  • Michael Archangel Just trying to balance out the "haters"

    ^^^First, Illinois does not have a "three strike rule", so there is that little fact. There was some discussion earlier in the year about "super sizing" some sentencing parameters but I do not know where that stands today.

    So we do not misunderstand one another, I am not defending Mr. Hayer. He has screwed up a few times and deserved the jail time. If history informs the future, it is highly likely that he will pick up another charge at some point or a rival will take him out.

    Thanks for clarifying Archangel.
    I feel better.
    My hope is always that they turn their life around

Tutor for juvenile ADHD

8 year old; smart but scattered (yes, a book title, too). Superlative cognitive skills but otherwise, no focus, hasty, impatient. CPS student, so I'm thinking some targeted tutoring on executive skills might be the path. Thanks much for any positive feedback.

    The reason I ask is because with a 504/IEP there may be a chance of funding for you to pay someone.
    I am a respite care worker for 2 kids, one of which is moderately autistic and the other has significant ADD. He has had an IEP in place in the past.
    Are you looking for a volunteer or pay tutor? If you can pay I think this is going to be your best option. One place you could try is Sittercity.com which is generally for child care but I am pretty sure tutoring can be found on the site.
    A child with this issue for school and homework should be on a "plan" at home all the time. Meaning a schedule with flexibility but a structure in place to keep the child organized. It's also maybe a good idea to come up with a rewards system to help the child Stat motivated since intrinsic motivation of a job well done isn't often enough especially with the frustration that can come with this.

  • 504/IEP plans are very helpful. There is a yearly meeting with parents, teacher, sometimes other staff. Ideas are thrown around by everyone and discussed. But parents are the final decision makers. My son was diagnosed with ADD in 4th grade. He is now starting 7th. We have been dwindling down his provisions every year and he adjusts well. I believe this might be the last year! It not only let's the school help the child in appropriate ways, but teaches the children how to more successful on their own.
