    He is 11 years old ADHD and ODD. He goes to a charter school and is at home right now for disrespecting teachers. Just found out about IEP's. Now I need to know how to navigate in here!

    Welcome. Maybe you should post on Special Education 101. Something to think about: An ADHD/ODD is often the first diagnosis when it is really something else, therefore the stims don't work. You may want to get a second opinion. If your child hasn't seen a Psychiatrist (with the MD) or neuropsychologist, I highly recommend both. Therapists without MD's aren't the greatest diagnosticians, in my opinion. Look at your family tree. Any mood disorders or substance abuse on either side of it? Any neurological/autism in the family? Suicide attempts? Glad you found us.
