Hi there, I am new to this group. I have a 9 year old son who has struggled academicaly since pre k. After pushing the school system unsuccessfuly for testing I finally had him diagnosed by a private party. My son has ADD so he is calm but struggles with staying focused and is "spaced out" during class. Teachers labeled him as lazy and uncooperative. One teacher even told me all he needed was a good spanking. What can I expect now that he is diagnosed? Will he be provided with support by the school or will I have to push for that too? Should I give them a good old fashioned "I told you so"?
