On Tues, I went to the IEP where we sat down with- the neuropsychologist so we could go over his report. During the 4 hour meeting, the social worker was called out because difficult child left the classroom. Well, later that afternoon, she didn't want to run the track in gym. She was given the option of walking but decided she wanted to just sit, which was fine. Well, I guess she was jumpy - I don't know because next she was hopping onto a friends bike (friend is classmate who is wheelchair bound) and was told to get off. She got off and kicked the gym teacher and needed to be restrained. She was sent home, but not suspended. Principal calls later that evening to discuss that he does want her to have a consequence so we agree on an in-school so she can do make up work and improve her grades. I get a call at 10am asking for me to come get her. She "shut down" and refused to respond. She was fine when I got there. We took her to her family doctor and we put her on a small dose of SSRI. Today husband got a call from the arresting officer from last fall. The gym teacher filed a complaint A DAY AFTER THE INCIDENT. There is no physical evidence that she left from the kick. Officer stated that the gym teacher filed the complaint AFTER hearing that she was on probation and stated this teacher felt she needed to go to jail to learn a lesson.......the teacher KNEW she was on probation and KNEW that a second complaint would land her in trouble. This teacher was NOT in the meeting on Tues, does not know about the evaluation results. My difficult child has Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD) traits - but isn't because she is social. She's a 7 year old stuck in an 11 year old body. Her memory has holes because of brain damage. It's attempted to make up for the damage by using other areas of the brain. so tell me, how is having her arrested a second time going to HELP HER learn a lesson that the first time didn't?????? What the heck is this school doing?!??!!?
