  • I recommend that you contact Heather T. Forbes. She has written a book and has a website & a lot of material (articles, discussion forum for parent support, classes, daily email support/thought of the day list, etc.) available online for parents of children with extreme behaviors. You can contact her through her website; I do believe she responds to email from parents asking for guidance, and she may be able to offer you a referral to a practitioner in your area who is in line with her approach. Or else help you know how to identify practitioners who could be good to work with. You also could look into info from Daniel A. Hughes (books & website) who is a respected expert on attachment disorder & the commonly associated behavioral disorders.
    There are, broadly speaking, two schools of thought concerning R.A.D. and if you are at the end of your rope, I highly recommend you check out Heather's "Beyond Consequences" approach.

  • Is she getting medical help for these conditions? If not, then a boot camp will not help! She needs a doctor first.

  • Why in the world would you send a mentally deficient child to bootcamp?
    "I" would seek recommendations from her mental health specialist on treatment options.
    Her meds may need adjustment. She and the entire family may need intensive therapy.

    But, in all likely hood, the last thing she needs is to be locked up with the criminal element.

      Well there's your first problem right there.....this ISN'T a group. A member would realize that.

  • What have you tried? What has her doctor said? Boot camps are usually for teenagers with emotional or behavioral problems, not younger children who have mental issues such as bipolar disorder that they aren't responsible for.

      Really, cause I told you this ISN'T a stating facts means I'm on a "high horse"? Someone needs a hobby other than whining when people don't give her the answers she wants to hear.
