Home Welcome to the ADDitude Forums School & Learning Can my son’s principal do this? Reply To: Can my son’s principal do this?


I am an Educator with 14 years of experience and I have ADHD.

The best thing you can do for your child as help them to accept the fact that they have to TRY HARDER than everyone else! The sooner they accept it the better. You will be doing them a great favor in life.

As for the spinners – they are a horrible distraction for kids with ADHD and especially for kids without it!

Any fidget devices should be concealable and not fashionable as far as the latest designs and colors. This distracts me for God’s sake.

To focus attention deep breathing, positive self-affirmations, try harder attitude and tactics to block out others. I envision myself in a bubble where people can see in but I can’t hear them and don’t want to see them
