I really wish I could do this anon but I think I will get more advice here and less judging...just hopeful we shall see.
I have a 8 year old boy that has ADHD, and Sensory Processing Disorder and possibly some other things. I am homeschooling and meeting with a behaviour coach she has given me new coping rules. He is a bolter so I am suppose to let him (if its upstairs or the back of the couch) and follow at a safe distance if he bolts outside.
If he refuses to do work I am suppose to simply say "I am sorry you feel that way" I just dont see this working out. How is he suppose to get work done if I let him just take off upstairs and not do work?
I really need some help. I have no one to turn to I am a single mom. I dont want my son labled as a "brat or troubled" kid so I dont want to turn to anyone like family or friends.
So I am turning to a bunch of strangers who can help me or judge...
This week long headach isnt helping any either.
So do any one else have "special needs" kids...how do you get them to follow the rules and do work?
