I am new to the site. Hi! I am the stepmom to a 6 year old (almost 7) boy who was recently diagnosed with ODD, and he has not started the new school year (1st grade) very well already (we are on day 4). He really struggled with behavior last year, which is putting it lightly. I have an appointment with the school counselor and school psychologist tomorrow to go over his diagnosis paperwork and come up with a plan for him this year because his teacher has already expressed difficulty with his "activity level." Again, that is putting it lightly. At his evaluation the psychologist was adamant that he doesn't qualify as ADHD at this time because he only had a couple of the ADHD markers so she wanted to test that again when he's a bit older. He, however, has NO impulse control and a good temper on him. He's VERY loud and "in your face" about everything, which doesn't exactly win him long-term friends. So I'm debating whether to push for a 504 or IEP....I know 504 is the minimum we'll work out tomorrow. I just want to give him the best chance to succeed in school. Ideas? Should I push more for the sensory side of things right off the bat (like a bouncy seat)? I'm not sure what to address, what to push for, what to allow and what to not allow. He is a little slow with reading and has a pronunciation delay, but otherwise he does fine academically when you can keep him in his seat and not messing with other people.
