I want to know if anyone else is going through what I am going through and if so if anyone has any advice as i am lost. I apologize in advance for the grammar and spelling as it's the least of my concerns. I'm a 28 year old single mother with 3 kids. My kids are 6, 7 and 8. 2 years ago my daughter was diagnosed with polymicrogyria and epilepsy. and has been taking medications which seem to calm her down. My youngest started school in September of 2013 and that's when I really first noticed the problems. He was getting in trouble a lot and I was getting phone calls to come pick him up on a weekly basis. The school recommended I put him on a IEP and I sought out a psychologist for help as well. I have yet to see a doctor more than once since, and that's not from a lack of trying by any means! During the month my son was under evaluation on the IEP he was forcibly removed from class a total of 51 times. Hitting, kicking, running out of classroom, throwing desks and chairs were only some of the reasons he was being removed and each time had to be put in an empty room or the tantrums would continue. This of course led to a school counsel meeting in which they decided to move my son to a different school with a small special needs class. He is now in a class with 8 students and 4 teachers and really does a lot better although we still have a few issues at school from time to time. The one meeting we did have with the psychologist, she pointed out that he was super smart and that his IQ was off the charts for his age and recommended that we bump him up a grade level educationally, which has helped some with the schooling. The biggest problem now is that the behavior has now found it's way to day care and he is at risk of being removed from the day care center. I don't have a lot of money or time to try to get my kids to different day cares and schools every morning and night. I took him the his pediatrician today without an appointment and started crying to the front desk lady to let me talk to the doctor, Thank God the request was obliged! After listening to me go on the doctor said he believed it was probably Oppositional defiance disorder since he seemed relatively ok if he was one on one. They gave us Intuniv and still recommends we find a psychologist which I am trying hard to do. Curious if this sounds familiar to anyone else and how to you keep sane?
