• ADHD

What school was like:

  • The classroom had too many people in it
  • I generally didn’t get to learn in a way that worked for me.
  • It was overwhelming
  • I was told I talked too much
  • I was told I didn’t try hard enough
  • I asked for help and didn’t get it
  • My mental health needs were not met
  • I felt that my opinions were not important
  • I felt I didn’t have automomy over my body (ie having to go to the toilets at certain times or not being allowed a certain haircut)
  • I had to spend too much time sat down

What worked well?

“The very rare occasion I was allowed a fidget toy.”

What could school do to help?

“Not use a one size fits all model.”
