My son is 7 and he has ADHD. Since he has been in school it's been a ton of issues. Very rarely he will get through the school week with no problems. He takes meds to calm him down. It works sometimes but of course not all the time. He is also a stubborn child and some days he will refuse to do his school work.
The school is supposed to be having him evaluated for an IEP so that he can get the help he needs. But in the meantime, I guess since he does not have an IEP, the school calls us to pick him up whenever he is not cooperating. Sometimes 15 or 20 minutes after we drop him off they are calling. Are they allowed to call us to pick him up every time? Aren't they supposed to be trained to work with all types of children?
It's like they do not give him a chance to change his behavior before calling us to come and get him. I don't know how I am going to be able to pick him up everytime when I start school net week. My husband is currently looking fora job and when h starts back to work, he won't be able to pick him up all the time either. We have ran out of options with my son and I am mentally drained.
