Any recommendations? My 9 y.o. daughter is having trouble in school this year. She's overcome most sensory issues with sound, light, touch, taste, clothing, etc. She is normally an above average student. This year, her classroom is an "inclusion" classroom. This is when they take kids with learning and behavioral difficulties and integrate them in a "normal" classroom. A 2nd teacher joins the classroom to help the "special" kids. Well, it's driving my child bonkers. The "inclusion" kids hum & agitate while they work. In addition, the 2nd teacher distracts my child by walking around and helping them. My child has always had difficulty blocking out outside noise and movement when she is trying to concentrate. She is now getting low C's as grades. (Note that when she does her homework at home, she gets it all correct. The school says that a child needs to be able to work in a loud environment. They say she must have ADD and are recommending ADD medication. She does not have any other sign/symptoms of ADD or ADHD. She just needs quiet when she works. My question is: does anybody else have a child who has trouble concentrating in a noisy environment. Are you handling it by giving ADD medication? Thank you.
