OK here is the story. We have a young guy 8. he suffers with ADHD, he started to come to the class about 2 months ago. From day one he was difficult to teach. he will stand still for a few seconds that's it. most times he wont even make it through the start and finish, he just runs off around the dojang. climbing up the walls. We tried a dedicated assistant, who would be with him throughout the lesson, as he was taking up so much of our time trying to get him back. partner work is almost impossible, after a couple of reps he is off again, not fair on his partner (who ever that is). He understands that he cannot just run off, not only for his safety but the safety of others, it makes no difference. We have talked to his mother, who just seems to brush the problems off, and expects us to sort this little guys problem out. Its become a real problem for most of the instructors, that they want him removed from the class (I dont blame them really, as we all know teaching young ones is hard enough) I am leaning that way, but I dont want to give up on him. I have had only two other children that I have asked to leave the class, one was a 10 year old that was very aggressive, If he thought that someone looked at him in a way he didn't like he would basically attack them, it didn't matter if it was an adult or another child. And another who just wouldn't do as he was told. Any Ideas, how I/we can get through to him. (I thought about getting his mother to joint he class, but she doesn't want to) Or do I just fail this boy and step in line with the others.
