Clip to ScrapBook #3

I totally agree! I couldn't read the article but I also think its the reason a lot of young children are now being diagnosed with ADHD, especially the little boys. Our expectations of them sitting still for long periods of time to listen, work, etc. is developmentally inappropriate and their responses are generally within what should be expected of their age group. Its one of the main reasons I retired when I did. I could not continue to come into my K classroom day after day and teach in a way that I knew was developmentally inappropriate and even harmful to children.
