Re: Worrying feedback from Kindergarten teacher

View Post
Hi all

I have a 5.5 year old daughter who started Kindergarten in August last year.

We have had feedback from the Kindergarten teachers which is really worrying us. There was a meeting with the teacher in Dec last year where they made a feedback that they feel that my daughter has difficulty concentrating and is really hyperactive. They also say she does not listen to them. I was surprised when she asked me to speak with her doctor and ask if she should go for Ergotherapy. I think my girl is a normal child, reasonably intelligent and I accept she is not perfect. There are times she is naughty but are not all children. We discussed with the doctor and he clearly said this is not required.
Dear Dietiker,

As a formal primary teacher my personal advice is trust the kindergarten teachers and try the Ergotherapy or the new approach suggested.
Hyperactivity can be diagnosed after a continuous number of symptoms and signs during a 6 months period of time, try to know as much as you can about the disease, discuss the behavior that the teachers are complaining about and work out strategies together, they will always be your best allies.
Try also to find a specialist for your kid that can verify how she is developing and find out which behavior and strategies you can adopt to help her in her daily life.
Hyperactivity with attention deficit disorder is serious, but children can be helped and learn to help themselves in order to achieve their goals, it is a matter of discipline and strategy that can make your life and hers much better .
Her educational future is really depending on how much help she is getting to overcome her difficulties, give it a try and believe in better days

All the best,
