This is a personal journey of a child diagnosed with ADHD as he navigates the public school system. It reinforces the need for advocacy on the part of parents in order for children with ADHD to be adequately supported in school. Schools are ill equipped to handle many of their needs. It is an invisible disorder yet medical and many times not accepted as a real neurobiological disorder like it is.

The Seventh Inning Sit:  A Journey of ADHD is a book of advocacy.  It is a personal journey depicting how important it is to support children with ADHD in the school system.  Many do not understand or accept the medical diagnosis of ADHD.  But it truly is a neurobiological disorder that currently affects 5%-10% of the school age population.  Without support in school, these kids are not always successful, leading to failure and low self-esteem.  They can suffer from inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity along with a multitude of co-existing disorders. Many times, deficits in executive functioning skills cause a great deal of trouble once children are in middle school and have many teachers with many assignments.  These skills that are need for organization are compromised.


It is paramount that parents learn all they can about ADHD in order to make sure they are supported in school and can be successful.



Another area of executive function is the ability to analyze, pull apart, and figure out a problem, using multi-steps. I know this will come into play as Jon grows older and is expected to do projects, long-term reports, and group work. But on a smaller level, I see a child who has difficulty in a math problem filtering out the data that is not needed. Teaching him to help himself in analyzing a problem, i think, includes the necessity to either highlight important facts or cross out facts not pertinent to figuring out the problem. This is a very systematic approach, but again an area where it is hard to get started.
