When working with students who have "ADHD", at what age would you deam it appropriate to expect them to start working to control their own behavior? We make accomadations and set up different accomodations, routines, and methods for these students to cope/deal with their issues. At what age do we say, they need to start handing their problems, tough it out, and sit in class and learn. I have always had problems sitting still (making it through a 30 min. sitcom without getting up 5 times is rare, ha), fidgeting, staying focused, etc. But that is something I had to learn to deal with, I didn't want, ask for, or expect any different treatment, it was my issue to deal with. When do we hold the kids accountable and say, this is something you are going to have to deal with, start dealing with it.
