I have worked with many children over the years who have a motor that is never still. A brain that notices everything all at once. Some children can regulate themselves enough to thrive. I know there are times when Doctors over identify and over prescribe for a variety of issues. There are also times where the medication is truly a game changer. One of my students started on medication today. His mom called me and wanted me to check on him to make sure that he was OK she was worried about how he would adjust on his first day at school on his new medication. When I asked him how he felt, He looked at me he, his books all neatly stacked in a pile and he said For the first time in 12 years. My brain works.
