    5 y.o. difficult child in Kindergarten got suspended for biting, pulling hair, and swinging his coat at his teacher yesterday!

    We met with a private psychologist this morning and his opinion is definitely ODD (he meets 7.5 of the 8 criteria). Het met with just husband and I this time. Next week with difficult child.

    I am appalled that my request to have him evaluated by the school district was received on 9/4 - and nothing has happened about it yet!

    I don't know what to do!!!

    Did you send the request certified to the principal and school district - because if you didn't, they seem to have a habit of just blowing it off. Once they receive it registered mail, the are mandated to a time line to get testing done.

    I believe they are mandated to the time line even if you hand delivery it. The certified sending just documents it legally for you.

    I would call the head of the Special Education dept tomorrow.

    PM me if you want this moved to Special Education forum
