A mum-of-two has spoken of her anguish as her seven-year-old has been out of mainstream school for 20 weeks. Naomi Shelton, 33, said young Kade Moneypenny was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in May 2018.
The mum from Calverton, Nottinghamshire, told how "he has always been the class clown and so alarm bells started ringing but after his diagnosis he started getting excluded from school left right and centre."
CHILDREN with attention-deficit disorder are being excluded from school up to six times on average, according to a new report.
Long waits for a diagnosis, a lack of classroom learning support and an over-reliance on medication as the only treatment were also highlighted in the first report by the Scottish ADHD Coalition.
