Hi All... I am new to this board so I apologize if this is a repeat. My ds will be starting 1st grade in 1 week. I am so friggin nervous! Kindergarten was hard from day 1... constant complaints from the teacher on his behaviour. Not a day went by where I did not hear something from his teacher. Basically he would not listen to her, he went into tantrums whenever she would ask him to stop doing something, he would shout out negative comments when she was instructing. He said mean things to other kids. He made no significant friendships and was not invited to any birthday parties. This past year, he has been evaluated for both ADD/ADHD and Aspergers. Now they are saying ODD. I formally requested Learning Disability (LD) testing but the school has denied it "temporarily", saying they wanted to work on a behavior management plan first. Summer has been excellent for him. He is going to Y camp and I have had no complaints from the staff. I even occasionally catch him playing with a campmate when I come to pick him up. Behavior at home has been ok. He does argue alot. If I give my opinion on something he will say the opposite or "no you don't". But he is also very helpful and caring when he wants to be. Last night for the first time ever he threatened me physically and then started to push me and throw socks at me. I am a single mom, working full-time. The poor kid is in daycare/school for 10 hours a day. I do blame myself for that but have no other option, financially-speaking. I don't have time or heart for all of this. I really do not know what is wrong with him. I don't know how to handle him and am afraid for what he might become in the future. He is only 6! What will he become at 16?!?!? I guess the reason I am writing is to ask if anyone has any hints for me... just dealing with him, or what might be wrong with him?
