My son, who is partly mainstreamed and partly in resource room, just got sent home from school at noon. After a terrible first half of the year, we finally got him into a school that has a really excellent team working with him, and I had assumed that his behavior would improve drastically with a good staff. But it is now worse than ever before. Last week he pushed a girl down, several times he has hit teachers. Yesterday he pulled an electrical socket out of a wall. And today he had 6 tantrums and they had to take the other kids out of the classroom. I just don't understand. When he is with me and my husband, he is really pretty good (at least compared to how he is at school). But in the school setting, he just loses it. I'm fairly sure the school's answer is going to be to suggest (yet again) that he be placed in a self-contained classroom with the kids with mental retardation, even though his intelligence is actually high average and he is academically way above what is being taught in there. Am I going to have to end up homeschooling? (He does great at home with a tutor.) Are there any drugs that might help? He's already on ritalin, lowest dose. Any suggestions would be welcomed!
