I am new to the site and don't know all the abreviations,,,,so forgive me. I am a single mom with 2 sons, one of which is a difficult but beautiful little boy with ADHD and ODD. This is our first year in public school (3rd) and after the first day (only 3 hours mind you) the teacher calls and tells me Fletcher is the most disobedient child she has ever had. Of course she didn't read any of the 4 papers I filled out detailing his conditions or medicastions. I have since then met with the teacher, principal and Special Education teacher to discuss a "plan". The spec-ed teacher said he needs a label to get any kind of special attention. To me, understanding this is a rough transition isn't too much to ask or need for a label. I am sure some of you have experience with transition to a public school and could give me some much needed advice to this issue. I am so thankful for such a site. I have felt very much alone in the battle to make my son "human" to other people. I hope you can understand that term. Inside this wall-bouncing, babbling mess is a sensitive and very inteligent little boy! Thanks for reading my ramblings, and any help is much appreciated!!
