This is a very difficult situation as your son has the right to an education, yet the other pupils have a right not to be disturbed while getting their education. Many schools are, in my opinion, very unfair on children with ADHD; the teachers are often not equipped to deal with these children and far too much blame is placed on them for behaviours that are largely out of their control. Your decision to have him assessed is a very good one as it will allow for a treatment plan and give the teachers something tangible to work with. Most schools have regular meetings on new teaching techniques and approaches, perhaps your son's school would be open to an afternoon discussion hosted by an educational psychologist, teacher etc who isknowledgeable on ADHD.
