my child is acting up in the class room, he is easily frustrated (he needs more 1 on 1) and has recently began spitting on his classmates. his teacher says that academically he is doing well, but because of his attitude towards others and his refusal to do any work, he is not doing well in school a


For children with ADD / ADHD who are acting out in the classroom, can be stemmed from other factors. If the teacher said he is progressing academically, it is very possible the acting out and spitting can be due to boredom.

A few suggestions:

* Does your school offer inclusion classrooms?

* Can you have an aide shadow the child?

* If the child thinks at a higher level, maybe moving him into a more challenging atmosphere would stop the behavioral issues.
