ADHD Misconception

Hi everyone, I have really enjoyed following the progression of Jacks’s proposal: ADHD Misconception. I can personally resonate with this proposal as I was diagnosed with ADD when I was younger and my younger brother has ADHD as well.

I think that Jack used great people to talk to regarding this issue, considering he consulted a child who suffers from ADHD, a bus driver who deals with children with ADHD everyday, and a parent who has a child with ADHD. It was very interesting to read about all of their individual takes on the issue, and I think it made it that much more enjoyable for me to read about. In addition, I was very interested by Jack’s preambulatory clauses, and especially the one that said “ADHD makes it difficult for many students to sit still in their seats on the bus and often times are jumping around and out of their seat,” as this is not something that I would ever typically think about. However, now that I look back on my experiences on the bus as a kid I do find that I was always walking around and getting out of my seat to interact with others. In all, I love the idea of providing games and other activities on buses as I see it being a positive activity for children to partake in that will hopefully result in less bullying and less students running around on the bus. However, I do not quite see the benefits in providing breakfast each morning on the bus, as I personally see that starting more problems than fixing, as the bus will likely be messier, and a lot of students have allergy concerns or are picky eaters. If this operative clause were revamped or taken out all together, then I think that this proposal will be stronger because I see a lot of potential. Overall, great job!
