If you've been searching for schools with support for students with ADHD, you may be aware of how daunting the task can be. Here's how private schools offer specialized support and benefits for children with various symptoms of ADHD.
Private schools that are either geared toward students with learning disabilities or those that have systems in place to help your child with such conditions are the best schools for kids with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
"ADHD is not a learning disability, although it impacts how children learn," Heidi Bernhard, the Centre for ADHD Awareness' executive director, tells the Globe and Mail. "It's lifelong, it doesn't go away and it's very complex and highly individualistic with a wide variation in how it is manifest in a particular child."
In short, many private schools provide your child with teachers who have special training in dealing with ADHD. Here are some other benefits, unique from public schools, of sending your kid with ADHD to a private school.
Admission advisers recommend that when you fill out an application or during your in-person interview, you should be as detailed as you possibly can. Concealing anything that could help the private school improve your kid's education will only harm him or her in the long run.
