Hello I am so glad I have found a site that can assist me in helping my daughter. I am not quite familiar with the acroynms. I have been through hell and back. My daughter has recently been diagnosis with ODD. She is nine years old. Let me give you a history of family. My daughter was the only child in my family for seven years. I am a single parent of her and a 2yr old son. Problems began in pre-K. She refused to go to sleep. She was aggressive but everybody loved her. She was a loving child when she wanted to be. She was suspended for one day because she poured paint on the floor of the classroom. She cut a little girls plait off ( she only had two plaits). When she went to kindergarden, I told them that they had to be firm and could not be her friend. Teacher stated that by the end of the month, they would be friends (my daughter and her teacher). By the end of the month, she was in another classroom. At this point, I thought I had a bad child. The next teacher was a male and took control of my daughter. I did not have any problems from my daughter for the rest of the year. I am thinking yes it has ended but no it did not. First grade teacher called me EVERYDAY at work. Nyla want do her work, Nyla just staring at me, Nyla is humming, Nyla this, blah blah. Nothing major just petty things. 2nd grade teacher just refuse to deal with Nyla. Nyla would get into it with the same five kids in the school. One day they friends the next they are enemies. Well they began to label Nyla a bully. They recommend her to SST (Student Support Team) to create a plan of action. We started with the star sheet. That did not work becasue they never made it to me. Nyla would trash them before she got home. So we had it where they would give them to her nana. That lasted for about a couple weeks. So we tried a basket of coins. Well in thirty minutes the basket was empty. (a coin was taken away everytime she was out of line.) Next the school district tested her for gifted and that was average even though according to her teachers she was a head of the class. She read on a 4th grade level in 2nd grade. Then we had teachers going around saying she was a liar. SST wanted to have her evaluated by their counseler. The counseler diagnosis her with emotional disorder. She was sent to another school for evaluation for sped. During this time she had problems but not as many. She was during excellent. During all this time she was on honor roll. I asked the school district if she could stay in this school since we were not have that many problems. They said okay as long as the principal ok's it. The principal refused. She was only there for a semester. So she was sent to another school. She was in a regular class but spent one hr a day in sped for behavior and math totur. Well she did good in the regular class but in the sped she had major problems. She was only there for a semester and three weeks. So we are off to another school. In this school, she was in sped fulltime. This is where major problems really started to happen. The others student were much move severe than she was. (I was told this by the teacher) The teacher was really babysitting and not teaching. I had to call to have homework sent home. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/919Mad.gifBy this time she is in 3rd grade. She has been suspend over 10 times in a two year span. At the end of the year I decided to withdraw her and put her in private school. Ok within three weeks she is suspend for three days for disrespecting the teachers. I know it is long but this my life. I have changed jobs three times in the last three years. Now she feels that I am neglecting her because of her 2yr brother. She is receiving counseling weekly by a pychachist. The private school has started deducting or giving her zeros in classwork because of her behavior. Please tell me if there is anything I can do.
