SCHOOL REFUSES TO COMMUNICATE ON ADHD STUDENT APPLICATION

Dear A.S.S. Editor

While many other parents who are nervous about their children’s performance, I have to deal with a different kind of anxiety because of the school inefficiency. My son has a ADHD condition and the school has not been very efficient in getting the approvals in time with no assurance except a call last Friday (after calls to MOE) with a non-committal of “we submitted the application”.

Why then does it take so long to be approved when the Dr’s report was already given since April? Till now, no response from the Principal. I hope to share my experience so that parents with children who have learning disability will be aware of the Access Arrangements available and not to give up easily.
