A new scientific study by The Kennedy Krieger Institute has discovered that 30% of children with Autism also have hyperactive or ADHD type symptoms. The study also found that these children are 400% more likely to be bullied at school. This demonstrates the importance of accurate assessment by a medical professional and careful monitoring of children with this diagnosis at school.
At Focused Education we often feel sorry for our students. They often tell us about being ‘set up’ by other quick witted bullies at Perth public and private schools. It is common to hear about a child with ADHD and Autism getting blamed for an incident due to other students provoking them into a verbal or physical confrontation.
With a reduced ability to control their actions, these children are often condemned to a life of being labelled ‘the naughty kid’.
At Focused Education we feel it’s the equivalent of mistreating a puppy until it bites the abuser. If you saw it happening to a puppy you would call the RSPCA. It’s time to stop it happening to Perth children with ADHD and Autism.
