So GFG14 was given a diagnosis of schizophrenia spectrum and psychotic disorder with bipolar 2 by a pediatric neuropsychologist. his psychiatrist finally came back with schizoaffective disorder with mood lability and psychosis. A functioning score of 50. As for the type they didn't specify but he totally meets the disorganized type. difficult child is to the point that his teacher who is extremely patient has lost her cool with him and just sends him to the office on a regular schedule. He has to be constantly supervised because he has no sense of boundaries at all. for rules, privacy, social expectations, anything. It's nearly impossible to get him to do any work. He constantly disrupts class, intrudes on others' conversations to the point the other kids in the ED room wanted him suspended every time he opened his mouth according to the teacher. In his social skills group with a cognitive behavioral therapist, she has gotten NOWHERE with him, and is pretty sure if she left the room (mind you these are mostly kids with autism spectrum disorders) they would probably strangle him. He is extremely disorganized, his comments and interruptions are usually off on a tangent. His IEP to this point was based on a diagnosis of ADD and bipolar with a writing disability secondary. But considering how much he's deteriorated this year, I feel it needs reworked. Especially considering he's going from the junior high to the senior high which is much bigger, louder, far more crowded, more chaotic. I can see this next year being a total disaster. I've talked with his case manager at the high school about amending his IEP, and having his new teachers in on it so they know what to expect with him and aren't surprised. I worry that they've put him in a couple of regular ed classes including welding!?! NO!!! don't let that kid play with fire...are you KIDDING? I feel he needs a one on one aide at all times. Left alone for 2 minutes he takes, breaks, messes with something, wanders off, something. and no I'm not exaggerating. I can't let him wait outside on our front steps for 2 minutes waiting for the bus unsupervised or he may break the railing or pull a stair apart, knock rocks into the street with a stick...who knows I worry also that considering how astoundingly obnoxious and rude and disrespectful everyone finds him, they'll get sick of him and start the same cycle of suspending him for everything. Plain and simple though he just doesn't understand what he's doing isn't ok, and can't internalize lessons from it. It's just who he is. *sigh* He's never been able to, but it's gotten worse the last 6 months. He's on a new atyp andipsychotic that we're hoping will help curb some things, but he's just never going to act like a remotely normal 15 yr old. So any suggestions how I go about getting an IEP that will actually be helpful and getting the teachers to understand what is going on with him?
