The school said I needed to take him to find out if he had add/adhd so I did. He was on medication for 2 years. His grades were not great but he passed, except for last year third grade. He is now off his medication (he was repeating his last sentence and was very emotional) He is now in a different school and is on the honor roll (principals list) He has never been a bully but was distracted often. I am beginning to believe that teachers want these kids medicated. The reason I took him off the medication is becuase of the side effects I read. If you can outgrow adhd, my son has.

I don't know too much about Autism, but I do know about ADHD because my 10 yr. old DS has it. he has an IEP and THE SCHOOL HAS TO FOLLOW IT. I can also relate to the school's comments because before we switched schools, my son's former principal sent me an email telling me that my son has had two rough days in a row and if I thought tomorrow was going to be the same, I'd appreciate if you'd keep him home. WTH is that. She had also asked me to come get him a few times. IMO, it's their job to learn how to work with the parents, outside help, etc. to deal with special needs children. If you need to talk, feel free to message me. Maybe I can give you some advice on what we've done to help our son that might help yours.
