So I was wondering your opinion you guys. Do you think if someone is bipolar that they are special needs? This is their only possible diagnosis. It's not cupped with something else. I run a daycare and one of the mom's that I had released last night said that her son was special needs. I corrected her and said that I didn't think her son was special needs (she said that as a mother of a special needs child I should be more patient with her son) which I was! BUT he was getting so up and down that he was hurting other kids and as a day care owner I cannot allow that to happen. But as a mother of a child that is multiple dx I do not think that him being bipolar means he's special needs. You would not call an adult with bipolar special needs. So why would you consider your child to be too?
