Hey everyone! It's been like a year since I've been here and a lot has happened since then. My son Heyward has been diagnosed at age 8 to be Bi-Polar, ADHD, ODD, with anxiety and panic attacks. Every medicine he is on, he has a violent reaction to so, it's fun as we are now on no medications. The school he is in has been fighting me tooth and nail to get an IEP. I requested one LAST April and I was told the he didnt need one. So we started the school year on a bad note. As his behavior got worse, the school noted that Heyward was a "problem". So, through MUSC (his therapist), we removed him from school and put him in a program run by the hospital. Well, that was AWFUL! They put him on Depakote and he had another reaction. He had sores all in his mouth and he couldnt talk or eat. He lost 4 pounds. I removed him from the program and put him back in his main school. Well, Heyward still had the sores and would get panic attacks, but then he started wetting himself at school. So, instead of talking to me, the school called DSS saying I was medically neglecting my son and that they think he was being abused cause he would wet himself! GRRRRR!! So, in January, my sons therapist and I DEMANDED an IEP. We had the meeting yesterday. My son finally has an IEP, but the school doesnt want to deal with him, so he is going to a self contained class in a different school. The school pysch and the principle are such liars. My sons teacher was in tears cause she adores Heyward. So, thats my year in a nut shell. Where do I go from here?
