pdd

My nephew is 12 years old and has been diagnosed with PDD.  His school has kicked him out several times and has threatened to call the police twice because he throws himself on the ground and starts crying uncontrollably.  Im not sure why but i think they just feel like hes a bad kid and isnt gettting disaplined.  What do we need to do in order for them to put him in a special needs class? What steps do we neeed to take in order for him to get the help he needs. Do we need to get a doctors note staiting his illness?

If your nephew is diagnosed with PDD, he should have an individualized education plan (IEP) that lays out personalized objectives for his learning for each school year and the services that he needs that the school will be providing. If he isn’t in a special needs class, but he needs to be, his parents or guardians have to make sure that it’s in his IEP. There are meetings between parents and representatives from the school in which IEPs are developed yearly but those meetings can be convened at any time if a child isn’t receiving appropriate service and the document has to be signed by parents or guardians. If his parents/guardians believe he isn’t receiving the services that he needs, they need to bring it to the attention of the school system and fight to make sure those services are provided. Unfortunately, sometimes this requires bringing in expert consultants or attorneys, but it s something that parents/guardians have to demand and that schools are required by law to respond to.
