This is my first time on this service. I have an eleven year old child whom I am very worried about in addition to his tourettes he also has ADHD and OCD, I feel he is slipping through the cracks of the public school system and its large classes. He has a book report due in 4 days but has not read a book he can not even sit through 2 min straight of reading. However when people meet him they are amazed at how intelligent he is. His teacher feels he is just not putiing in the effort. I have tried many strategies from books to doctor suggestions so on and so on. I know my child, he simply can not get organized or stay on task with out the impulse to jump up , snap his head or move on to something more interesting. He is not doing this to be devient. He will be starting junior high in the new school year and we are on a desperate search for a school that can accomadate his disorders. When I spoke with his current principal she was not even aware that some of my sons behaviors were symptoms of TS. Why are our educators unaware of these conditions? If anyone is aware of a school in the Toronto area that caters to these children I would love to hear about them.
