My son (9) has been doing okay at his current school. He has an IEP and a BIP. We always bring his psychologist to his ARD meetings, at our expense, to help out the teachers at his school with any questions they might have about his diagnosis's. He is diagnosis'ed with ADHD, Bipolar and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). We had a meeting with all staff before school started so that we could get things off on the right start for him as he does not transition well. I thought we were all on the same page. But on the second week of school something happened and it has all seemed to fall apart. My son decided that after resource class he was not going to go back to his regular ed classroom. He said he didn't want the teachers to yell at him anymore to do his work so he hid his backpack behind a trashcan and hid in the playground. No one noticed he was gone for 30 minutes. When the realized he was gone the Principal, AP, resource teachers and coach all went searching for him. When they found him he began to run from him and at one point tried to escape through the gate. This scared every one greatly. No ONE ever called me until after the incident was completly over. The resource teacher was able to talk him into coming to her. He spent the next hour in the AP's office which is his "safe place" to go. He knew what he did was very wrong he just said it all got out of control and he didn't know what to do once he made the initial decicion to hide. Now they are wanting me to fill out papers to do "Consent for Psycological Consulation". I dont understand. I take him weekly to Texas Childrens Hospital for psycological services and weekly for Occupational Therapist (OT) services. The school all knows his Psychologist and speeks with him regularly. This consent gives this person the right to view his education folder, previous assessments, teacher reports and will also give them the right to come observe him in the classroom. It says it may also include interviews with professionals outside of the school community. It may also result in reccomendations for further evaluation or possibility for a change in placement. I want my son to stay in this school. THIS WAS ONE INCIDENT! His first one. Do I have the right to deny them this evaluation? What do I do? I called the school and they said they had to do this because he tried to escape school grounds. It is just PROCEDURE. What do you think? What should I do? I know he is a difficult child but we have been so accomodating to the school. And now this?
