in the past or currently...what do you attribute it to? Teacher? Supports? Positive discipline program? medications? For kids with behavioral issues-what has been the best intervention school has used to help difficult child? We have a horrible past in school (mulitiple schools), but now difficult child is in a good placement (there's some issues with specialists, but not main teacher) and I attriubute difficult child's successes to his teacher. And the thing is, the qualities that make it successful are about her true caring and concern for what is best for difficult child. She is constantly making adjustments to his schedule and does not blame his behavior on 'discipline issues', but rather on his diagnoses.
