I have a son 2nd grade just turned 8.He has been suspended from school twice. ( they seem to think this is doing something,punishing him and it doesn't work.)
he is APPARENTLY Including continuous disruptions, verbal aggression towards SEP teachers and teacher aides, kicking and throwing objects, loud noises to gain attention, failure to follow instruction etc..
They remove him from class,they remove him from all playground interaction they provide teacher aids school is saying now we have done everything we can.Pediatrician says they diagnosed him through school counselor with intellectual impairment but he is not impaired.he has problems...he writes back to front, upside down, but reads fine.Pediatrician is the first one i met who found my son has an extra beat in his heart,so he has to be switched on...he doesn't want to try drugs yet wants an MRI but cant until he is 10 ! So what do we do in the mean time...
I am lost he is nothing like that at home i had an older child much worse ( PDD-NOS) with ASD,ODD,ADHD,ADD & depression.This child is in no way like that..he can sit quietly and draw ,read, work etc at home,the only prob we have is tantrums when he doesnt get his own way or when he is asked to do something IE Clean your room, brush your teeth,but happily goes out and picks sticks up off the yard for dad to mow.?
So what do i do? quit my job we end up living below poverty line,so the school has a apart time student like they want he doesnt get an education and because we cant afford to feed and clothe him properly DOCS come and take him away ? How fair is any of this to anyone?
