Adjustments can be made to improve the fit between the two so it’s less like walking through quicksand and more like an unpaved road.
Even I have a hard time imagining a fit so precise that a student with ADHD feels zero friction between their desire to learn in that setting and the system’s ability to fully meet that child where she’s at.
The system is simply not able or willing to be flexible enough. At this time that is.
But let’s not shake our finger at the system when it’s less than perfect. We must continuously strive for better, as a parent, educator and student.
Better strategies, better understanding, better communication and most important is to flush out the crappy thinking that stops you dead in your tracks before taking any action.
Each member of the student’s team is likely experiencing some degree of overwhelm over the level and amount of responsibility placed upon them for a successful school year.
As a parent, an educator and student. You make natural allies in this process because you each want similar things.
We’re all in this together and together is how we’ll succeed.
