My daughter has ADHD and her teacher and principal sent home a letter yesterday telling us that if she is not on meds she needs to be kept home. She had a hard day but did not cause any harm to anyone else or helself... Are they allowed to do this? I am tired of it, if she is not on meds they send her home and tell us that she can not be there without them.
***UPDATE*** OK she is on an IEP, she sees a bahavioral therapist, my husband and I go to the school regularly and take an active role in her education, she sees the school counselor daily. I am not saying that she is theirs to deal with, we are active, very active in her life at the school. However they should not be allowed to force meds on her by telling us without them she cant be there or asking her if she is on meds.
Funny how when it isnt your child you are quick to decide a kid should be on mehamphetamine based medication. There are things that can be done and are done with her, she had one rough day, ONE, and everyone and their dog is screaming medication it is ridiculous.
