My name is Loraine and I just joined today. I am eager to put a stop to what has been happening to my son. It's a long story but to shorten it My son was diagnosed with ADHD severe combined type with ODD and anxiet y and depression issues in Kindergarten at age 6 he is now 8. we had went through a number of combination of medications for him and think we have found the combination that is working right before christmas.. He takes Adderal short acting 20 mg 7:30 am, 11:30 am and if needed after school 3:30pm; repiradol 1 mg twice a day, melatonin 300mg 1 @ bedtime and sometimes if needed 2, Celexa 20mg daily. The issue is the school decided at the new school year (2nd grade) for him to switch clsses every week. When we had all agreed that ADHD needs consistence and structured enviroment so you see how this was a surprise to me. I have been fighting this matter for a while and just yesterday sat at an ARDS meeting arguing the issue for 4 hours with the result of no resolution to the matter. The principal not giving in or compromising .. I have 2 liscenced therapist that treat him, nurse practitioner, his psychologist, and I, a mother and a registered RN, in agreement with the child needing a consistent, structured enviroment on a daily bases . Told them that the average child has that previlage of getting those rights but they expect a child who is challenged with severe combined type ADHD/ODD/Depression/anxiety to accommodate and be able to function to his best interest at the age of 8 and with ADHD comes immmaturity so at the maturity level of a 6 year old when an average child doesnt even switch classes til 3rd grade but when they do it si with their peers of the same class. Aerage child doesnt swithc enviroments and peers regularly til 6 th grade. How is this right????
