May I know if school can cane ADHD P2 boy?

My son kicked his friend (it’s happened few times in the past)
School decided to cane him.
I am very sorry to the other boy that my son kicked. But can school cane my son? School said “school need to address what he has done wrong.”

Maybe you can ask to see the school’s written guidelines. From what I heard, usually if it’s only the child’s first offense, nobody give caning, at least not for lower primary.

What did they do in the past instances? Warning? Did he fully understand what would happen if he ignored the warning?

Hi,

Has anyone engaged child psychologist Dr Wilson Chan or used the Gifted Lab @ Balmoral Plaza for ADHD assessment or full cognitive test? Charges sound more reasonable than others but not sure the level of accuracy.

Does anyone have a child with ADD( day-dreamer type)? Would you be able to share your experience or get in touch with me? I think my DD is in this category and have been reading a lot on this and am very confused at the moment. Many of the posts here shared experiences with ADHD( with hyperactivity).

Appreciate your valuable input on the above. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing, August22! I work closely with The Gifted Lab. Would you mind elaborating on what your friend's experience was like? I could pass on the feedback to them. :)
