🙁 I am dreading my son returning to school as well. This is his senior year and he’s returning to public school because his dad refuses to pay anymore money for private schools; he’s gone to 2 different private schools. I’m thinking about trying an academic coach because I just can’t handle the stress during the year. His dad is ADHD, and has no sympathy for my son; they have a terrible relationship. I’m thinking a coach may be better for him so he will have to be accountable to the coach and not me. It’s cheaper than keeping him in private schools only to have him bring home C’s & D’s. A lot of these teachers are just not trained to deal with kids with ADHD & LD’s; they still think they can use a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching. Has anyone considered an academic coach and if so, how did it work out?
