Dear Worried Mom,
You seem to be on the right track with the measures you have taken to help your son, yet the negative response from his teacher is contradicting your efforts. The doctor may wish to monitor him if these behaviours are relatively new as a diagnosis of AD/HD requires the presence of symptoms in two or more settings consistently for a minimum of 6 months. If you have not yet reduced his sugar intake this may be another step to take; it would be ideal to take him to a dietician as children respond differently to different foods; in some cases children become hyper on dairy foods. Although structure and discipline are crucial to managing a hyperactive child, becoming frustrated is not going to have much benefit. There are a number of websites available explaining techniques to be used in the classroom for children whose concentration wanders easily. It may be beneficial to print some of these out and diplomatically give them to your son's new teacher.
