I think the firing was appropriate. After 6 years in the same school system and a 504 plan for ADHD diagnosis, I still get feedback both verbal and written feedback from teachers that my son “needs to have better focus” or “needs more concentration in class”. These teachers clearly need education on this disability. If the child was blind or deaf I don’t think they would say “needs to listen better”. So frustrating that teachers can’t get this.
