I've posted about one of my students (7th grade) on here before who is super hyperactive. More than anyone I've ever seen before. She was recently diagnosed with all of the above plus Aspergers. They're putting her on medication starting today. I'm a little sad. She is such a happy bubbly kid and she has gotten so much better at focusing in the classroom. Her most recent tests have been mid-80s, not too shabby for any kid! Let alone one who can't focus! These grades won't get her into Med School, but the kid's not going to be a doctor anyways. I'm so afraid she's going to lose her personality. I say keep her off her meds and let her have her childhood. I understand there is a place for medication, but I don't think it should be her. But I'm no professional. I have her again on Wednesday, so I'll get to see any changes.
