The police were called on my 13 year old spectrum kiddo at school (in Oct). I feel like it was totally unjustified and actually provoked by staff, but what I say does not matter. I was told by the police that they would give a warning, but next time he would be arrested (for causing a disturbance). Last week a neuropsychologist (paid for and prompted by the school district's attoney) came to observe my child at school...all day. Apparently 95% of the day was spent by staff maintaining/controlling behavior and only 5% was spent on academics. The day ended with my child in seclusion for an hour. The neuropsychologist told everyone at the table that he was shocked they didn't call police or mental health services (I guess difficult child tipped over a computer monitor (no damage), rattled a door, threw his crocs off his feet, attempted to slap the arm of a teacher when he tried to leave the seclusion room, etc). I feel like although we have a behavior in plan in place (which was violated the day the police were called) that if staff get cranky enough, they will overide the plan (which involves calling me before the police) and call the police and difficult child will be arrested. difficult child has severe anxiety around strangers-that is why he always has one of only three staff members with him at all times. If the police were to come and 'cuff' him and take him away he would likely spit at them or become combative. I am worried enough about that possibility, but then the next scenario scares me even more.....can the school or the police call mental health services/inpatient psychiatric on my son and have him held/medicated and if so, for how long? Is there any way for me to prevent the school from doing so?
