Has your child’s teacher ever described your son or daughter like Sam and Anna?


Sam is unable to be with his class during circle time without rocking in his chair, chewing on his shirt & twirling his hair.

He has trouble standing in line and often complains that others are hurting him.

He dislikes the sound of the school bells ringing.


Anna often breaks her pencil by pressing down too hard.

She is often falling out of her chair and she dislikes physical education class, although she loves the swings at recess.

She has a hard time organizing her desk and homework and gets easily frustrated.
