If ADHD, it will outgrow when they are older like P4 or P5 depending on the family support given.

My friend's son has outgrow in P4 now. He is a lot better. Mother supports and school counsellor also comes in to help.

All this are very important.

I would suggest 1 hour tuition will do in your house for 1 - 1. No group tuition bec he might go and walk around and disturb other students.

Tell the tutor about your child's condition which I did for my girl who has SPD. The tutor was very understanding to accept 1 hour tuition in my home.

Serious ADHD must seek treatment.

How old is your son? How serious?

Hi Sushigal

My son is 4 years old.

The 1 to 1 tutor you hired is it the normal tutor or those tutor who is trained in teaching special needs child in academic subject ?

My son ADHD is walking around,lying down on the floor in.group class.I am thinking of changing him to 1 to 1 tutor as I don't think his behaviours is acceptable in group class.

Is that consider not serious ADHD?

Do you know what your fren did to help his/ her son to improve his classroom behaviour to function in the school?

4 years old, what kind of tuition are you giving him?

I'm glad you recognise his behaviour is not acceptable. I come across many parents are in denial and by then their children grow older, it's going to train the child.

I believe in early intervention.

Hi snow24

Did u ever consider letting yr child learn a musical instrument. This is to instill self discipline and maybe it can help tame him ?

Just my humble suggestion :)

When a child is ADHD, do you think playing an instrument helps?

Try not to do the opposite reason being you will only waste your time and money.

Since only 4 years old, I would suggest you send him/her for enrichment instead of tuition. Enrich the child. I did that for my gal. I send her for Speech & Drama. Not only it helps her in her language it also helps her in her confidence level. The teacher said to them: a child learns better when he/she relax. Which is so true!

I tried piano for gal too! After 9 months, she herself give up. I did not force after that.

Give your child time to develop himself. He only came to this world 4 years ago. Don't put too pressure on yourself and the child. Enjoy the time first.

It didn't helped your girl doesn't mean it won't helped others.

I came across a mother who told me that his boy improved on his behavior after he learned violin and she was the one who took over my son's preloved violin.
