Does your child have ADHD?

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), which is amongst the most frequently observed childhood psychiatric disorders, is the presence of both attention problems and hyperactivity that manifests before seven years of age. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) divides ADHD symptoms according to three categories, inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. A few other common signs of ADHD include:

  • Inability to sit still
  • Lack of focus
  • Difficulty controlling emotions or what one says (i.e. blurting out inappropriate things in class)
  • Impatience

In Quebec, private schools for students with ADHD recognize the challenges that your child faces and adapt their programs to meet his or her needs. School can be an extremely frustrating challenge for children with ADHD. Indeed, the behaviours that those with this disorder find most difficult (i.e. silent listening, sitting still, focusing) are usually necessary components of a regular day at school. Here, the school will understand the individualized support that your child requires and adapt accordingly.

Private Schools in Quebec and ADHD

Quebec offers many different types of private schools for students with ADHD, including traditional, special needs, Montessori, and alternative. Many of these schools provide both day and boarding options.

Quebec's private schools present many advantages that are distinct from other education options. Here are some of these benefits:

Small class sizes

Students feel more comfortable to participate than they would in a larger class. In many cases, the classroom is like a supportive learning group instead of a rigid or formal place of educational instruction. Moreover, as noted, teachers can closely monitor all students to make sure that they do not fall behind.

Special needs schools in Quebec

These schools are intended only for students with special needs. If you think that your child's ADHD may severely impact his or her classroom capabilities, you can enroll him or her in a school for students with special needs to secure an environment specifically designed with your child in mind.

Extra Help

At a private school, class time will not be the end of your child's daily learning. Either your child or his or her teacher may ask for an extra-help session.

Extracurricular programs

Private schools have the capacity to fund numerous extra-curricular or after school programs. Typically, these clubs, groups, or sports teams are comprised of students with similar interests. They are like small, controlled social groups. These groups help children with ADHD accomplish three important goals. First, they allow like-minded students to interact in a more relaxed and less formal atmosphere than the classroom. Second, students are usually interested in the extra-curricular activity in which they are participating. As such, they are motivated to complete the tasks that it requires. More importantly, it gives kids the chance to explore interests and areas in which they excel, thereby building their confidence.
