Is this what you picture when you think of vocational a school? It’s 2019, vocational schools have come a long way and a GREAT option for many kids with ADHD.
My son attended vocational school and it was the best thing for him. Sadly, I find many parents have a negative connotation of what vocational school means or don’t even realize it’s an option.
Dr. Temple Grandin has commented on how we need more students going to vocational school so they can graduate with marketable skills. Personally, I can’t tell you how many kids diagnosed with ADHD or Asperger’s I’ve seen who graduate college with degrees that gives them no marketable skills.
If your son learn best through doing things rather than sitting there passively why not make his high school experience more enjoyable and engage him in the way he learns best?
I strongly recommend that you check out your school districts vocational school, even if you are set on your child going to college.
The workforce needs more IT people, carpenters, vet techs, HVAC technicians, etc…..there’s not a need for more people with bachelor’s degrees in psychology, or history, that’s just reality.
More kids with ADHD need to be going to vocational schools rather than sitting in classes that they don’t enjoy and passively learning material they will never use.
