My son has an eye condition that interferes with his ability to learn . I have always had trouble trying to get anyone to believe he has an eye condition that causes his problems and that it is not add/ADHD. I am shocked by the fact that all they want to believe is that children who can' t focus or pay attention in class have ADD/ADHD and need to be medicated. Medication can't fix my child's eye disorder. If you have a similar problem try looking up covd(center of vision and development) on the internet. There are eye disorders that can cause symptoms similar to ADD/ADHD or take your child to an eye doctor for a developmental eye exam.

Rickman Elementary has a superb faculty. The teachers and staff are hard-working and really care about the students. The teachers use a wide variety of programs to make sure that all student needs are met. They offer band, art, and several sports programs, especially basketball.
