School question for social anxiety and inattentive ADD
Any public or private elementary, middle, or high school recommendations for a (currently) 10 yr-old w social anxiety and inattentive ADD? Any advice from parents w similar kids who have been there and done that?
The school(s) don't have to be in any particular location --it's slightly possible we could move to the north bay or a different part of the east bay for a promising fit. Or possibly even farther.
I'm optimistically wondering if there's a smaller public (charter?) Or private elementary, middle, or high school that could work for us. I know a lot of people have strong opinions, but I'm just hoping to explore all possible options. Feeling a little desperate.
So we're at a private school because they were going downhill fast at a Berkeley public school. They couldn't handle the social...games, for lack of a better word. I realize these games are impossible to eliminate, but I know schools where it's less intense. And when I say they were going downhill fast, I'm not exaggerating. It was serious.
Now they're a little stronger and older and we're thinking ahead to middle school/high school.
Private school is a stretch for us, both logistically and financially. The one we're at isn't a perfect fit for a number of reasons, even though it's a great school.
Homeschooling would also be a stretch for us. They need structure and regular/casual social interactions. They also love having teachers. I know some are able to integrate these aspects into homeschool, but I have explored it and have some serious doubts we could do it.
Any advice is welcome! Thanks!
