I’m finding it difficult to concentrate in class

“I am always getting told off in class for not concentrating, even if I am trying really hard to pay attention. It’s so frustrating and annoying! There are so many things happening in my class, I can’t help myself and I have to investigate. When the teacher makes me sit down, I am ready to burst and can’t stop myself from fidgeting, wriggling and shouting out the answers. Everyday this happens at school and at home but I don’t know what to do!”

If you have similar problems, tell someone that you don’t like being in trouble because you can’t concentrate and you would like help.

Remember if the person you first speak to does not help or does not believe you then speak to someone else.
