the school system doesn't seem to look at these positive qualities and choose to write only negative remarks each day for the parent to sink deeper into despair and make them and their children feel inadequate in every moment of the school year.
Teachers don't realize that this judgmental attitude is a shame to their vocation as educators, and that it won't help the student to do better , which is the school's message in the first place.
Of course, not all teachers are as stated above, in fact most care deeply about the welfare of their students.
If you sign this petition, you'll be helping out greatly by asking Educators all over the world to redetermine their teaching strategy and to put in a few hours of ADD training for the high administration / staff - only two hours at a group session at a healthcare provider/psychiatrist -as a beginning - would suffice to sensitize the teachers.
Even if you're not a parent of ADD child, even if you don't know one, do sign this petition
As you can see just by reading those lines, a great deal of pressure is put on the child and the parents , and so , many get depressed, give up and never want to continue studying, not only that but the worse is that they may suffer low self esteem and not know the way out.
The new age range for treatment is ages 4 to 18 years.
The report, "ADHD: Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Diagnosis, Evaluation and Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder," was presented on October 16, 2011, at the AAP National Conference & Exhibition in Boston by the lead researcher for the study Mark Wolraich, MD, FAAP.
Interventional therapy is recommended for children aged 4 to 5. Drug therapy is a last resort for young children. A combination of drug therapy and behavioral therapy are recommended for school age children and adolescents. The choice of therapy is symptom based."
End Discrimination Against ADHD : PLEASE SIGN ! ! http://www.thepetitionsite.com/1/support-teacher-staff-training-adhd/
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 ,
