Sorry it is my first time here. My difficult child son is 10 years old, and he has a hereditary hearing disorder. I'm a single mom of three, married twice. His father hasn't seen him since he was 1 1/2 yrs. old, nor has any of the other family had anything to do with him. I left his father because he was very abusive, so when I could I got out. I have since gone back to college and I am now an LPN/EMT. My difficult child is a great kid, but the issues at school are getting worse. He was just given a 2 day out of school suspension, because he got angry at the teacher for yelling at him for something that he says was an accident. Backing up a bit, he went to kindergarten when he just turned 5. I was attending nursing classes at the time and the teacher basically told me that my son was dumb in sooo many words. Well I took him in and found out that he needed hearing aides. He took kindergarten again, finally in 4th grade did they decide that he needed an IEP. Well after much stress that he's been through, and myself also. I took him to a behavioral specialist. He basically laughed at me and said that the only problem my difficult child had was he gets angry when kids, and yes adults make fun of him. I am so lost, as I dealt with some of the same stuff growing up, but he gets really angry. I'm not sure what to do anymore. He is a very good kid. If anyone has any suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated. I love him sooo much, and he deserves better treatment.
