I've read comments that they are good Brown- I've read comments that they are good and "1" bad review All of the Claremont schools- I've read comments that they are good Duke- I've read comments that they are good Tulane- I read one old comment that they are good, anything else? Schools that I think would probably not be a good fit or schools I have read bad reviews on for LD students UPenn- I read a bad review. Schools that I have seen no comments regarding LD students- Harvard, Princeton, MIT, Stanford, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Washington U in St Louis, Vanderbilt, Carnegie Mellon, Rice, Boston U, Purdue, USC (Southern Cal)... Think of what the school setting requires children to do: Sit still. Meanwhile, you, the teacher, wind up taking complaints from parents who feel their kids are being cheated of your instruction and feeling guilty because you can’t reach the child with ADHD.Students with ADHD: So how do you teach a kid who won’t settle down and listen?

This can be a hand signal, an unobtrusive shoulder squeeze, or a sticky note on the student’s desk.
The one who answers the question, “Who can tell me what the 6th Amendment guarantees? You know the brainpower is there, but they just can’t seem to focus on the material you’re working hard to deliver. That doesn’t make teaching them any easier, of course.
Plus, their behaviors take time away from instruction and disrupt the whole class. Students with ADHD pay the price for their problems in low grades, scolding and punishment, teasing from peers, and low self-esteem.
Herein lies my questions: I'm looking for feedback on stories from students with ADHD or parents of students with ADHD, that attend any of the following schools. 1) Once a student has a psyche exam done and it's determined they need accommodations/extra time, etc.
