Let’s talk about school services. I’m a grad student currently working on my master’s degree in speech-language pathology. I also happen to have a diagnosis of severe ADHD- combined type (hyperactive and inattentive). I love learning but school has never been easy for me. Many of my teachers didn’t know how to help me and some were insistent that I needed to be in special ed classes. I hear some similar frustrations from PWS when speaking about their school experiences. As a college student, I was encouraged to look into disability services but I found that there wasn’t much they could offer me. I am about to start an internship at an elementary school in the spring and I’d like to be more supportive than the teachers I had. So, what services, if any, did you received, were they helpful, and is there anything you wish they would provide PWS at any level of education? Thank you in advance.
