My difficult child has ODD/ADHD and started middle school this year with his 504 from elem. school. He has been doing very poorly since the beginning of the school year and most of it is due to his choices not to follow the rules, participate, do the work, and his inability to focus. We have had several meetings with all of the teachers and counselors, but not much seems to improve and some of the teachers are getting tired of giving consessions to grant extensions, etc. They want all of the responsibility for the assignments to be on his shoulder's and he can't handle it. It is a nightly battle to get him on track, do homework, bring us reports from teachers, etc. What do we do when they aren't giving enough help to allow him to succeed? Because he isn't considered to have "special needs" he is treated like all the other children and I don't think it is fair when we are doing all we can aside from sitting in class with him all day (which we have done in previous years at school). One teacher even told my son that we were taking advantage of her and when I emailed her to confront her about her comments, guess what...she never bothered to respond. I just don't know what to do.
