Hi all. I am posting this to get people's advice/opinons/knowledge on getting a child tested and what kind of assistance I could expect or my school is required to provide. I have set a appointment with the family dr. for both my children. I think they both have ADHD and my son might have OPP. Lets start with -My son has been having problems at "school" since he was 3 ( he was in Headstart). Last yr he had a preschool ass., modified day, and constant problems with teacher. Basically on the 3rd day on head start I was called for a parent teacher meeting. Wrong foot was started then. Now he is in Pre-k. I learned my lesson last yr and have an excellent rapport with his teacher. She is a blessing. He is violent with her and will kick and hit her if she forces an issue. He hit other children, thrown chairs, knock over a table. He yells and with destroy other student work ( like when they are at centers ) impulsivly though. Very difficult for him to transition. Throws food. Lays on floor and refuses to get up. States he hates school doesn't like his teacher etc. He has been suspended muiltiple times and is now on a amended day 8-11:30. I can't work becaused on any given day I could get called to pick him up. (usually the teacher will just handle it herself, but if a administrator see this he is often sent home or suspended. Sometime only 30 minute after I drop him off.) Because of this I have not worked since school started and will actually just stay in the parking lot at the school just in case I have to pick him up. (I live about 25 minutes away from the school and with no job don't have the gas to go back and forth repeatedly) The teacher, principal, Pre-k director and I have meeting every 3 weeks. to discuss his behavior. I have the next meeting on Monday Dec 5th. I also have a the dr. appointment for him that day. I was going to request an IEP for him, but is there anything else I should do? Thanks for any info in advance. P.S. I don't have any problems at home other than the usual kid stuff. He does not hit me or rage as he does at school. Of course home is not a structured enviroment.
