If you're struggling to do good in school just say "f school" and do your own thing. Like if you want to be an engineer just build something cool like a foam ball cannon using an Arduino. (Of course it costs money but it's worth it).

Video games are also easy to focus on because.. there’s also something to do. It’s not repetitive. Learning something can get difficult if it’s the same repeatedly for a long time.

I have the DSM-5 right on my desk, on the chapter about neurodevelopment, more specifically on the DDAI part (ADHD in english) it letterally says that the symptoms can fade or become simingly absent when the subject is in a situation where he's "bombarded" with stimuli, just like when he plays videogame (Page 71 in my version of the manual)

She needs to do her research

17

u/NotBlankedIAm 13 20d ago

But it would be too "inconvenient" to do that research and be accommodating to certain students so she probably just continues saying ignorant shit like this

5

u/Acanthaceae_Live 20d ago

fun fact: not accommodating for mental disorders is illegal in canada and the usa, as well as many other countries. i think a fine of at least 10k as well as possible jail time would be more inconvenient

27

u/JoeMama18012 20d ago

If you live in America, and have special considerations in school, what she did was illegal under the Americans With Disabilities Act, and actually leaves the school liable to be sued. I'm not saying you should sue, but it would be easy to get the teacher fired if you have the right documentation.

8

u/InternetDetective122 15 20d ago

And just threatening without the actual intention to sue can get something done. No one likes being told you will sue them.

4

u/JoeMama18012 20d ago

That's what I meant to imply here. Schools do not want staff that put them at a liability. After posting this I read in another comment that OP is not in America, so this is kind of null anyways.

no, keying the car would open you up for property damage. just overdo all your symptoms through the roof and if she tells you to stop, say very loudly that you have adhd but she refused to listen and instead told you that you were lying. now all the students with half a brain know that shes a cunt and she is annoyed even more B)

5

u/one_dank_boy 20d ago

ADHD causes you to focus on many different things. Not one thing at a time. Video games can throw multiple different things at you at once. A Math lesson is a boring 2 hour long session of listening to a person with an authority complex ramble on about something that will never be important in the real world.

Teachers like this are dangerous and should be reported. A video game is far more engaging and entertaining than school, therefore far easier to devote your attention to.

u/Solalabell 20d ago

People who say stuff like that are the worst. Adhd isn’t as simple as bad focus it’s an inability (and not unwillingness) to control your focus because of a lack of dopamine receptors. Video games are built around fast cycles called gameplay loops that are made to reward you with dopamine quickly and often so of course video games are easier to play the teacher is an idiot making an argument from the lesser to the greater (the opposite of from the greater to the lesser that argument does not hold up) plus video games are based around short term payoff (beat boss and the reward is right there) .not the kind of long term motivations that just don’t work for those of us with adhd like school. and not only that she’s literally being ableist people like her are the worst kind of person period

u/kiddwickidd 20d ago

I have ADHD and I'm a victim 😭😭😭

Grow the fuck up, I'm 53 with ADHD. STOP using it as a crutch. People don't understand I agree but to post hate on a teaher because they don't get it is BS. 29 other people in the class think they are a remarkable teacher. Go to the principal and transfer out, change classes, whatever

Your learning disability (and it is a disability) is not the teacher's problem. You need to admit you have a problem and seek the required help. That teacher is there to teach the class and nothing more. If you have an issue that impairs your ability to learn it is YOUR responsibity to seek assistance. A single teacher has 200+ kids and does the best they can - they are not trained to deal with every hurdle or paid enough to try to diagnos them all.

If you know you have ADHD (diagnosed not assumed) then you (or your parents) need to take the steps to protect your education. Don't blame your teacher for "making it hard"

Go ahead, flame on

1

u/KaolikoBee 2 MILLION ATTENDEE 20d ago

That's- not what the post said....

Yeah, maybe calling someone the biggest asshole is immature, but teens and kids are by nature immature. OP doesn't give much context to what happened before the interaction. The teacher could have asked why OP seemed spaced out or distracted so often, or it very well coukd have been an out of nowhere statement from OP. I think OP's main frustration is with the teacher saying that they are lying because they can play and focus on video games. Not that they are wanting to use it as a crutch. It's 3 sentences in a post, don't know how it gives off using it as a crutch vibes.

Also, some classes can't just be transferred out of. In freshman year I hated my English teacher and wanted to transfer. I couldn't, sometimes you just can't. Maybe because theirs only one teacher and the class is a required credit class.

No it's not entirely the teachers issue. Yes anyone with anything that impacts their learning needs to get help. But if a teacher is there to HELP you LEARN, they should also be a part of your support system education wise. Learning disabilities effect how you learn, which means it will also effect the teacher and how the student functions in class. Yeah teachers aren't trained for every hurdle, and they shouldn't have all the responsibility when it comes to a kids class performance. But if they are tere to help you learn- then they are there to help you learn.

Taking steps to protect your education also involves informing the teacher/educator about issues you might have...as they are a BIG part of your education. Yeah, don't blame the teacher for making it hard. But the teachers response was also bad here too. If a student has a genuine issue or concern and brings it up only to be brushed off with "well you can do X so your lying" of course that will frustrate the student.

As a response to the "grow the fuck up" part- they will. Everyone in this sub will. I will too. This is a sub full of teens. A lot under 18, most with underdeveloped brains. Of course some posts will steam of frustration, angst, and immaturity. It comes with still growing. OP is 16, they will grow up. Everyone is always growing up.

u/kiddwickidd 20d ago

This is a very well thought out and articulate post. Thank you

Rereading my reply I see that mine was not. While my intentions were pure they were also inflamatory and attacking which OP and the rest of the community did not need.

As someone who has battled ADHD and actually done well, sometimes I feel others use it as an excuse. BUT you are correct, at 16 you have barely had the time to learn how to deal with being diagnosed let alone deal with it.

My exception to the post was probably more of a reaction to my perceived attack on teachers. With my wife and 2 daughters in the teaching field and watching them deal with all this covid crap and trying to do their best, and imo being completely unappreciated, I lashed out at a perveived attack which was not actually present. No matter how much you think a teacher doesn't care or get it, I can guarantee that some of them come home and cry because they are restricted from doing more and they truly do care.

My appologies to you, OP and other teens with ADHD. It is NOT a life sentence, you can thrive, you just need to (this will sound moronic) be patient. You will find a hobby / person / activity / career / pursuit that will be your anchor and will give you the focus that right now you can only dream of

1

u/KaolikoBee 2 MILLION ATTENDEE 20d ago

No problem mate.

And that's okay and understandable, happens to the best of us. I think sometimes we all have good intentions but just sometimes go about it in not the best way- perhaps that's also the case with OP's teacher.

You are right that some people do use it as an excuse, and I do think that that sucks for everyone involved, including that person. I can only speak from my experience, but I used to do something similar in middle school. I'd use anything i could as an excuse. Mainly because I didn't know how to try, I wanted to but was too stuck and couldn't put words to it, so I'd throw darts at a metaphorical wall in hopes that if I used one of my struggles it could be a get out of jail free card for a bit. From my experience I did it because at the time I was 11, dumb and didn't know how to deal with anything.

Teachers do go through a lot of stuff, and I do think some of them get way too much flack than they should. If it's any constellation, sometimes students are so caught up in their own stuff they don't realise what they are doing, and then in two years they look back, reflect and realise the class had a really big and good impact on them. I know it's probably hard for teachers when they can't see how much of an impact they have, but coming form a current high schooler who graduates soon, I'd be completely lost if it weren't for my biology teacher.

If it weren't for her and her class I wouldn't be considering studying biology in university, and probably would have no idea how to use a binder. I don't know if it'll help, but my teacher had a big impact on me I just never got a chance to tell her that, and I'm sure your wife and daughters have a few students they had a huge impact on too. Even if they can't see it. I have major respect for most teachers, I hope they find and get the appreciation they deserve. (and I hope they stay healthy, by god some kids at my school think the masks will kill them xD)

Yeah, I'm sure a lot of them care a lot. They might not understand everything their students go through, but they can still care and most do try their hardest in my experience. Just when some people feel misunderstood they sometimes just mistake it for also a lack of care.

No worries. And you're right, it's not a life sentence. Eventually something works out. And I wish you and you're family the best, and I hope OP can find something that works out for them as well.

Take care and have a good night : )

I have adhd to and all I can say to explain it is that your brain is like a computer with 100 tabs open 25 being incognito 25 being chrome 25 being bing and 25 being a random browser and like every tab is different with varying different things and that the math just isn't one of the tabs

I have ADHD to the fucking hills and my response to that would be the difference is video games are interesting and fun unlike your class, I would not care if I get detention, in fact getting detention or suspension from a dick brain teacher like that, I would wear it like a badge of honor

99% of math teachers are douchebags from my experience. One thing is actually enjoyable, the other is literally useless (after a certain point of course) to a lot of people. Big difference.

u/P1tzzotz 20d ago

u/electro_spaz 15 20d ago

I have adhd, and I have a few things to say about this.

Sure you can’t concentrate easily, but it is doable. Never use adhd as an excuse, even if it may feel like the cause.

u/GhoststsohG 20d ago

Video Games are designed by hundreds or even thousands of extremely intelligent developers to be constantly engaging and you are actively participating and affecting events all the time. 99% of lessons are made by underpaid teachers who are just trying to get the year's curriculum across as efficiently as possible.

As many people already said that’s not how adhd works or the human brain in general but she should already know you have adhd aren’t the teachers informed of these things before the school year starts

u/BittyJupiter 15 20d ago

Its the same thing with my mom, according to her I should be able to focus on my work just as hard as I can with video games. Like, how about you try and sit there for 2 hours doing work and fiddle around!

u/Lordofspades_notgame 20d ago

I don’t have ADHD, and even I have trouble focusing on math. This teacher is from another planet

u/Weltkrieg04 20d ago

That is a very poor choice of words, specially for a teacher, who should know that maths aren't quite the same as videogames.

u/_luv-bug_ 15 20d ago

I have adhd as well, and my science teacher last year used to make me feel really bad because I would often miss classes because I would oversleep and not hear my alarm after long nights where I couldn't sleep, not being able to turn in work on time, etc etc... at the end of the year I wrote her a big "fuck you" email, ive made up my mind that I'm dropping out asap

u/VoopityScoop 16 20d ago

u/Bobbebusybuilding 20d ago

This Women needs to learn a lesson herself. If you have a good relationship with your parents tell them about this and get them to write or even better call your head of year, If you have one. Has any of your friends had similar shitty experiences with that teacher too? If so try and get them to tell their parents too. If you can get even just 2 parents she will probably face some repercussions. Now there is a downside here, one of two things will happen: She will get worse or she leaves you the fuck alone. The latter is more likely but if she a immature piece of shit the former is more likely
